Tips for choosing the best office space
Compare Apples with Apples
It’s important that when comparing offices you look at the different sites on a total cost basis or more accurately from a cost per head basis. We look at a number of benchmarks to allow us to accurately model the financial impact to your business. Often a property may appear more expensive but could end up being more efficient at the end of the day
Request a Space Assessment
All businesses are different some requiring open plan where others require individual offices to allow focus and privacy, canteens break out areas, meeting room configuration etc. These requirements all point toward different offices. We will provide you with a high level space assessment to begin the search for offices which cuts down on time spent on looking at properties that will never work. This report is compiled at risk by one of our partner affiliates across the country.
Parking for the office space
Take note if the building you’re looking at has sufficient parking options such as a parking lot or sufficient street parking. If you’re in a busy CBD, good parking is the difference between employees getting in on time or having to waste time finding a parking spot far away. If a high component of your staff travels to work using private transport you will need more parking than the standard building may offer. To get around this you might consider one of our properties boasting a super-basement allowing you a far higher parking ratio
