Finding Your Perfect Office Space
For most businesses, the need to find office space or refurbish existing office space is due to some form of business change. Whether that’s rapid expansion, a change in working styles, the need to attract and retain talent, or many other reasons. We can help you navigate this change and find the right office space for you, to benefit your people and your business.
Whatever your challenges, our team can help you understand your space requirements and advise on your next move. Is your existing space working for you? How much space do you need? How much does office space cost? What is the best location for your business?
Working styles, working models and growth projections are all important considerations when calculating how much office space you need. Evaluating your office workspace requirements through workplace consultancy can help define a strategy that’s right for your business.
Even if a location ticks all the right boxes, cost will still be an influencing factor. It shouldn’t be considered in isolation though. A suburban office is likely to be cheaper than a central city centre location, but the long term value it offers could be lower. Attracting talent will be much harder if your office is too rural, lacks public transport links and offers no amenities. Consider what will be most cost effective for your business in the long run.
The location of your office will play a big part in employee satisfaction. Convenient access with good transport links is a must. Access to local amenities such as cafes and green spaces should also be considered. Location will also largely dictate your future hiring pool. Think about where you need to be in order to attract the people who can help your business succeed.
Think about what’s important to your business and your people when looking for the right office building. Is meeting sustainability goals high on your agenda? Or if scalability is important, choose a building and floorplate that can accommodate growth. If employee wellbeing is crucial, a building which offers additional amenities such as showers, changing rooms and cycle storage is a must.
Our process focuses on understanding your business and listening to your people. We then learn about your working habits and evaluate your current office space and utilisation. From this, we are ideally placed to make an informed recommendation on your future workplace. This includes location, size and building.
