Why use a serviced office?
Offices are for established and new business owners who require the permanence of a dedicated desk but have too much stuff to fit on one desk. A dedicated desk, for example, may be too small if you use multiple computer screens, diaries, planners, calendar spreads, forms, print-outs, and so on.
Another important consideration for a business owner is privacy. Lawyers, banks, and financial advisors, for example, may not want to work at a desk where their information is visible to prying eyes. A serviced office provides the necessary security, but all one has to do is swing their office door open and they’re in the collaborative coworking space. It combines the best of both worlds.
Those who have looked for office space in the past may have noticed that most commercial office spaces provide little more than the paint on the walls and the floor beneath your feet. So the price appears to be attractive, but it isn’t when you factor in business phone and internet bundles, a sturdy desk, a swivel chair (every credible business has one), and so on.
After that, you’ll need to figure out where the nearest coffee shop is, if there’s a communal kitchen and bathroom (if there is one), and so on. After you finish the laundry, you’ll either have to keep the place clean yourself, wasting valuable work time, or pay someone else to do it for you.
It’s all very inconvenient and ends up being far more expensive than anticipated. A well-serviced office can alleviate a lot of that pain by providing the necessities while you bring the technology. This allows you to be operational faster, which means less downtime for your company!

Is a serviced office right for me?
If you’ve been looking for a place your business can call home for too long and your total expenses are getting messy between rent, phone, internet and your personal expenses, then maybe a fully serviced office is more your speed.
At Waterman, besides the aforementioned benefits, you’ll also have:
- Access to our Community Managers who exist to help you settle in, meet neighbouring tenants and introduce you to contacts you might need in your business.
- Access to networking events aimed at strengthening the business community and encouraging collaboration.
- Access to communal kitchen, bathrooms, recreational areas and outdoor spaces.
And this is just to name a few.
Serviced offices are also great for those who are moving their business out of home and are used to their own space. That can be a tough adjustment to just hop straight into an open pool of people when peace and quiet is something you’re used to.
A serviced office offers the best of both those worlds.
