Kingston University serviced office market

17 May 2017. News.

Following the report and presentation from Kingston University on different generations in the workplace and work culture, our other Broadening Horizons project team recently presented on the current state of the serviced office market and how it is this developing.

The serviced office project was run in conjunction with our client Office Space in Town and making up the team were students Hyunji Lim, Heather Makufa, Veronika Zidulina and project leader Abigail Thompson-O’Connor.

The Kingston University project team visited a range of serviced office providers in London and concluded that the success of the modern serviced office industry is dependent upon offering flexibility and a stress-free environment to clients.

Their key recommendations focused on the serviced offices including assistive technologies, a variety of breakout spaces (including outdoors), leisure and wellbeing facilities, fully equipped spaces and organising communal social events to support networking. The students also highlighted that different sectors gravitated to specific areas of London and those sectors each wanted something different in terms of services and facilities from serviced offices.

Abi, from Kingston University, says “Thank you very much to Peldon Rose for allowing us to complete this research. It’s been a really great experience for all of us and we’ve learnt a lot. Through the implementation of our recommendations, we hope that OSiT will be able to further build upon their success in providing client satisfaction within their serviced office business. We also hope that Peldon Rose will be able to use our suggestions in their future workplace design projects.”

Benjamin Murray, Spokesperson for Peldon Rose says: “We would like to thank Abi, Hyunji, Heather and Veronika for their hard work on the Broadening Horizons programme over the 4 months. We would also like to thank Office Space in Town for all the time and support they provided. We were delighted to support Kingston University again this year and were really impressed with how they developed their skills when compiling their report and presentation. We wish them all the best with their studies and career.”
