to the report of a group of experts at CoStar, the serviced office sector
has grown 31% in the UK since 2008 and promises to increase in value to £126bn
by 2025. Serviced offices’ popularity increase in recent years is not
unexpected, thanks to the numerous benefits and peace-of-mind they provide.
Another trending office concept, co-working spaces, also promise the

Even though some co-working
spaces offer private rooms which people can book in advance to work on a
project, this cannot be guaranteed every time and your work can easily be
exposed to the eyes of a fellow desk-mate. This is not the type of
“collaborative environment” you have signed up for. In serviced offices
however, security and privacy are guaranteed as the office space only belongs
to you and your team.
