Office space: What to consider when getting started…
Business premises need not be a major overhead when you know what to look for. What it boils down to is not only what you need from an office environment but also what you don’t.
It makes sense that the way most offices are priced is based on the size of the unit and any other facilities being offered or specifically required. The ability to plan ahead could pay dividends in the long run. Picturing both your long and short term needs goes a long way in finding space that is just right (picturing a little feng shui could help to boost staff productivity too!). Though not all circumstances are in your control. Occasionally you may expand to extends that are unprecedented.
Clever storage helps to maximise space without compromising on the tools you need to effectively run your business. When holding onto files from previous years, there’s no need to clutter up the office with bulky filing cabinets. We offer storage space at many of our locations allowing convenient and secure access to archives.
Too little space
Not planning for growth could hinder rapid expansion. Do you have senior employees or is your business on a trajectory towards needing one or two? It may be a good idea to plan more space for these types of employees as discretion and privacy may be required via a private office.
Too much space
Of course, too much of anything can also be a bad thing. Balance is key when finding room to grow without biting off more than you can chew. Empty space or even empty desks may give visiting clients the wrong impression in regards to the success of the business. One place where empty desks isn’t a problem is within a co-work environment. Much smaller businesses can start out using hot desks which are available for a predetermined time. This also gives the option of meeting clients in a professional environment while keeping costs and space to a minimum.
