UBC is about to spend £1.3 million to fully refurbish its workspace in The Mille.

UBC operates flexible, fully serviced workspace over two floors at The Mille, 1000 Great West Road. Having secured a new 10-year lease with building landlord McKay Securities, UBC will now undergo a full refurbishment of its flexible workspace, totalling £1.3million, including the introduction of bespoke coworking space.

As part of the refurbishment, UBC will take a new floor (Floor 1) which is due for completion in April 2018. This level, plus UBC’s existing second floor, will undergo a complete refit over the next 6 months.

The renovation will transform UBC’s existing business centre at The Mille, which it has operated at a high occupancy level since 2012, into a high quality, contemporary business environment with beautifully designed private offices, collaborative workspace and market-leading IT connectivity.

Research studies such as Cushman & Wakefield’s coworking report (January 2018) show that demand for UK flexible workspace is continuing to grow in regional areas. Outlying London areas and Greater London boroughs, such as Hounslow, offer a prime opportunity for business owners to reduce the soaring cost of city centre workspace and attract talent through shorter and more affordable commutes.

UBCUK managing director Richard Johnson said: “We are delighted to have secured a long-term lease at The Mille for a further ten-year term. This commitment represents a significant investment to UBC and the building is an important part of the UBC serviced office portfolio.

“Our Brentford flexible workspace offering has always been in demand, but recent improvements in the building have certainly helped raise our profile here and we are very much looking forward to delivering our brand new premium quality space.”
