A GIBRALTAR real estate expert is proposing a ‘revolutionary’ solution to the lack of office space.

Mike Nicholls, managing director of Chesterton, has revealed his estate agents now encourages staff to work from home.

The company took the decision after failing to find larger premises in Ocean Village for the past two years.

“Our biggest constraint to growth is scarcity of land and space,” Nicholls told the Olive Press.

“We have two members of staff who are based at home but come in for meetings when required.

“They are happier and I am happy because I don’t have to pay for the desk space.

“It’s a model increasingly common in the UK and it made me think about the benefit to Gibraltar if flexible working patterns were encouraged here as well.”

Nicholls added that the Gibraltar administrative infrastructure should encourage home working in the same manner as it is encouraged in the UK.

“We may find that we need less new construction if we use existing building space more efficiently,” he said.
