Office relocation steps to success!

When it’s time to decide on relocating to a new office or refurbishing your current workspace, you’re making an investment in the future of your business. Here’s how you ensure you get the maximum return.

  • Lead-in to build
  • Choose Your Partner
  • Internal Team & Research
  • The Big Move
  • Design
  • Building Search
  • Lead-in to build
  • Choose your fit-out specialist
  • Internal project team & research

  • Design development & approvals
  • Building search & survey
  • Lead-in to build

    If you’re refurbishing your current offices, keep a watchful eye on productivity. Work closely with your fit-out partner to plan the refurbishment for minimal disruption and keep the whole office informed. If you are relocating, commercial dilapidations clauses demand you leave your old office space as you found it. Make sure your fit-out planner has everything in hand.

  • Choose your fit-out specialist

    Now you need an office refurbishment or relocation contractor to evaluate your workspace options architecturally, mechanically, electrically and financially. It’s pros and cons time and outside expert insight will help you make the right decision.

  • Internal project team & research

    This is a big decision and it requires due care and attention. You need a strong but calm and reasoned project leader and a project team comprising all key departments. Then find out what works in your workplace and what doesn’t? What are your limitations and aspirations? What’s the long-term strategy? Is technology helping or does it hamper? We analyse your workspace and workflows, opinions and moods, costs and benefits, goals and needs.

  • The big move

    Get the best office removal firm you can, based on your fit-out partner’s recommendations. Back up your data, brief your staff and set up an orientation and welcome session or training pack for their brand new workspace. Once staff are settled and normality has returned, there’s bound to be the odd niggle. Get the project team together and conduct a full office review. It’ll be easy to iron out minor creases if you catch them early.

  • Design development & approvals

    Here’s where your new workspace takes shape, considering everything from colour schemes and materials to collaboration space, workflows and departmental relationships. Give your office interior designers all the support, information and feedback you can.

  • Building search & survey

    If your current workspace isn’t right – in cost, location or spatial needs terms – you need one that can carry you through the next decade and beyond. A commercial property agent can find your new home and secure it on the right terms.
