Bizarre Office Requests Are The Business

Bizarre Office Requests Are The Business is the UK’s largest online provider of commercial office space to both serviced office space providers and businesses looking for serviced or conventional office space anywhere in the world.

The company, which was founded by entrepreneurs Jim Venables and Andy Haywood five years ago, and has grown into a multi-million pound enterprise with offices in the UK and the US has released details of some of its more curious office requests.

They include:

  • A London-based company which asked for an office with its own bomb shelter which would withstand any terrorist attack including nuclear or germ warfare
  • A music industry mogul who requested diamond-studded toilet seats for a certain demanding diva client
  • A pregnant MD who asked for space for a built-in baby scanner
  • Numerous requests for offices with space to accommodate employees’ pets – including one MD who asked for a built in tank to house his large collection of piranhas
  • A colonic irrigation company which needed additional space for ‘waste’ storage
  • A company which said it would only take office space in a building with attractive receptionists
  • An MD with a keen interest in taxidermy who wanted a gallery adjoining his office to display his collection of stuffed animals
  • A car valeting company which asked for a built-in office to wash cars
  • A rural office which needed be at least a mile from the nearest farm so that staff would not be distracted by ‘country smells’
  • A high-maintenance MD who asked for her office to be fitted with a personal spray tan booth
  • A Feng Shui-obsessed MD who requested an office with all windows and doors facing east
  • An office room with just six bar stools inside – nothing else! The company then wanted to sit on the stools and look at images projected on a wall
  • An IT company which insisted that there were to be no bars or outlets selling alcohol within walking distance of the office

Jim says: “Every business has its own specific needs and, as the UK’s largest online provider of commercial office space and with the mission to become ‘the global place to find your office space’, we are obviously used to matching office accommodation with our clients’ needs.”
