Business Open As Usual

When considering moving into a commercial or industrial property for the first or even second time, you will want to try and avoid London. Although our capital city is an extremely profitable part of the country and can open up a mass of opportunity when a business is built correctly.

But it could be a lot more beneficial to have a commercial or industrial property in Huntingdon, for example, as costs are a lot lower and with quick and direct access to London, you can still grow your business around London too.

Huntingdon industrial properties have grown in demand over recent years and this is because many businesses have caught onto the fact that costs are much lower than a London property but still have the flexibility of great transport links.

So, if you do decide to move your business into its first commercial property it is well worth considering one in Huntingdon or the local area to ensure that profits are maximise and outgoings are reduced. The same applies for businesses that are intending on relocating or moving out of their existing premises too. You could end up cutting your yearly outgoings by nearly half and improve on your incomings.

Of course, travel will need to be considered as it isn’t right in the middle of the capital but comparing property to London property, the numbers talk for themselves. When looking for the perfect property that is close to London but will not break the bank, you should look for properties in or around Huntingdon.

Business will be open as usual, but at a much lower cost.


It’s Time For Plan B

A new study has found that workers are less satisfied with open plan offices than closed off ones.

The same study, published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, also explained that open plan offices do not boost teamwork or interaction among colleagues.

Among the verbose spreading around the office, one gripe that every employee had about their working environment was the temperature. The study also found that half of the workers that work in an open plan environment were not satisfied with the lack of sound privacy.

This study was taken by the University of Sydney and was taken on the basis of over 40,000 surveys received on behalf of employers from the US, Finland, Canada and Australia.

If you are fed up with your open office in Bury St Edmunds then, it’s time to either re-shuffle or relocate. Bury St Edmunds offices range from traditional buildings to modern and contemporary offices in the centre of town, and as many are empty waiting for you to move in, you can create the perfect space to respect your employee’s opinions and preferences.

This is the perfect time to result to Plan B and get rid of that existing open plan office and move into a property that can be adapted to your departments and your business, without your employees worrying about lack of sound privacy.

Build your team in a new environment and allow them to boost their teamwork and moral in a closely-knitted space. Your new Plan B is an office in Bury St Edmunds.

Workplaces With A Difference

Do you get up and ready for work dreading the day ahead because of the terrible office environment, but love your job? It could be time for your company to take a leaf out of one of these company’s books.

The Slovenian Chamber of Commerce has created their business in an office that resembles a rainforest. With light beaming through like the sun and plants and trees looking healthy and urban, this office in Ljubljana is the perfect eco-friendly haven for its employees. We just feel sorry for the gardener.

We’re off to Madrid now to offices that are half submerged under a forest floor. Half of this office has been created with transparent acrylic and the other half has been built with insulated fibreglass. These two are combined to ensure natural light enters the offices and when the sun is out, the employees are shaded too.

This next office is very Green; literally. This grown up Tellytubbyland has grassy knolls and moss spread around the office which happens to be an eight-storey amusement arcade. This quirky, creative office has taken influence from a bowling alley and blended with the outdoors. It’s brilliant!

The UK’s turn now and we are right in the middle of the Capital. London’s Manchester Square has been recreated to look more like a gentlemen’s club than an office. Interior designers SHH have created an environment that you won’t even want to leave on a Friday afternoon; the weekend will start here!

If you like the sound of these offices, you could use them as your imagination for your office in Huntingdon and turn your plain office into one that your employees, your clients and you, love. Be creative and be proud of your office. Who said Huntingdon offices had to be like every other one of its kind?
