What is flexible space?

The flexible office sector has seen significant growth over the last ten years and continues to grow at an increasing rate. With an uncertain economic climate, organisations are no longer prepared to commit to long term leases and be tied to office space they may not need in the future.

The most expensive square foot, is the one you don’t use.

Flexible office space is typically known as “serviced offices” and “business centres” around the world. Whilst the label of “executive suites” is used in the US and some other markets. Regardless of the name, you pay one monthly invoice for a fully inclusive service.

The benefit of such space includes:

  • One all-inclusive monthly invoice. Reducing your administration time.
  • Prices include the office and typically all services, such as: Telephone, IT, utilities, security, cleaning and reception services. You really have no other services to waste time purchasing.
  • Your office provider will handle all services and suppliers on a daily basis. Leaving you free to focus on growing your business.
  • Space can be taken over any time period ensuring you avoid paying for space you don’t need.
  • Ability to upsize, downsize and even move as required, ensuring your space meets your changing business needs.
