BE Offices launches corporate division

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.”
