Planning a New Office Space or Remodel?

“Big Picture” Issues to Consider When You Are Planning a New Office Space or a Remodel

These issues are above and beyond the hard costs of planning for a new space or a remodel of you existing space – but, they are the issues which may have a greater effect on your overall bottom line.

Economic Considerations:

  • Does the space meet your economic requirements on a cost basis?
  • Does the lease provide reasonable options for growth or retraction?
  • Does the space meet the physical requirements for your company?
  • Does the space provide the infrastructure for your technological needs – voice, power and data?
  • Will the furniture and build outs meet your corporate needs now and in the future? Do they provide ease of change in a cost-effective manner?
  • Does the layout and office furniture promote increased efficiency and productivity for your employees?
  • Does it also promote their health and safety?

  • Does your planned space reflect your corporate image?
  • Does it align with your corporate strategy?
  • Can you set corporate standards and guidelines through your new layout to help you manage your company?

Culture:

  • How do you want your new space to reflect your corporate culture?
  • Will you change the atmosphere of how your company works physically works together? Will it be an open or collaborative environment or, will it be more of a traditional, closed environment?
  • How will your space’s finishes reflect your company?
  • Will your space promote innovation and efficiency?

Attraction & Retention:

  • Will your space improve the morale of your workforce?
