SJA will be joined on the day by leading industry professionals, including architecture firm Space Solutions and commercial property agent FG Burnett to provide guidance on operating within the local market. 

Shaun Murray, Director of SJA Property comments, “Aberdeen is filled with incredible buildings, but sadly a great deal of these lie vacant. It would be great to see a buzz around the city and for more people to work and shop within the area. We believe that the best way to achieve this is to make commercial office space as attainable as possible. 

With Commercial Multi Occupancy (CMO) being at the heart of their own strategy, SJA have drafted in commercial property expert and coach Jerry Alexander and SSAS Consultant Bryn Walker, who will provide an overview of the CMO process and how it can fit within your personal pension. 

Shaun continues, “As a start up business ourselves, we’ve met so many small businesses looking for traditional office space, but are put off by the lengthy contracts and risk associated with a traditional lease. CMO’s reduce the risk for the landlord and the tenant, so it’s a win-win really.”
