The monthly spend on a flexible office can seem much higher than that of a leasehold space. However, serviced office contracts include various provisions and amenities, some of which are not often contained in conventional leases.
When the complete package and ancillary costs are calculated and factored in, flexible office space is a very cost-effective option for corporate occupiers. Additional financial incentives include small deposits, no dilapidations, and little, if any, capital expenditure.
The all-inclusive monthly pricing model provides agility for those unsure of headcount movement, without the need for costly long-term supplier contracts or facilities management.
Our team of flexible specialists has over 30-years of experience and will guide you every step of the way, de-coding, simplifying, and adding value to the process through rich spatial and financial analysis.
