Sometimes a project or job will be awarded to you and your typical working environment just won’t cut it. But what options do you have when such a project comes in, that doesn’t involve renting or buying office space?

For many people, the ideal solution is a project office. If you haven’t heard of it, or you have but are looking for more information, keep reading.

Today we’ll be briefly exploring what a project office is, when people use them and how to determine if this is the right option for you.


What is a Project Office?

A project office is an office that is used for the duration of a project, on a project-by-project basis. With more companies embracing the Gig Economy and more people choosing to become freelancers the market for project work is growing & with it is the popularity of project offices.

It is being used by start-ups to get their ideas off the ground, business owners who need a more professional space and freelancers who need a collaborative working environment for a short amount of time.

Sometimes a project will be awarded to your business, and you’ll need to bring in other external team members or freelancers on a contractual or seasonal basis & the need for a bigger space arises. Other times, you really just need to knuckle down and get a project done in a timely manner.

No matter what your individual circumstances are, a project office could be just what you need to ensure your latest endeavour runs smoothly.


The Benefits of a Project Office

Let’s look at the benefits of project offices to get a better understanding of why so many people pick this option and see if it appeals to you & your needs.

  • Flexible contracts: When you make use of it you aren’t expected to commit to any long-term agreements or contracts. This is appealing to many as you aren’t contractually bound to any specific location for an extended amount of time.
  • Conducive business environment: Distractions are a known pain associated with working from home, coffee shops and other casual working environments. Using a project office minimizes external distractions and allows you to focus entirely on your project.
  • Equipped with everything you need: It is typically equipped with everything you’ll need to successfully complete your project. This includes essential furniture and equipment such as desks, chairs, computers, telephone lines & WiFi access.
  • Cost-effective: Making use of a project office is a far more cost-effective solution than renting permanent office space because you only pay for the space you’ll be using and the amenities you need.
