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?

Corporate Identity:

  • 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?


  • 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?
  • Will it help attract the quality of employees that your company requires to meet your strategic goals?
  • Will it provide an environment that will help you retain your employees on a long-term basis? Will it reduce turnover?
  • Is corporate branding carried throughout your facility?

CFS has been serving the Twin Cities metro area since 1979.

We started out installing and moving office furniture in the Twin Cities for major contract dealers.  In the 1990’s we teamed up with Herman Miller and became a full line dealer.  Since then we have grown into an over 80,000 sq. ft. warehouse in St Louis Park housing over 200 manufacturers of used office furniture lines to meet your needs.

CFS does a lot more than just sell office furniture. We have been providing total workplace solutions for those in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro regardless of size or needs. We do sell excellent office furniture, from Herman Miller to our huge stock of dependable used furniture. But more than that, it’s our wide range of services that enable us to deliver great environments to our customers.
