Office Space Checklist
The process of choosing the right office space can be complex, time consuming and even confusing. And is there any such thing as the ideal office space? To make the process of choosing the right office space easier, we’ve put together a practical Office Space Checklist that will help you quickly assess the suitability of each office property you view and enable you to choose the right office space that matches your business, financial and space requirements.
You will need to have some idea about your new office requirements so you can brief your Property Agent about the type of office space you are looking for. This will save time viewing lots of office properties that are wholly unsuitable. The Office Space Checklist provides an invaluable framework to help you determine what is and isn’t important to you in your new office.
When choosing office space, there are 4 key criteria that the office space will need to fulfil before you even decide to go and view the property. They are:
Is it big enough? Use the Office Space Calculator to work out your requirements.
Can you afford it? Remember to factor in other ongoing charges as well as the rent.
Is it in the right location? Decide which area (s) are going to be best for your business?
Is it available for when you want to move in?
Other Office Space Checklist Considerations include:
- Do you need security in the new office and how secure is the current service provided?
- Are there any restrictions about how you can redecorate or fit out the office space?
- What’s the neighbourhood like and do the nearby facilities satisfy the needs for your staff and clients?
- How much car parking do you need?
- Does the office have adequate IT & Telecoms requirements for your business?
The Office Space Checklist is an ideal document for you to take with you when viewing potential office properties. By asking these important questions, you will quickly be able to determine the suitability of a property and eventually find YOUR ideal office space.
