BE says the new division – called BESpoke – will offer corporates
seeking flexible office space “an all-encompassing one-stop service”.
BESpoke will source suitable space, negotiate terms; design,
manage and implement the fit out and design and install an IT package. It will
continue to manage the property on behalf of the client for the entire length
of the lease or licence period.
It will directly lease properties from landlords and then
negotiate an appropriate flexible lease or licence for the corporate occupier.
In certain cases, BESpoke will lease more space than the client requires if it
is “the right building in the right location and meets all its needs”,
converting the surplus space into a BE serviced office.
Weinbrenn was previously a senior director at The Instant Group,
formerly Instant Offices, and has run its corporate solution development
business for the past two years.
David Saul, BE’s managing director and co-founder, said: “I
believe the creation of BESpoke is an industry first. It will be a real
game-changer for large corporate occupiers who need short term flexible space
tailor-made for their specific needs.
“For the first time major occupiers can turn to one provider to
source their entire flexible space needs that will include a complete design
and fit-out package aimed at reflecting a company’s own corporate identity.”
Weinbrenn added: “Having spent most of my working life in this
sector I recognised the need to eliminate as much hassle and stress as possible
for corporate flexible space occupiers by offering a virtual cradle to the
grave service. This will enable companies to source, occupy and leave offices
with the minimum of fuss.”
