Glasgow provides a range of office types and solutions that suit companies from a diverse range of industries. With a number of new-build Grade A office developments in the pipeline, the supply of office space is expected to increase. This in turn will help to keep prices competitive.
The area around the main railway station in central Glasgow is ideal for companies looking to move into the city, to allow for quick access to Edinburgh and the south.
Prices currently range from £250 – £300 per person, per month for serviced offices in central Glasgow, depending on exact location and requirements. For companies looking for cheaper space, areas such as Paisley and Hamilton on the outskirts of Glasgow can be rented for around £180 - £200 per person, per month. When looking at serviced offices keep in mind that these costs usually cover a variety of amenities such as meeting rooms and Internet, and as such can offer great value for money.
We often receive a lot of enquiries for smaller office spaces in Glasgow. This is due to the fact that while most companies will not have their headquarters in the city, it is a very popular city to set up a secondary office. Having said this, Instant are able to accommodate most enquiries, from one person through to 100 or more depending on the specifics.
Why choose Glasgow?
While Glasgow used to lag behind Edinburgh, which has always been seen as the centre of the Scottish financial sector, it has now moved level with the capital as the country’s largest financial centre. Combined with a diverse economy, good transport links, comparatively cheaper rental prices than the capital and a wide range of cultural activities to enjoy, Glasgow is a great place to be for both work and pleasure.
