CBRE say that '2021 was a year that exceeded expectations', with the office sector experiencing a significant recovery in capital values following the decline sustained during the pandemic. They note that 'although neither [industrial and commercial] sector has yet to reach their pre-pandemic values, the milestone is close for the office sector'. All property values have surpassed the levels that were recorded in February 2020 (the start of the pandemic), by 5.5%.
What these numbers show, is that the idea of 'the office' isn't going anywhere anytime soon. While some predicted the end of the office in favour of permanent home working, statistics have shown that people are keen to return. The difference is that the layout of the workplace may be different – moving from the 5-day-a-week setup to more flexible, hybrid or agile working arrangements.
Ultimately, it's finding the right balance with an office refurbishment that will be key; if a business can understand which arrangements best suit their workforce, they will be able to produce an environment that will create the best products.
So, whether you're a business looking to rent an office or a property owner seeking to let, it's well worth your while in thinking about ways to get the best value from your investment – and this is where we can help.
