Office space planning

Office space planning is the first step in any design project, and our workplaces thinkers use their creative expertise and client insight to ensure a successful office design.

One of the most important elements of an office refurbishment or relocation is figuring out exactly where all your new furniture, meeting rooms and other services will sit. The office space planning stage is the first step of any office design. This is where we really get to dig into the brief and gather insights from your workplace consultancy, learning all we can about who you are and what you need.

 

Informing the office space plan

Your office space plan can be affected by several factors. To outline of these factors, we review the building overview and gather all the important need-to-know information that may impact progress. This stage may include the following:

  • Business cases and strategic briefs
  • Client discovery meetings
  • Workplace studies and analyses
  • Staff surveys, focus groups and in-depth research
  • Setting achievable goals

 

Bespoke designs

As you tour potential offices with commercial property agents, we’re on hand to create space plans that can demonstrate how each office can support your business goals. Through close partnerships with everyone involved, we ensure that you select the most suitable new office.

Space planning was key to creating the new London office for Kantar Worldpanel. Following their workplace consultancy, we were able to plan their new office across two floors, which reduced their desk space by 40% and freed up more room for fresh, agile workspaces.
