officebroker.com’s Rebecca-Jane Strawford has dealt often with the team at Warnford Court, which is run by The Office Group.
“Warnford Court is formally the office of The Stock Exchange and offers design-led space within a short walk of Bank and Liverpool Street. Individual offices are available on flexible terms that allow businesses to take advantage of the many facilities onsite.
“There are formal and informal meeting rooms, bike storage areas, showers, a flat, a lounge and access to ΓÇÿThe ClubΓÇÖ which offers co-working facilities in a new way.
“The Club has been created around the specific needs of start-ups, small businesses and mobile workers, in essence creating a community of businesses.

“The Office Group who manage this building are also pioneers in promoting a ΓÇÿgreenΓÇÖ working environment. They believe that as owners of the buildings that they operate in, they have a responsibility and an opportunity to do their bit for the environment.
“ItΓÇÖs not about paying lip service and just having a recycle bin in reception, theyΓÇÖve really thought it through and really invested in it, above and beyond whatΓÇÖs normally expected.
“The great thing is that all this is not at the expense of the quality of the fit-out throughout the building.”
Rebecca-Jane knows the building well and can testify to its unique success as a business centre; but how do the tenants of Warnford Court feel about working life with The Office Group?

“As a new start-up business we were seeking a flexible and high quality office solution and this was perfectly solved by The Office GroupΓÇÖs ΓÇÿClubΓÇÖ concept,” says fellow tenant, Rob McCargow of Cadence Partners.
“As we rapidly grew our business, Kevin and the team were swiftly able to accommodate us at short notice with larger offices and dedicated support which took away a large amount of the hassle from what can be a challenging and time consuming process normally.
“Their pricing structure is refreshingly transparent unlike the larger serviced office providers that we met and the staff are unfailingly polite and supportive.
