West London is the perfect location for your business to take up residence in a flexible office space. Future Squared works with a number of landlords across the area, meaning we have a vast portfolio of flexible office space to rent in West London. There are more than 1.4 million people in this part of London, making it a thriving area bursting with business opportunity, but with Future Squared, you don’t need to worry about paying traditional West London office lease prices.
We work directly with landlords to provide cost-effective flexible office solutions tailored to your business. This is not only cheaper than a leased property, but it’s also more suited to growing businesses who are on the up. Through Future Squared, you and your clients can take advantage of the world-class transport links and diverse workforce, but at a more affordable price.
Serviced Office Space in West London
Serviced office space is one of our most popular solutions. It offers flexible contracts that can be extended as and when is necessary. Fully fitted out with desks, chairs, high-speed Wi-Fi, and everything else you could want, you can move into a serviced workspace quickly, making it an ideal option for those who want to dive right into West London business. What’s more, serviced offices can accommodate two to 200 people, making them viable for almost every office-based business.
Opting for a serviced office is beneficial not just for the flexibility it offers, but because it’s an easy, all-in-one solution that makes running a business and paying for commercial space easy. As standard, serviced office spaces charge one monthly fee that includes rent, utilities, business rates, insurance, security, and front of house services. You also opt to have printer access and call handling added to your monthly fee. These workspaces are usually priced by the desk, meaning that you only need to pay for the amount of space you actually need.
These self-contained private offices may also have access to communal meeting rooms, phone booths, and break-out areas that are shared with other businesses in the building. Less communal than a coworking space, these are nonetheless more sociable than your standard traditional office.
Semi Serviced Office Space
Semi-serviced offices are private offices similar to serviced offices, but there are fewer bells and whistles. They’re ideal for businesses who don’t require front of house services, making them cheaper by default.
When you opt for a semi-serviced office, you will still pay one monthly fee, but it won’t cover secretarial services like post management. There will also be no reception area, meaning you simply walk right into the office. If you’re not in a client-facing business or don’t require a professional reception area, these private offices may work well for you.
West London Coworking Office Space to Rent
If you’re looking for a West London location to base your start-up business from, we have a wide range of fantastic coworking spaces that could be ideal. Coworking space is shared, meaning you’ll be in a large, open-plan office alongside other similar-sized businesses operating in the area. This could prove to be invaluable because you’ll have the opportunity to network and build connections without having to leave your workspace to do so. It's no surprise that coworking is so popular with entrepreneurs and startups who are interested in building connections and collaborating with others!
Coworking involves either hot desking or permanent desking. Hot desking means you pay for each desk you need, but you don’t have a set desk and can move around every day. Permanent desking is the opposite and involves still working in a large space, but you’ll have your own dedicated desk. Coworking spaces often also have meeting rooms that can be booked out when you need a private space or somewhere to get the whole team together.
While many coworking spaces are very flexible and operate 24/7, it’s important to note that you may be restricted with working times in other coworking spaces. For example, you may only have access on weekdays between the hours of 9am and 5pm. If this suits you, coworking is one of the cheapest ways to get an office in West London.
Managed Office Space West London
Managed office spaces combine the best of both serviced and traditional leased offices. If company branding is important for your office space, managed workspaces are the way to go because they give you the freedom to decorate your space and complete a full fit-out bespoke to you. This is similar to leased offices, but the way the office is run mimics serviced offices because the provider still handles all the workspace's cleaning, maintenance, and more.
You will pay one monthly bill that includes the cost of the fit-out, rent, business rates, insurance, utilities, and everything else included in a serviced office. It's one of the easiest ways to enjoy all the benefits of your own private office while still keeping it budget-friendly and hassle-free.
Virtual Office Space West London
West London is a desirable business location, but not everyone is looking to return to a physical office. If this applies to you, consider paying for a virtual office. This will give you a West London address for your post to go to and for your company to be registered to, but you can remain working remotely.
Virtual offices are a cheap way to enjoy all the benefits of a prestigious London business address without the expense or hassle of actually renting the space. Furthermore, some virtual office memberships also offer discounted access to meeting rooms and event spaces in the building -- ideal for teams who occasionally need to all get together in one space.
