Carrying out an office fit out outside of London
Competition in the marketplace stems from the battle for the best location and talent; with rent prices and competition so high in London, it’s no wonder there is an increasing number of companies moving away. Among these names are HSBC and Amazon, who have recently sought new offices in Birmingham and Manchester – and for good reason.
The saving on rent rates in Manchester average at £20 per sq ft and with lease lengths usually spanning between 5-10 years, this is a saving that could contribute to a larger spend on a higher specification fit out. Consider the lifecycle of your office and the period of time that you intend to stay; will it be more cost effective to spend more on your fit out initially to save expenditures on reparations later on? All offices endure significant wear and tear throughout occupation and to keep your office looking fresh and up to standard you will need to afford refits and refreshes during your tenancy. Thus, wouldn’t it be better to spend money on a more sustainable fit out from day one?
