What are Serviced Offices?
Serviced offices are a relatively new concept in the world of commercial real estate, they were thought up by a businessman in the early 1990s. He was away on business in Europe due to meet with various people in different cities and he realised he had nowhere to hold meetings or to conduct business other than in his hotel room or in public cafes. He thought it would be great if there was some sort of offering that provided temporary office space and meeting room hire but without the need to lease long-term offices. He then went about creating facilities that offered office space with meeting room hire. Today there are tens of thousands of properties and offices in every town and city around the globe.
Basically a serviced office today is an office or office building that is fully-equipped and managed by a business centre management company (also known as an ‘office provider’) that then rents individual offices or floors to a number of businesses. They are also sometimes referred to as ‘flexible offices’ or ‘executive office suites’ (depending on location) are found in central business districts and downtown areas, as well as in business parks and are often also strategically located close to international airports and other transport hubs.
