Class B office rental
Premises in second-tier business centers are a good alternative to premium offices. Firstly, in terms of equipment, such objects may not be inferior to the upper class. Because according to the standard, they must meet 70% of the mandatory and 30% of additional requirements for rooms of the highest category. Secondly, for some types of business, locations outside the business center often play into the hands. And finally, the rental rate here is usually lower than in premium business centers.
Such objects are more often located outside the business district, and this single fact no longer entitles them to belong to the highest category. In the rest of the equipment, there may not be any differences. Also often the area of each floor of an office building is less than 500m². Agree, this factor has little effect on the success of a business. From what is really critical for the comfort of company employees, the following points stand out:
These nuances that do not allow reaching level A are more often associated with objective reasons. For example, a business center was designed when the requirements were not so strict and the concept of a class B or C office did not exist. It is possible that the building is not new, but simply underwent a major overhaul, and it is technically impossible to implement some of the mandatory points - to increase the floor area, add another elevator shaft or get a parking space in the adjacent area. It should be noted that there are a majority of such business centers in the capital's office real estate market, so even for reputable companies or representative offices of foreign firms in Ukraine, renting a B class office is a common occurrence.
A wide offer affects the formation of the rental rate, which, of course, is beneficial for tenants. In addition, this category of business centers is highly susceptible to market fluctuations: experience shows that the highest category and class C almost "do not fall". The first because of the limited supply, and the second, because there is nowhere below. Immediately, even a slight deterioration in the economic situation in the country significantly reduces the price per square meter, so renting a class B office when the market is “at the bottom” is a good investment in business development. The main thing is to conclude a profitable contract, with which we help our clients.
As already mentioned, the equipment of business centers in this category is almost as good as the premium class, and it is easier to attract staff in comfortable conditions.
This is another advantage for companies renting class B offices, because high-value employees, according to recruitment agencies, carefully study the conditions in which they will work. The applicant does not care much about the floor area or the waiting time for the elevator. All other things being equal, a talented employee always chooses an employer that offers comfortable conditions. The main thing is that the metro station is at least 2 km away, which is already unacceptable for the highest category. That is, a 20-minute walk to/from work does not bother young workers.
We will find a class B office that will meet your requirements. Moreover, you will not have to pay for the main service - everything has already been paid by the landlord. The list of additional services includes renovation of premises, development of design and creation of a layout of employees in the office. We also help with the move and agree on the terms of the lease agreement with the owner of the business center or the management company. Our task is to ensure that the lease of office B is as profitable as possible, and that agreements are concluded on clear, transparent terms for all interested parties.
