Q: Which industry has seen increased demand over the past 18 months?
A: The Serviced Office sector; and there’s no better example of this than Omnia Two in the heart of Sheffield’s professional district.
In 2009, Omnia Two’s building owners, disappointed with serviced office sales, and impressed by how Omnia One was performing on the same road, approached Omnia Offices Ltd and asked them to take over management of their business centre, which is over 6 floors, covering 30,000 sq ft.
Within just 3 months, from May to August 2009, Omnia Offices Ltd drove occupancy from 25% to 85%.Tenants come from a range of industry sectors, and are of all corporate shapes and sizes. An example is CarillionMouchel, a joint venture between Carillion plc and Mouchel Group plc, both worldwide support service and construction companies. They moved to Omnia in August 2009, needing medium term office space in the city to house their bid team for the Sheffield Highways Maintenance PFI project. Peter McLellan, Project Director of CarillionMouchel says: ‘For a dynamic organisation like ours, flexibility and the ability to locate staff quickly is paramount”.
On the other side of the size spectrum is recruitment business Consult Resolute. For business owner Ben, Omnia Two’s full range of admin support, telephone answering, call forwarding and message taking were the key deciding factors. Omnia Offices Customer Services Manager, Jackie McFall comments: “In the current climate, businesses needing office accommodation are less inclined to take on traditional leases. Serviced Offices give fixed costs and limit a businesses’ financial exposure.”
Unique amongst many of it’s competitors, Omnia Two has a relaxed, peaceful atmosphere, even though it’s located in the heart of Sheffield’s busy commercial district. And Omnia report growing demand for smaller offices. So much so, they have recently converted a further 9 offices to keep pace with demand.
