Renting out professional space can be daunting if you don’t know what to look out for. Here are some pointers that vary from space to space:
Conventional Office Rentals
As a rule thumb allow 50 – 60 sq ft per person*
Suited for larger business operations
Short term leases require 2 – 3 years minimum commitment
Serviced Office Rentals
Let by the desk
Choose from standard offices to executive suites
Expand or contract as your business grows or shrinks
Rolling contracts that are flexible
One monthly bill covers all associated services
Shared office Rentals
Monthly rolling contracts
Benefit from developed infrastructure & facilities already in place
All utilities & rates packaged in one monthly bill
Provides a more professional feel compared to a lone office
Can give the allusion of one bustling working environment
*This rule applies to all of the above

Westhill Business Park and Arnhall Business Park are the two major areas for professionally rented space. They house large office buildings, tech companies and large retail outlets from the likes of Tesco & Costco.

Dundee is 70 miles south and takes 1 hour 20 minutes to get to on the A90. Aberdeen Train Station is 7 miles east of Westhill and is the closest railway station. Getting there by car takes 20 minutes via Skene Road and King’s gate. It is the main arterial route for reaching Edinburgh, the south, Inverness and the north coast. The closest airport is Aberdeen Airport, located 4 miles north and just a 15 minute drive away.
There are a number of primary schools in the area as the population is mostly made up of families. The closest college is the University of Aberdeen, located 6 miles east of town in the heart of Old Aberdeen.
With it being so close to Aberdeen City Centre (5 miles), residents are more than likely to spend their nights out here, rather than at home.
