OFFICE

Depreciation and obsolescence affect performance as occupier’s needs have changed and flexibility of layout and services has become the key issue. Occupiers require a “best in class” office building with a preference for a single occupation. This includes good IT connectivity, VRF air conditioning, LED lighting with PIR controls, modern ceiling finishes, attractive entrance lobby, anti-static carpeting, open plan offices providing flexibility, new w.c.facilities, redecoration throughout and adequate dedicated car parking spaces. Some business parks are modern and well presented. Nevertheless, sustainability issues are a challenge for this sector.
