Office Space in Huddersfield and Leeds
Businesses seek office space for a number of reasons and their motivation varies, according to the type of the business, customers, expansion plans, budgets and numerous other factors.
General reasons for seeking new office space include the need to be closer to key customers, to allow growth, to move to a specific location or to be closer to a factory or manufacturing plant. Small businesses may want to retain a certain address, others will want access to flexible office facilities. Operating in a ‘hub’ with other new companies is attractive to many small businesses – for example start-ups and creative industries often work in similar office spaces, allowing them to share practices and network.
There are many options available for companies seeking office space. Large office units such as call centres may be based out of city centres and closer to key road and rail links such as motorways and tube stations. This can be useful when large numbers of staff will operate from the site and car parking isn’t widely available, or cost effective.
Government grants may be available for renting office space in more deprived areas and employment opportunities may be extended to local residents. This is often the case for data processing warehouses and contact centres, with cost effective, out of town office locations. Larger rental offices may need long lease agreements and substantial tie-in clauses. Legal advice is required when signing such contracts.
For smaller operations, letting flexible office space is highly popular as it gives the freedom for rapid expansion and quick moves. Pricing and contracts are offered on short-term bases and many offices come equipped with cabling and telephony pre-installed, security and 24 hour access, on site facilities such as meeting rooms, kitchens and other basics. Advanced flexible office spaces may offer car parking and additional services such as on site receptionists to take calls, on site flexible admin support may also be provided, along with facilities and IT staff.
Whatever your business requires you should always look for the basics in renting an office space. Hire legal help and have facilities experts on hand for advice on decisions. Look for public transport links and parking, ask yourself if clients and staff would find it convenient. Research the facts on tie-in clauses or penalties for moving out. Check that the building’s set up will suit your business, for example a lively and busy shared office with onsite security and a car park will be better if you run a late night operation. Consider facilities such as a place to meet a client for coffee onsite or nearby. Check that IT facilities on site match your own requirements, particularly if you use Macs or have specific data and server requirements.
