Making waves in the serviced office market, one of the UK’s leading serviced office providers, BE Offices (BE), has recently announced their new division, BESpoke.
What is BESpoke?
Aimed at clients seeking an all-inclusive, one-stop service, the division offers a start to finish process. The BESpoke package includes sourcing suitable space; negotiating terms; designing, managing and implementing fit out; designing and installing a complete IT package and continuing to manage the property on behalf of the client for the entire length of their lease or licence period.
What’s more, the division will be run by industry Veteran Jonathan Weinbrenn. Previously a senior director at The Instant Group (formerly Instant Offices), Jonathan has years of experience within the business and with Londonoffices.
Excitingly, this new service will greatly benefit Londonoffices’ clients. Alex Williamson, our Corporate Account Director said. “BESpoke is great news for the serviced office industry. It brings a solution that fits perfectly between a serviced office and a traditional lease. All the flexibility of a serviced office is still available while lease benefits such as a personalised fit are still an option.
Jonathan comments, “Having spent most of my working life in this sector I recognised the need to eliminate as much hassle and stress as possible for flexible space occupiers by offering a virtual cradle to the grave service. This will enable companies to source, occupy and leave offices with the minimum of fuss.
“The beauty of BESpoke is that while we become the ultimate outsourcing model we provide a service tailored to the specific needs of each client. Importantly it will offer companies speed of expansion and total flexibility.”
How Will the Service Operate?
BESpoke plans to lease properties directly from landlords using the BE covenant and later sub-lease to their clients. This enables them to source the most appropriate space for their clients with ease as well as ensuring they receive the best possible lease or licence agreement.
This form of sub-leasing also delivers BE a stronger sense of security, knowing they have a tenant lined up for an office space before it is bought. Any surplus space within a building will be converted into a BE serviced office.
A BE Offices Perspective
David Saul, BE’s Managing Director and co-founder said, “I believe the creation of BESpoke is an industry first. It will be a real game-changer for occupiers who need short term flexible space tailor-made for their specific needs.
“For the first time, occupiers can turn to one provider to source their entire flexible space needs that will include a complete design and fit-out package aimed at reflecting a company’s own corporate identity.”
Although BE has been traditionally London centric BESpoke will be able to cater to clients’ needs anywhere in the UK and the facility will soon look to service companies’ overseas requirements too.
Alex concludes, “We at Londonoffices are excited to be working with Jonathan and to present BESpoke to our clients. Jonathan’s experience in the industry and with some of the biggest companies in the world, combined with such a great product will add considerable value to Londonoffices’ clients.”
