Befimmo and Silversquare sign hybrid deal with Xerox in Ikaros Park!

25 January 2022
Xerox, leader in the field of desktop and production printing technologies, and its 130 employees began the year 2022 in new offices.

The company took possession of 45 shared offices in the Silversquare Zaventem coworking space. Between now and mid-March, a 184 m² showroom will be installed at number 15, Ikaroslaan belonging to Befimmo which will enable the company to present its latest innovations to customers. Thus this is a hybrid combination including a number of traditional offices and a coworking space.

“This project follows the strategic direction of the Xerox group, which consists of resizing its structures to adapt its premises to the modern agile work environment. In addition, the international context has disrupted a number of professional habits, something that has facilitated the transition to a flexible mode of working. Xerox is adapting itself to this context by basing itself on a pleasant environment that gives us flexibility and versatility, as well as by encouraging collaborative work. The objective was to achieve a good match between the image of the premises and that of the group: a dynamic and modern company resolutely facing the future. The tool proposed by Befimmo and Silversquare is a good reflection of this, bringing together all the elements we were looking for”, observes François Bourzeix, President, France, Belgium & Luxembourg at Xerox.

“The signing of this lease confirms the interest of companies in hybrid workspace solutions. The work world is constantly evolving, and the evolution of the needs of companies calls for an adequate response. With our subsidiary Silversquare, we can provide this answer, this evolution toward mixed work environments, centred on collaboration and the human factor”, notes Cédric Mali, Chief Commercial Officer at Befimmo.

Alexandre Ponchon, co-founder of Silversquare: “We are extremely proud and happy that a leading international technology player like Xerox chose the combination of Silversquare and Befimmo for their new workplace. They opted for a hybrid offer that is synonymous with flexibility and are not underestimating the importance of the offices as meeting places. We wish them great success in their future ventures”.

Moreover, existing leases for a surface area of nearly 8,000 m² were renewed, giving Ikaros Park a current occupancy rate of 85%.
