Bruntwood increases serviced office space in Deansgate

Commercial property company Bruntwood is adding a new floor of serviced office space at Centurion House on Deansgate in Manchester city centre.

Bruntwood said the 5,000 sq ft space was previously occupied by the Guardian Media Group and it decided not to re-let the space on the same basis as the demand for serviced offices in the location is "exceptionally high".

Centurion House combines three floors of serviced office space alongside nine floors of conventional office space and ground floor meeting rooms.

Workstation at Centurion HouseBruntwood added that the decision will take its serviced office portfolio to 2,000 desks across 12 buildings covering Manchester, Knutsford, Cheadle, Warrington, Altrincham, Leeds, Liverpool and Birmingham.

Bruntwood said workstations are sold by the desk and prices start from £300 a month. This includes office furniture, telephone, broadband, business rates, service charge, cleaning, utilities and discounted meeting rooms.

Andrew Butterworth, Bruntwood's sales director, said: "Demand for our serviced offices has always been strong and this centre has been near to 100% occupied for the last six months, despite the fact that we added over 40 workstations only last May.

"The new floor will add another 70 workstations and represents a +47% increase in the size of this centre. Our fully integrated office buildings where our serviced and conventional office customers work side by side have proven very successful, particularly in the current climate. This is because we can offer customers the ability to take short term serviced office space and then move into longer term conventional offices within the same building without penalties."
