“Office relocation can be one of the most expensive events a business will experience. It pays to do your homework.”

Where do you start?

Below are five of the most important considerations to take into account when relocating your office. Contact us and we will go over these issues and more to develop a plan of action that is tailored for you and your business needs.

  1. TIMING: The amount of time it will take to find and move into a new office location is proportional to the amount of space and amenities needed.
  2. SQUARE FOOTAGE: Will the square footage that works for you now work for you in the future, or do you anticipate growth?
  3. LOCATION: The right location may seem obvious, but make sure you also evaluate it from the perspective of your clients, staff and vendors.
  4. FEATURES: What space configuration works best for your company? Open office layouts vs. private offices? Which building type (tower, mid-rise, retro, etc.)? Are you looking for the “wow factor”? How does your company work—have you mapped out the number and size needed of conference rooms, executive offices, employee work and breakout spaces, reception areas, kitchens and coffee bars, mail and copy areas, storage rooms, etc.?
  5. TOTAL COST: Do you know the length of obligation and long-term costs of space you are considering? Are you aware of public incentives available to your company? Have you factored in renovation costs? Do you know the financial strength of the building owner?
