When it comes to office space, there are numerous factors that influence the cost. These factors include the location of the office, the quality and standard of the building’s fit out, and the amount of space required for you and your team. As you’d expect, you’ll pay more in a desirable location with a premium address and high-quality fitout.
If you need flexible office space for 100 people or less, Australia has thousands of turnkey private offices in every major city and many small towns across all states.
As a business, you have a plethora of options, ranging from fully-managed office operators like Regus and Servcorp to the new kids on the block like WeWork, Regus (owned by IWG), JustCo, and Australian-owned Altitude, Hub Australia, and Workspace365, to name a few. These fully managed operators provide everything you need at a single monthly price, from desks and chairs to printing and amenities like showers and bike racks, with the option to add more desks or downsize the space as needed.
