Let Your Business Grow at Skene Business Centres

The climate of doing business in Aberdeen is constantly shifting, changing and developing. Flexible working, remote working, low overheads and becoming as lean and efficient as possible is the modern approach.

Skene Business Centres are known for their quality business space in Aberdeen city centre. We spotted that whilst traditional offices, where people work 9-5, will always have their place, we put forward a fresher offering.

Skene Business Centres are the most experienced providers of Serviced OfficesVirtual Offices and Meeting Rooms in Aberdeen. First off, we’re fast – within 24 hours you can move in, get online and have calls answered in your company name. Our aim is to get your business off the ground and supported as quickly as possible. And we don’t stop – your office is secure, with protected access every single day of the year – that’s 24/7/365.

The offices themselves deliver. Minimalist, contemporary environments with natural tones and modern ergonomic furniture. Skene Business Centres provide fully furnished equipped offices, with kitchen facilities. Meeting rooms, business lounges and break-out areas are also available to book as required. Presentation equipment and a colour printer, scanner, copier and fax machine are at your disposal. From hot-desking facilities to co-working spaces you can establish the modern office that works for your business.

Day to day logistics are taken care of such as reception, switchboard, post, maintenance and housekeeping services. On a practical level we offer IP and digital switchboards with DDI numbers and voicemail messaging systems with a dedicated leased line internet connection. You, your staff and guests won’t stress about city centre parking, as private car parking is provided on site at our Queen’s Gardens and Rubislaw Den North sites, and secure bike racks are available for those using pedal power. Those who do jog or cycle to work, or perhaps exercise at lunchtime, can make use of the shower facilities/bathrooms available. Then on a fresher note, some air and greenery always help the grey cells function, so make the most of our private and secluded gardens with outdoor furniture and discreet smoking shelters.

When pricing things up bear in mind that we can take care of business rates, utilities, repairs, building insurance, security systems (door entry, fire alarm and intruder systems), signage (entrance, car park, directory and office), refuse collection, property management as well as simple things like providing coffee, tea, sugar, milk and drinking water. It all adds up and lets you concentrate on your business rather than sweating the small stuff.

Skene Business Centres are great places to bring people together. We can provide interview rooms for two or three people, meeting rooms for up to eight people, boardrooms for a maximum of eighteen people, and conference rooms for ten to ninety delegates. This is a professional facility for anyone using our business centres but it can also work extremely well for business leaders operating out of office space elsewhere: bringing your employees to a Skene Business Centre meeting room can reap rewards as meeting offsite and taking employees out of their everyday surroundings can bring a fresh perspective to things and shake up the status quo, and it can provide a discreet space for interviews, and confidential or difficult conversations.

Flexibility is another of our key strengths. It’s possible to book office space for one hour, one day, one week or one year. We offer flexible terms within simple contracts, and it’s easy to expand and contract the space you require as your business grows. No capital investment is required and there are minimal start-up costs.

Another key benefit are the excellent locations of each Skene Business Centre. All three (Rosemount Viaduct, Queen’s Gardens and Rubislaw Den North) are based in central Aberdeen in the buzz of the city. Close to rail, ferry and air transport links, your company will be in good company, in the heart of the Granite City’s active business environment.

  4. This is great for people who need office space within a small period of time. It’s good to know that there are businesses out there like Skene.

      And naturally we’ve seen small businesses, booking short periods of time, blossom and grow. A pleasure to help them on their journey.

  5. In a previous job we used these centres a lot for meetings and training, it’s an excellent resource

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      Sometimes getting out of your familiar office space for meetings and training sessions makes a huge difference. People can slip into roles, or ways of thinking, and sometimes it helps to shake that up a bit. Glad to hear you find it useful.

      Light, air, clean lines, good facilities, all help the grey cells deliver great ideas, concepts and solutions.

  9. These business spaces sound ideal for people who need short notice / flexible times! x

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      We can deliver quickly and that can make all the difference.

  10. Hannah says:

    Something i’m thinking about when I start working from home. Just to get me out the house mainly!

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      I think you always make good contacts at these centres and it gets you out of the house, and offers a professional space for you to hold meetings or just to get you in the zone.

  11. Kara says:

    Business centres and hubs are great, especially if you work alone as it means you can meet other people and get help if you need too

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      Not having to worry about IT issues is always a blessing. And yes, you can’t underestimate the social aspect to business. A potentially great networking opportunity too.

  12. Lisa says:

    Sounds like a great option for new businesses

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      We cater to all types of businesses but for new starts it allows them to take the facilities they need when they need them and change it up as they progress.

  13. Sarah says:

    when I was working we used to use centres like these for our home based staff. so useful to have facilities like this

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      We’ve really thought through the offering to make it as quick, efficient and professional as possible so it’s great to hear that you rate and value facilities like this.

  14. Stephanie says:

    Great to have those facilities for a business centre, and so much flexibility

      It’s a strong mix which works exceptionally well.
