If your business is considering moving to a new location, check out some of these questions you might ask yourself as you start the process of searching for a new space:
3. What is the ideal amount of space for your business? The amount of office space your business needs will mostly be determined by the amount of employees you have and how much workspace each requires. You will also want to consider the types of amenities your business needs, and whether those need to be in your space or you can share with other tenants in the building. Identify and figure into your spacing any resources, such as equipment, that you know you need. Your final step in determining the ideal amount of space for your business is factoring in growth considerations so that space around the office does not become too tight.
4. What is the most useful and efficient layout for your business’s operations? Your main priority in estimating your laying is supporting your business’s operations and other requirements with the least amount of extra space that will increase your rent costs. You will want to consider layout factors besides size, such as workstation preferences or interior design. Some businesses are better suited to open work environments, while others operate more efficiently in cubicles and private offices.
Pausing to really collect some data on your business’s space and layout needs will help you more efficiently determine what office spaces could be potential fits for your needs.
