Our management team
We’ve been in business since 1973, and over that time have learnt exactly what companies need from a serviced office. We’re attuned to the fast-evolving business environment, and offer the very latest in IT and telephony support.
At heart, we’re about great offices in great locations: offices that look professional and impressive, and offices that are functional – where everything works first time.
We don’t think of you as a tenant, we think of you as a partner. We’ll work with you to help your business thrive. You won’t have to worry about leases, maintenance, cleaning or security – we deal with all of that.
