From Serviced Office to FTSE 100
The Telegraph yesterday published an article revealing that FTSE 100 energy giant Petrofac, currently valued at more than $8bn, began its life in a serviced office ΓÇô highlighting the fact that serviced office space can provide the perfect platform from which to launch a truly successful company.
But what is it that makes a serviced office such a good place to operate your business? Well the variety of space and locations certainly help, as do the reduced overheads required by both established and fledgling businesses when comparing this type of space to that of a conventional property lease.
Often however, it is the support that serviced office based businesses enjoy by operating from a dedicated, business focused centre that really makes the difference. With the majority of serviced offices providing access to on-site support, meeting rooms and a host of other facilities ΓÇô serviced offices can provide access to everything that a business needs without them having to invest, or be tied to, the upkeep and maintenance of such features.
The flexibility offered by this type of office space can also prove attractive, with the ability to expand, restructure and re-jig your office requirements at relatively short notice. Indeed in the wake of the recession the damage inflicted on businesses that found themselves ΓÇ£over-committedΓÇ¥ and trapped in a rigid property arrangement were all too clear. The flexible short-term leases available through serviced offices are therefore part of the industries growing appeal.
Of course not all serviced offices are the same ΓÇô but with over 2000 locations in the UK alone, it would be fair to say that they do offer something suitable for every kind of office based business. From the Grade A Office Space of iconic building such as Canary Wharf, to something local and practical ΓÇô serviced offices are varied, widespread and available across a broad range of price bands.
