Space is the last thing you need to be worrying about when dealing with the day-to-day trials of running a small business. With a hundred and one things to worry about before breakfast, being hampered by floor space limitations, location hangups or logistical roadblocks is frustrating.
Yet many small businesses struggle with these constraints. That’s why we believe in the value of a flexible, versatile working space. Flexspace business units can be offices, workshops, storage, stock rooms, call centres: we will set them up precisely the way you want them to be.
Even in the digital age, with most companies operating online, office space is still vital to the success of a typical SME. Geographical location affects everything from foot traffic to staffing levels, literally defining the limitations of any business.
Worse still, many businesses struggle along with their existing building without realising that a change of environment is not as expensive or disruptive as it may seem.
Flexspace managed workspaces operate on the twin concepts of versatility and utility, knowing that a company needs both room to grow and an optimised space to foster productivity.
With a variety of units across the country, such as major hubs in Liverpool, Milton Keynes and Swindon, our vision is a working space that lets businesses breathe, with room to expand as well.
The ability to grow and adapt quickly and easily is vital for the modern SME, whether it’s based in an office or industrial environment. That said, choosing the right location can sometimes feel as much an art as a science.
Typically, the most freedom is gained from a rental tenancy, but even those seeking the long-term security of a binding lease can plan for the future by selecting the right premises that allows you room to grow.
There’s a variety of ‘flavours’ when it comes to versatility, which is why we’re able to cater to self storage users, offer small workshops for rental and still provide commercial leases to small businesses.
The Milton Keynes Flexspace in the thriving Crownhill Business Area offers several units which can be adapted and personalised to the needs of expanding companies seeking to capitalise on that location.
Our Crawley space is a stone’s throw from Gatwick, with units as compact as 790 square feet which would be ideal for self storage.
Our Liverpool hub at Knowsley has units ranging from 5,000 square feet to 24,000 and more, giving access to major trade links for both small businesses and sole traders. These include the A580 linking Manchester and Liverpool, the M6, M57 and more, not to mention rail links just 2 miles away.
The key to flexibility is choice, which for us includes terms, unit types, locations and facilities, as well as floor size. Not every tenant can commit to a long lease. An industrial building may not suit a call centre. Some companies need special facilities to be fully effective.
Our answer to these needs and more is to create a hub space with a variety of units, able to adapt to each new tenancy, instead of just offering a carbon-copy industrial park with endless identical units. No two businesses are alike, so why should their working environments be identical?
There’s no doubt that a move to this kind of location can not only free your business of constraints like floor space limitations, but also open new doors which let your location work for you, providing a spur to growth and possible expansion.
Every business needs room in order to grow, so we’re proud to offer a variety of spaces to small businesses to take the next step in their development.

Flexspace have helped me turn my little dream into a profitable reality! Being a small business owner looking for premises can sometimes be daunting but Loraine and the Flexspace team helped me with every step in finding the perfect solution for my business and I couldn’t be more grateful.
The team go above and beyond to look after their tenants and nothing is every too much trouble. Premises are clean, well maintained and I always feel extremely safe when I’m at work even on those dark winter nights! I have highly recommended Flexspace to fellow business owners – a hidden gem in Peterborough!
Our offices in Blackpool are easily accessible for the people we support, some of whom are in wheelchairs, there is a ramp to the entrance door and disabled facilities. Our offices are nicely decorated, comfortable and affordable.
Our Area Manager is very helpful and readily available should we have any queries or problems. The public areas are kept clean, safe and presentable. She goes over and above the call of duty for the clients.
I have enjoyed renting from Flexspace for the last 3 years and hopefully will be there for a good few years to come. Found the staff very helpful and easy to get on with.
Excellent service, the Centre team are happy to assist with meeting rooms at short notice. They ensure that repairs are carried out quickly. I needed several new sockets in my room and these were provided very quickly with no inconvenience to myself.
The staff are friendly, professional and knowledgeable and nothing is ever a problem.
Flexspace Dunfermline has had a big impact on the growth of my business over the last 3 years. Offering the ability to offer in-house training to clients with the use of the meeting room facilities. The team always ensure that the rooms are set up to the exact requirements I need to deliver the training to my clients. From equipment set up to the supply of refreshments to my delegates.
Having a dedicated team onsite that are always on hand to assist with anything from reception to administration is a real benefit to my business. The staff are always very approachable and nothing is ever too much for them when I ask for their assistance.
RDM Group has occupied buildings on the Bilton Industrial Estate for over 22 years and we have seen many owners in our time. In 2007 ‘Flexspace’ acquired the estate and through their resident manager, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the overall operation of the estate together with a continual investment and improvement program into the buildings, security and facilities which makes the estate an extremely good place for our company to be located.
Big thanks to you and Alan for your efficient handling of the whole process.
Many thanks for your support in our move into new office space, everything has been really smooth and easy even down to ensuring locks were changed and secure.
The facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean throughout and it’s so helpful for us to have access to additional rooms for booking for training events when we need it. We are so glad we made the move into a really pleasant and well maintained working environment.
