The health and safety of our staff, clients and visitors is our top priority. Skene Business Centres therefore comply with government guidance on managing the risk of infection from COVID-19. Accordingly, we have updated our risk assessment and will continue to review it on a regular basis. We understand that for many of our clients, access to their office/workspace is essential so please find below some of the measures we have introduced to maintain a safe environment.


  • Clear signage and guidance is displayed to highlight that everyone is required to keep a 2 metre distance from others.
  • We support and provide guidance to clients to adhere to the 2 metre rule in their own offices.
  • Where possible, one way systems have been introduced, and passing places have been marked by tape.
  • Furniture has been removed to accommodate the 2 metre rule in communal spaces, waiting areas and meeting rooms.
  • A one in and one out system has been adopted by clients for all face-to-face appointments, and access is only granted for pre-booked appointments.
  • A one person only rule is enforced in all kitchen and toilet facilities.
  • Screens have been installed at our reception areas.
  • None of our buildings have lifts.
  • The volume and traffic of people within our buildings is relatively low.


  • Our cleaners have been issued with enhanced cleaning guidelines, products and PPE.
  • Reception staff regularly conduct disinfecting of high touch points.
  • We have our own fogging machine with communal and higher traffic areas receiving an anti-viral disinfectant fog weekly. We also conduct fogging for client offices on request.
  • Toilets with handwashing facilities are available in all sections or floors of our buildings.
  • Hand sanitising stations are installed at all entry/exit doors to the buildings with additional stations in high traffic areas.
  • Cleaning products and disposable paper towels are provided in all shared spaces such as kitchens and toilets.
  • Instructions on cleaning before and after use are displayed alongside a handwashing reminder.


  • Face coverings are mandatory in all communal areas.
  • We do not have ventilation systems but windows in all offices can be opened for a clean air supply and heating is controlled in the individual office.
  • Building guidelines have been issued to clients since May 2020, and updates sent when necessary.

Skene Business Centres @SBCAberdeen
I recently moved into SBC 7 Queen's Garden and was worried about the move and time to get up and running. My fears were groundless as I had a good briefing with details of parking, assistance up the 2 flights of stairs (at least I know I wasn't as unfit as i thought). IT was literally plug and play (I didn't need any of my boxes) and I was settled in within a day including all the briefings. A very professional team and services.
ANS Energy
A fantastic service with professional, friendly and genuine people. Bit of a hidden gem which I would recommend to anyone; especially start-ups looking for a cost-effective office solution.
GoLearn Global
Excellent facilities & a professional welcome for our visitors when entering the building. First impressions matter in business and 7 Queen’s Gardens certainly provides that for our company. One of the many benefits is the networking encouraged within the Business Centre. A very convivial working environment.

Cavitas Energy has been a customer of Skene Business Centre, based at 23 Rubislaw Den North, since June 2018. We would have no hesitation in recommending them as a superb vendor of serviced offices.
Cavitas Energy
We are a small business that is thriving within our industry however noticed a severe drop with incoming work requests. This was due to a fault with our previous virtual office providers. After speaking with the management of Skene we are very impressed with the professional but friendly approach and decided to make the switch. I cannot fault the service or staff members in any way. From the very first day that our service went live at 23 Rubislaw Den North we experienced a sharp increase of incoming work requests via telephone. The only thoughts I have regarding Skene is that we should have switched to you long ago!
