North-east property development and office leasing company, Waterloo Quay Properties, has introduced a new way of working at its bespoke range of commercial office developments at Aberdeen harbour.
With work often getting in the way of personal life, Waterloo Quay Properties realise that its clients require much more than straightforward office space. Today, it is about bringing life to work and streamlining individuals employment with every day tasks, such as socialising and working out at the gym, preferably without having to travel far or pay over the odds for those ‘nice to have’ extras.
This is why Waterloo Quay has introduced its brand new membership scheme, Quay Life. Quay Life is an enhancement of its current service offering, combined with added benefits, yet with a smaller financial commitment. It is a month-by-month membership scheme with no required minimum contract, allowing clients to come and go as they please without long term financial commitments.
The Quay Life membership card depending on the level of membership secured will allow them 24/7 secure access to a range of office types, including spacious shared offices, fully equipped hot desks, virtual offices or simply a PO box to use. This in addition to the standard Waterloo Quay services – manned reception areas, spacious meeting and conference rooms with break-out zones, franked mailing service and mail forwarding, courier drop-off and collection service, high-speed broadband, printing, photocopying and scanning facilities with an admin support team on hand to help, a courtesy shuttle bus to and from Aberdeen train/bus terminals and secure surface and multi-storey parking - can fulfil any office requirements all under a tailored membership package.
But it doesn’t stop there, with Quay Life there is still so much more. The Quay Life membership pass also allows entry to Quay Fitness, the firm’s fully equipped, state-of-the-art gymnasium, with squash courts and regular fitness classes, as well as Caboose in the Courtyard, its vibrant café with on-site catering facilities. With soft music and comfortable seating areas set in a bright, contemporary environment, Caboose is the ideal spot for socialising, holding business meetings or winding down as the day ends. These pleasant added extras of Quay Life combined with the friendly buzz around the offices certainly beats working from home!
Managing director, Anna-Marie Eardley, said: “Very few people realise the amount of space we have acquired down here at the harbour and how we have managed to transform it into a fantastic, user-friendly working environment, which is only a stones throw away from the city centre. With more than 160,000 square feet of grade ‘A’ office space, we have introduced not just generic work facilities, but leisure services too, such as Caboose and QuayFitness for our clients to make use of in their own time, while avoiding rush hour traffic.
“The majority of our tenants are businesses operating in the offshore and marine sectors, so cost-efficiency is a top priority, particularly during these difficult times. Our tenants need to know that they have high quality office space with enhanced facilities, at an affordable price without committing to a long-term lease. The new membership scheme will allow our clients to come and go as they please. It’s also a great opportunity for those currently working alone at home, to get back into an office environment and enjoy the ‘buzz’ - Waterloo Quay is a real business community.”
Waterloo Quay Properties, which overlooks Victoria Dock, comprises of Merchants House, Pioneer House, Navigator House, Voyager House, Nautilus House, Provender House, Ocean Spirit House, the Courtyard, Atlantic House and the newly completed Horizons House.
