The National Office Demand Index (ODI) records the change in enquiry over each quarter. As the first half of 2020 saw the emergence of Covid-19, we fully expected to see a decline in enquiries due to businesses holding off on any commercial property requirements.

In Q1 2020 we recorded almost 817,000sqm of office enquiry, which is the most amount of enquiry we have actually ever recorded according to the ODI data which trends back to 2009; in fact, it was 16% up on the amount of enquiry recorded in Q1 2019
