Wyboston Lakes, a 380-acre estate in Bedfordshire has planning permission to add 11,000 square feet of extra space to its existing serviced office facilities and is launching Landing Pad, offering serviced offices, branded space and co-working options.
Wyboston Lakes is well known as a resort close to the A1 and A14 comprising two residential conference and training centres, a four-star hotel, spa, 18-hole golf course, restaurants, bars and nature reserve. It currently also has 60,000 square feet of existing serviced office and leased space for businesses.
The principle serviced office building now has planning permission and funding to add 11,000 square feet of new space. This can be divided up into units that suit the individual tenant, available on flexible monthly terms, and in an environment that can encompass break-out areas, hot-desking, dining and social facilities and a host of booths, pods and semi-enclosed spaces that lend themselves perfectly to a modern and flexible way of working.
Branded training spaces are provided to long-term partners for bespoke training needs, with space that is clearly branded with a business’s own identity but run and managed by the resort team. Wyboston Lakes is actively looking for an additional partner to take some available space.
Work to create the new co-working space will start in November as part of a refurbishment of the hotel. The co-working space is expected to be ready by March 2022.
Landing Pad is designed to give companies the style of space they need, whether that is a serviced office, branded space or a co-working space, and to adapt as their needs change. Adaptability is the essence of the proposition.
Whether in serviced offices or training facilities, clients and delegates can take advantage of the flexibility of a site that can make additional space, dining facilities, or overnight accommodation available to suit individual needs quickly and cost-effectively.
Steve Jones, Managing Director of Wyboston Lakes, said: “The way businesses use space has changed recently, particularly since the pandemic. They want to be in control, they want to be able to change easily and they want to know that they are not tied into something that may not suit their needs in 12 months’ time. Landing Pad will give them options to take less space, or more space if they need it, combined with the benefits of access to the rest of the facilities available within the resort.
Steve added: “We’ve been planning these new developments for three years and expected to start last year, but now we are ready to move forward with a proposition that readily meets the needs of businesses today.”
