One remote office workspace company has put together an innovative new iterative office configuration system, that promises to be a very good fit for SME businesses looking for modern premises.
Dexus has launched SuiteX, an innovative evolution of its suite strategy that aims to satisfy the growing customer demand for flexibility.
Developed in collaboration with award-winning architectural firm, BVN, SuiteX is a pilot initiative in Sydney. The initiative sees an entire floor converted into ten flexible suites with capacity to accommodate six to twenty people, or more when suites are combined.
Dexus head of office and industrial leasing, Chris Hynes, said SuiteX is the next step in evolving Dexus’ suite strategy, providing flexibility in space and tenure.
“It meets a need for quality workspace which doesn’t require the need for a long-term commitment,” he said.
“The offer is a natural extension of our commitment to partner with our customers throughout each step of their property journey.”
Mr Hynes said SuiteX provides customers with the flexibility to align their space needs with their business needs, avoiding “costly fitouts, complex contracts or long terms”.
“With a space ratio that is considerably less compact compared to co-working or serviced office spaces, SuiteX provides the comfort and privacy of traditional office space with the community and services of co-working.
Flexibility is ensured through a unique turnkey solution enabled by a modular design. A one-metre grid system and demountable inter-tenancy walls enable customers to quickly expand or contract their space.”
Mr Hynes said the new initiative’s flexible lease terms start from as short as six months to two years.
He said after the delivery of the pilot site, Dexus will explore how the concept can be implemented in other assets across the country.
