Office Space

Choosing an office to rent within the 3M BIC offers up lots of benefits for businesses, whether you’re looking for your first office to house your new start-up or need a larger office space to accommodate your growing team.

Designed to be flexible, our office space for hire can flex with your business and is the perfect base for growth-orientated and/or knowledge-intensive businesses, situated within a modern, secure and accessible building and well-located for both Leeds and Manchester.


We have 26 offices, as well as co-working facilities with hot desks for start-ups and small companies.

Prices start from £450 + VAT per month for a starter office and up to approx. £1,900 + VAT per month for a larger space for 10-15 people.

Our unique combined office and lab spaces remove the need for two separate rooms.  Connected through an adjoining door, businesses can research in the laboratory and record their findings immediately next door in the office.

For small businesses not wanting to commit to a fully serviced office, for a £200 + VAT annual membership fee, you can register your business at the 3M BIC. For those wanting hot desks, post delivered and/or calls answered by reception, these services are available at an extra monthly cost.

To view all of our available offices & labs please visit our Available Space page.
