Staff at the shared office space have been working hard to clear up the damage.
Police are investigating after an office was destroyed due a driver smashing through the building.
Staff at the office block in Tythe Farm in Wyboston have said that it is a "miracle" that no-one was hurt, after a Vauxhall Corsa came crashing through the way, wiping out most of the desks.
The accident happened just after 9pm on Saturday night (February 22).
Police have said that they have been unable to locate the driver of the vehicle.

The car reportedly drove through the concrete bollards which separate the bollards from the road, losing control and then driving through the office building.
The office, which is shared by Evole Accounting, Shaun Prince Computer Services, Online Designs and the Transafe Network, was empty, but staff have said that they are usually in the office at the weekends and it is a "miracle" that no-one was hurt.

Saul Jeavons ,who works in the office said: "We have been working to get the office back up and running. If I am honest we were very lucky that none of us were in the office when it happened. Evole Accounting have been in there late for a couple of weekends doing tax returns and the car would have hit straight through the desk and ended up killing Simon and probably his wife Emma, who both work that side of the office. When we were shown the pictures I was pretty shocked, but the office is on a bend so it wasn't too surprising that this could have happened. Since the weekend we have all rallied together to get back into the office, with our landlord saying it could be properly fixed within two weeks."
Bedfordshire police have confirmed that they are investigating the incident.
A police spokesman said: "We were called at around 10:37pm on Saturday (22 February) to a report of a road traffic collision between a black Vauxhall Corsa and a barn at Tythe Farm, Staploe Road in Wyboston.
"We are investigating the circumstances of the collision as we have not been able to locate the occupants of the vehicle.
"Anyone with information, or who has dash cam footage of the area at that time, is asked to call 101 or use our online reporting tool quoting reference 398 of 22 February."
