The newly renovated centre in H1, The Hill of Rubislaw building, houses an open plan reception, business hub facilities, suites in various sizes, and an on-site café.

It also includes superfast broadband, 24-hour access, car and bicycle parking, meeting rooms and a business support services team.

This marks the company’s second centre in Aberdeen, joining its existing Queen’s Road site, and its fifth in Scotland, seeing the amount of flexible office space north of the Border increasing at a faster rate than the UK average.

Chief executive Steve Jude said: “Our most recent Citibase Business Confidence Index revealed that 71 per cent of Scottish SMEs prefer office contract lengths of less than three years, which is clear evidence that the flexible office revolution is gaining serious momentum in Scotland.

“Citibase is committed to providing Scottish SMEs with one of the best flexible office hubs in the city as demand continues to soar.”
