Plug & Play office space gives slough businesses a third option
‘Plug & play’ office space on the second floor of a new 100,000 sq ft office development by AshbyCapital and U+I in Slough gives businesses an alternative to traditional office space and to short-term flexible workspaces.
Offering a fully furnished and fitted office space of 6,900 sq ft, with immediate availability, The Future Works Instant (FWI) workspace includes client-facing and internal meeting rooms, breakout areas, dedicated phone booths and a café-style tea point.
Tenants benefit from access to a 3,100 sq ft communal roof terrace with views of Windsor Castle; Wi-Fi connectivity; a ground-floor café; secure basement parking with electric car charging spaces; and extensive facilities for cyclists and runners include bicycle parking, changing rooms (with towel service), a drying room and smart vending machine.
In addition, Future Works’ Smart Spaces technology platform provides intelligent features like contactless access via smartphone from reception to office floor, energy monitoring and occupancy sensors, and a reception area display showing live building sustainability information.
The Future Works has a BREEAM environmental and sustainability rating of ‘Excellent’, the UK’s first Platinum AirScore rating for its indoor air quality, and is WiredCertified Platinum for its connectivity and digital infrastructure.
Tom Smithers, Property Director at AshbyCapital, said: “The pandemic has accelerated underlying trends towards flexibility and caused occupiers to reassess their property needs. This plug & play space offers a turnkey solution for businesses wanting space that meets the demands of a modern workforce. The fully kitted out office offers a workspace that suits everyone, with innovative floor and desk plans that can grow with your company.”
The Future Works is the first phase of a three-stage, £200 million investment in Slough that will ultimately create 360,000 sq ft of new office accommodation in the city.
