With twelve serviced office operators to choose from, Reading has no shortage of serviced office space within the town centre and surrounding area. Close competition between providers has produced some great deals for companies considering a move to the area and the town has become a popular business location in recent years. Home to the headquarters of a number of major British companies, as well as numerous foreign multinationals, Reading is a particular favourite with the IT industry with big label names such as Microsoft, Oracle, Cisco and Yell.com all choosing to move to the area.
Several of Reading’s larger corporations, including the UK headquarters of Microsoft, ING Direct, SGI and BG Group, can be found at the popular Thames Valley Business Park. Located to the East of the town centre, and with ready road links to the A329 providing easy access to junction 10 of the M4 motorway, Regus are currently offering some top quality serviced accommodation at the idyllic business park at their property Regus House. These modern, contemporary and spacious offices are set in an eighty acre nature reserve, close to the River Thames. There is also a David Lloyd Fitness Centre located on the park, ideal for a lunch time or after work workout.
If your business requires a central location then Reading town centre offers various serviced office solutions. Providers Regus, BE Group, ECC and Avanta are all based in the centre with accommodation ranging from Regus’ top quality property at Forbury Square to the economical offering of providers ECC on Kings Road, this option benefits from on site parking provisions. In terms of facilities, the town centre boasts the popular leisure complex, The Oracle, where a wide range of over 90 top name shops, as well as over 25 stylish restaurants, cafés and bars, and a ten screen Vue cinema, can be found. Reading also sits on the direct Waterloo line, from here you can arrive in central London at best in just over an hour and at worse within an hour and a half.
A third, sought after business location is the idyllic Green Park area, offering a tranquil working environment, the park is home to Longwater lake which provides a little natural sanctuary for lunch time wanderers. Here leading serviced office providers MWB and Regus offer top of the range contemporary office accommodation within a sympathetically conserved natural setting.
Finally if you want to stretch a bit further going towards Newbury, then the area of Theale also has a great selection of serviced offices to choose from. Asmec, with a superb purpose built centre, Abbey business centres and Regus make up a trio of buildings all with high spec office space.
In keeping with the great number of large IT companies which populate the Reading commercial office market, most of the serviced offices here are managed by larger multinational operators. However a couple of some smaller independents can be found such as Bucknell Brothers on Pingewood Business Estate and Synegis on Crockhamwell Road in the Woodley area who offer services with perhaps a more one-on-one feel, ideal for smaller companies and business start ups.
