Tell us a few words about the collaboration between Hotspot and PlanRadar? How and why did the company choose to have offices at Hotspot Skyhub?
The first client that chose #HotspotSkyhub for its team in Romania was PlanRadar. REC was also #PlanRadar’s first local client, with a challenging and revealing project that confirmed the clear growth trend of the #Proptech sector. In addition, the transparency and flexibility of the offices developed by #REC convinced us to choose the space at #Skyhub for our team in Romania, being created to the highest quality standards.
It is a great symbiosis, and our mutual colleagues can confirm this aspect.
How is the team doing here?
Working in a pleasant environment is undoubtedly helpful to work better. The general environment is very pleasant, and the team is satisfied with it.
What are Skyhub’s facilities that are most useful and enjoyable for you in your business?
I believe the two premises I can think of are convenience and design.
The location is well connected to public transport and road infrastructure, very well-equipped and flexible office display, lobby area, meeting rooms, and a lot of useful tech features and facilities.
Designed by experienced professionals, Hotspot offers high ceilings, plenty of natural light and optimal climate control as well as great designer objects – and I would mention here the collaboration with Vitra for instance.
If you were to describe Hotspot Skyhub in three words, what would those be?
Hotspot for tech companies.
