Serviced office space is key to beating the recession
Speakers at a recent BCA summit concluded that while the office space and commercial property market has been hit hard by the recession, with Birmingham among the most affected regional cities, the market is now on the road to recovery.
Business centre operatives at the summit announced a positive increase in enquiries, many of which are from new and small businesses. Jennifer Brooke, executive director of the BCA, says:
“More and more businesses in Birmingham have realized during this recession that for any location with fewer than 50 staff, serviced offices are the intelligent business solution, being generally less expensive and certainly more flexible than conventional office space.”
Here at officebroker.com we recently reported on the most popular office space locations for small businesses, and found that Birmingham was indeed the most popular, followed by Manchester and then Luton.
The serviced office can provide a dramatic reduction in overheads, and the flexibility of the terms can help ease businesses through difficult periods and economic uncertainty.
Brooke concludes: “The easy in, easy out license agreements offer flexibility and peace of mind; giving total transparency on costs, unlike a conventional lease. This is essential during recessionary times.”
