The second Polish showroom of DJI brand, of the area of 82 m2, shall be situated in Poznań. The showroom interior will be futuristic, to reflect the nature of the company’s products, which in accordance with the DJI’s philosophy merge the advanced technologies with dynamic design.

NAI Estate Fellows represented DJI in the process of negotiating the lease of another drones’ showroom in Poland. Rafał Misiak – the Negotiator of NAI Estate Fellows was responsible for the transaction.

When we choose the location, an important factor for us is the singularity of a given place.

The latter category includes models of such famous series as Phantom or Spark. Drones of DJI brand are successfully used to produce professional video materials for movies, but they are also applied in agriculture (watering of the fields), in rescue operations thanks to their thermal imaging cameras or to supervise developed infrastructure.

NAI Estate Fellows moves in PAGED Meble to Praga306!

A new showroom of PAGED Meble, one of the leading producers of furniture on the Polish market, is going to be established at the Grochowska Street, in PRAGA306 complex.

Rafał Misiak – the Negotiator of NAI Estate Fellows, was responsible for the accomplishment of this transaction on behalf of PAGED Meble.

Paged Group is an industrial and investment holding with more than 85-year history. The parent company of the Group, Paged S.A. with the seat in Warsaw, has been listed since 1996 on the regulated market of the Warsaw Stock Exchange. PAGED is one of the most recognised manufacturers of furniture and one of 200 largest enterprises in Poland. The new showroom is going to occupy more than 300 m2 of the ground floor of the building. It is assumed that the opening will take place in September 2017.

Co-working – a cost-effective workplace solution

Nowadays, thanks to the availability of modern technologies, a growing number of individuals decides to start their own economic activities. According to the information of the Central Statistical Office, around 300 thousand new companies are created every year; however, a significant part of them, as a result of high operating costs is discontinued. In such case, co-working may be a perfect solution.

For such new entrepreneurs, the lease of a typical office space may be non-cost effective. Several of them decides to work at home. While at the beginning it seems to be an advantageous solution, in the long run it triggers a lot of complications. Not everyone has got enough space at home to create an office, where it is easy to concentrate only on working. It is also difficult to provide an appropriate environment to meet the customers. Home-based work can also disturb the work-life balance and therefore the lease of office space by days or hours becomes more and more popular.

In Poland co-working started in 2013 and the first offices of that kind were located in Warsaw. A dynamic development of this sector made other regional towns offer office space in this form, which is also a reflection of a global co-working trend. We can observe a direct relation between the increase of entrepreneurship and the development of co-working, accompanied by an evolution in preferences and the needs of customers using this form of lease.

Co-working is a manner of office space lease addressed both to small companies that wish to reduce operating expenses, as well as those, whose nature of conducted business does not require a permanent office. Co-working offices are spaces, which host a few or more than ten individuals working at the same time. The entrepreneur decides on his own, whether he wants to lease a single work post or the entire office. The offices are provided with rest and refreshment facilities and they have got all necessary equipment needed at work.

The customers who decide to lease office space in the co-working formula appreciate the advantages of this solution, as sharing the office space is much more cost-effective than leasing an office on one’s own. Another advantage is that the users do not have to remember about several bills to be paid and their payment deadlines. The entrepreneurs are charged based on the actual working time or under a specific subscription and they deal with only one entity, which certainly is a very convenient solution.

Apart from the financial aspect, there are also other non-pecuniary benefits, like for instance networking. Co-working office is an incredibly varied environment, because it brings together people working in a great variety of sectors. It helps establish new contacts that allow generating measurable profits – in the same office one can meet both a talented graphic designer, as well as a software developer. Sharing an office with other business people gives the opportunity to start an interesting co-operation; it increases motivation and allows maintaining a non-routine approach to business. It should be emphasised that for individuals who prefer working on their own, to be able to focus entirely on their task, co-working ensures such possibility offering separate office modules. Adjustable office space provides the option for such kind of work. Co-working has become very popular and a constantly growing competition made companies offering co-working offices come up with increasingly flexible solutions and meet the requirements of customers providing a more extensive array of facilities. In several cases, it is not even necessary to sign a contract – the space and time are determined on an individual basis and the decision on the suspension of lease can be made a month in advance. If a customer decides to pay up-front for an extended period, he may count on additional bonuses, such as the possibility to use a conference room or a meeting room.

The majority of co-working offices provides also the service of a virtual office, which consists in rendering available the co-working office address to register one’s economic entity. The entrepreneur who starts his business may sign the contract with the co-working office and then use its address to register his company. The correspondence related to the company’s activities is directed to the co-working office, which is very convenient for those who stay outside their place of domicile or travel a lot.

But co-working is not only an excellent solution for business people – it is also a series of new possibilities for the owners of office buildings or post-industrial objects. The space of slightly older office buildings or tenement houses can embark on a completely new journey and the customers obtain the possibility to work in very convenient locations, on very flexible terms. The co-working lease allows the entrepreneurs to focus entirely on the development of their businesses and at the time the company gains the appropriate momentum, to switch to a serviced office.

LOSE YOUR KILOWATTS!

Between 22 and 26 May 2017 electronic waste will be collected as part of the Lose Your Kilowatts campaign following the joint initiative of real estate services firms Cushman & Wakefield, JLL, Knight Frank, NAI Estate Fellows, Savills, Skanska, Capital Park Group, and a waste removal company BYŚ. Proceeds from recycled e-waste will be donated to the “Przymierze – Ziemia Piska” Association.

It will be the fifth time that special bins for e-waste will be put out in 70 selected office and warehouse buildings and shopping centres across Warsaw. All the proceeds from recycled e-waste will be donated to the Rehabilitation, Education and Care Centre of the “Przymierze – Ziemia Piska” Association in Pisz. The Centre provides interdisciplinary support for disabled children and young people, and will use this year’s donation to build and fit out premises and rooms for work with its pupils.

Zuzanna Paciorkiewicz, Partner, Business Space Asset Services, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “By handing over useless or obsolete electronic devices we take care of both our immediate environment and our planet’s future. In addition to cyclical ecological campaigns, we spare no effort on various educational activities to raise awareness about risks of uncontrolled e-waste disposal and benefits of recycling.”

Łukasz Dreger, Key Account Manager, Knight Frank, said: “E-waste collection is organized every year in properties managed by all our campaign partners. Thanks to the large scale of the operation we give office building tenants an opportunity to get rid of electronic waste. In addition, we make companies and employees operating in various sectors aware that such waste should not go into an ordinary bin. As some office and warehouse buildings do not provide special bins for e-waste, this campaign presents an excellent opportunity to take part in it and to help others. As in previous years, we will donate monies from recycled waste to a charity. We would also like to invite everyone to look for partners and sponsors of the campaign who could provide cash or in-kind support for this year’s beneficiary.”

What can go into our bins?

  • Large electronic and electrical appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, dish washers, microwave ovens, air-conditioners, etc.;
  • Telephones, monitors, tablets, printers and computers;
  • Small electronic and electrical appliances such as irons, coffee machines, radios, power drills, electric train sets, game consoles, smoke detectors, thermostats, etc.;
  • Medical products such as radiotherapy and dialysis equipment.

Lighting products such as light bulbs and fluorescent lamps are excluded.

In 2016, more than ten tons of e-waste was collected in the Lose Your Kilowatts campaign. Last year’s proceeds from recycled e-waste and donations totalled PLN 9,500 and were all given to the Care and Therapy Centre “Smurfy” in Pisz.
