It’s easy to assume that large corporations with well-established businesses prefer to house their central operations in offices with long-term contractual lease agreements.
For some, that may be true. Yet whereas long-term office leases were once the only option, today organisations of all sizes have the ability to choose a more flexible approach - and they’re welcoming it with open arms.
Welcome to Landmark’s serviced office video news. In this two part episode Richard Gill, Managing Director of Landmark Plc interviews Andrew Shepherd-Barron, Equity Research Director of Peel Hunt about the issues relating to the valuation of serviced office companies.
Topics discussed include:
• Valuing a serviced office provider • A valuer’s approach to new offices • The valuation of serviced offices vs other serviced industries • How recession has affected serviced office valuations
With locations in London's vibrant West End and the beating heart of the City, Landmark Plc’s serviced offices are in more demand than ever. Alan Todd, Head of Sales, rounds up the five premium rated business centres of 2016:
Serviced offices are currently one of the fastest growing sub sectors in the commercial property market. A recent report released in May 2015 by Deloitte (The London Business Footprint: The Growth of Serviced Offices) shows that in the last decade serviced offices have increased their share of Central London floor space by over 67 per cent.
It takes a supplier of luxury serviced offices in London, like Landmark Plc, to know the market inside out. So trust us when we say that serviced offices aren't an alternative workplace solution anymore.
They're now a first choice solution for business of every size, shape and stature.
If there's one thing that every industry has in common, it's jargon.
From the SEO and CTR of marketing to the Chapter 11 of finances, not to mention the computing vocabulary that's RAMmed full of confusing terminology, it's often difficult to follow - let alone understand.
Commercial property is no different, and this long-standing industry has developed some pretty impressive froth and jargon over the centuries. How does an 'alienation' grab you? Or dilapidation? Not forgetting AGA (not the cooker), GIA and IR leases, of course.
It's make or break time. You've got a great meeting room overlooking the West End. You've organised the agenda to perfection. The audiovisual equipment has been tested, the refreshments ordered. Your guests' overnight accommodation is sorted, and you've even arranged a pick-up from the airport. You're all ready to go.
Look around you. When it comes to celebrating diversity, there's no place like the office.
From the sullen to the snooty, the bubbly to the brainy, the workplace is full of truly unique and inimitable characters. Of course you may draw a few parallels between certain individuals - especially if you've ever seen an episode of Channel 4's The IT Crowd.
If you haven't, allow us to enlighten you. And may we suggest you educate yourself on all 4 series of The IT Crowd pronto. You might just have a Eureka moment.
Think of a serviced office and what springs to mind? Flexible contracts, short-term offices, affordable workspace?
You can expect all of the above and more from a serviced office, such as those provided by Yours Truly. But one quite significant perk that you might not have considered is the networking opportunities that come with it.
