Serviced Offices

What is a serviced office?

Including the basics for any small business owner, a serviced office is a workspace with the essentials of desk, chair and phone line.

You’ll have the benefit of enjoying privacy and size of your choice from our range of available sizes and safe storage so you can leave your business items overnight without taking chunks of work and technology home with you.

And lastly, your office will be cleaned every night ensuring you walk into something fresh and presentable every day!

Why a serviced office?

Offices are for business owners who are both established and starting up that need the permanence of a dedicated desk but have too much stuff to fit on one desk. Stock brokers, for example, utilising several computer screens, diaries, planners, calendar spreads, forms, print-outs, etc. may find a dedicated desk a little restrictive.

Another important factor a business owner might consider is privacy. Lawyers, banks, financial advisors, etc. who handle sensitive, confidential information may not want to work on a desk where their information is open to prying eyes. A serviced office offers that necessary security; however, all one needs to do is swing their office door open and they’re out in the collaborative coworking space. It’s the best of both worlds.

Those who have been on the search for an office space before may have noticed that most commercial office spaces offer little more than the paint on the walls and the floor under your feet. So, the price looks great but not as great once you’re out shopping for business phone & internet bundles, a sturdy desk, a swivel chair (every credible business has one), and so on.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll have to see where the nearest place for coffee is, where there is a communal kitchen and bathroom (if any) and the list goes on and on. After the laundry list is complete, you’ll then need to keep the place clean yourself, wasting valuable work time, or you’ll need to spend extra on someone else to do it for you.

It’s all quite a hassle and becomes far more expensive than was originally expected. A good serviced office can take away so much of that pain by providing the basics while you bring the technological equipment. This way, you’re operational faster which means less down time for your business!

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.
