  • If you are relocating, there are a few points to take into consideration before you start scoping out new areas. You’ll want to ensure the new office is located somewhere that’s convenient for your employees, clients and suppliers.

  • First factors to consider:

    • Is it centrally located and near good transport connections?
    • How will your clients access your new space?
    • Accessibility and visibility is key. If the new building is hidden away down an unmarked side road or tricky to access, couriers, suppliers and even clients may struggle to get to you.

  • A space with the right local amenities nearby

    You’ll be spending your working week here so you’ll want to ensure it’s well equipped for the time that you and your staff spend outside of the office. Consider the proximity of the following amenities:

    • Good eateries nearby to cater for a variety of lunchtime budgets
    • Restaurants for entertaining clients
    • Hotels for travelling clients
    • Easy access to suppliers and facilities regularly used
    • Banks

    A space that you’re expecting

    • Check for any ongoing or upcoming construction projects taking place. Major builds on your doorstep could be noisy and disruptive for your workforce and give a bad impression to visiting clients.
    • Are there any long-term transport modifications/closures planned? Re-routed buses and suspended train or tube stations could cause headaches.

  • Picking the perfect building

    Once you’ve settled on the right location it’s time to decide on the right premises; you’ll need somewhere that allows for change, growth and any future developments.
