In the past prebuilt office space was often thought of as the poor relation to custom designed premises, with only low-end companies who could not afford their own building signing up to lease the space.
But things have come a long way since then, according to the New York Times, and these days firms including solicitors, accountants and media companies are being attracted to the ease and speed of moving into an office which is already set up for them.
A huge improvement in design, size and quality may have something to do with this shift, the news provider said.
Architect Scott Spector added: “Landlords are much more attentive to good, unique design versus the typical prebuilds of five to ten years ago. These offices have been fully engineered to the hilt.”
In the UK all of the office space which is being let out to companies has been pre-built. It varies in size and modern appearance.
