About The Workstation

The Workstation is a large and ever growing network of professional shared office sites for new and growing businesses based in and around Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Cambridgeshire.

Our Story

Our first milestone came way back in 1979, when John Palmer (FRICS) became a Senior Partner of Palmer, Mandley & Sparrow Estate agents in Radlett, beginning a long career in property. As the estate agency expanded, Dominic Palmer joined the team and headed up the commercial and residential portfolio.

With the growth of the company, new offices were acquired in the neighbouring towns of St. Albans, Chiswell Green and Borehamwood. Over time, the company diversified and began to specialise in renting out small commercial offices to local firms. And so The Workstation brand was established, bringing to the market a total of six managed business centres in and around Hertfordshire.

In 2013, Rupert Palmer, also a Chartered Surveyor, joined the team with experience in Construction Management, Development and Valuation. This has allowed the company to expand further and continue its strategic growth plan by acquiring more Managed / Serviced Offices and development sites.
