Some businesses in traditional leases think moving to a hybrid model and consolidating office space is a good way of reducing overheads.
"But this can come unstuck," he says. "What if all the team want to be in on the same day, does the office have enough desks and meeting rooms? Because if the team is in, they want to connect in person.
"That's where flexible space has proven to be an attractive option. You get all the additional amenities that can be tricky to find in smaller offices such as location, meeting rooms, large board rooms, and overflow desks when you need them, and end of trip facilities like showers as well as lounge and breakout space without committing to a large space that sits empty half the time."
Moffett says flexible office space isn't just for small businesses, Generator has long been popular with global tech and enterprise companies and he is now seeing a growing trend toward larger New Zealand corporates adding flex space into their offices.
"As organisations look to navigate business post-Covid, flexible workspace can offer necessary space and amenities without the capital expenditure and lengthy lease terms of a traditional office - ideal for project teams or research and development."
Moffett says as an example Ernst & Young (EY) has taken a number of desks in Generator's new Wellington development as an extension of their space within the building.
