Office relocation FAQs

I need more space. Is it necessary to relocate?

If you need more space, it's not always necessary to relocate. Our Workplace Strategy team can help you to identify opportunities within your current space to maximise the efficiency of your real estate.

How much does an office relocation cost?

Relocating your people and business is a significant investment. The cost associated with a workplace relocation depends on the project's scope and objectives, and the timeframe within which it needs to be completed. We’ll help you to manage these factors, providing clear information about both costs and work involved.

Should I move to my own space or a serviced office?

The answer to this question depends on your needs and goals. This may be something you know already, or something we can help you uncover.

Regardless of what kind of workplace you choose, our job is to translate your needs and requirements into a bespoke working environment.

How should you communicate an office relocation to your employees?

How should you communicate an office relocation to your employees?

For your people, moving office locations represents a huge change. Involving employees throughout the journey not only builds support in favour of the move, but also helps to achieve a smooth transition into the new space. Your workplace strategy and change management process should be tailored to your team’s specific needs, on an individual and a group level. We’ll help to uncover what this looks like, whether it’s the appointment of change champions with your business; gathering feedback via questionnaires and surveys; or engagement workshops. We’ll work closely together to develop a bespoke change management programme.
