Wyboston Lakes Resort has secured planning permission to add 11,000 square feet of extra space to its existing serviced office facilities and is launching a landing pad, the resort announced.
The additional space for the 380-acre estate in Bedfordshire will offer serviced offices, branded space and coworking options.
Work to create the new co-working space will start in November as part of a refurbishment of the hotel, and the co-working space is expected to be ready by March 2022.
The 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”, said Wyboston Lakes Resort.
Reportedly, the new space can be divided up to encompass break-out areas, hot-desking, dining and social facilities and a host of booths, pods and semi-enclosed spaces that cater to a “modern and flexible way of working”.
It currently has 60,000 square feet of existing serviced office and leased space for businesses.
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.”
Jones 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.”
