You’re not alone, it’s time to make the space work for your business
Your current office doesn’t have to remain stale with inflexible working arrangements that don’t help business growth.
The average length of a commercial office space lease is between 5 and 10 years, with many businesses choosing to avoid the upheaval and disruption of a move as long as they can. In addition, the uncertain political climate has certainly had even the strongest of industries battening down the hatches and staying put in their current premises until it’s clearer exactly how the economy is going to be affected by change.
An uncertain future for the country though, doesn’t have to mean putting up with stale, dated office interior dynamics that hinder business growth, dynamics ,productivity and brand image.
It’s true, the UK work environment is providing lots of challenges across the board, but there’s also some exciting opportunities for change too…
Inefficient working styles?
Do you need to be more agile?
Agile working is a combination of working differently and utilising new technology to aid those changes. Therefore, it makes logical sense that a change in furniture and decor can help aid this transition for businesses. If you’re looking to cultivate a more productive environment where the team can work where and how they want to, consider reaching out to one of our workplace consultants. We have extensive experience in designing innovative office changes that make a big impact and enhance agile working practices specific to your business needs.
“Agile is an attitude, not a technique with boundaries. An attitude has no boundaries, so we wouldn’t ask ‘can I use agile here’ but rather ‘how would I act in an agile way’ or ‘how agile can we be here?’.”
Communication is key for every business
Where’s my desk gone?
97% of employees believe communication has an impact on tasks performed daily, and 1 in 3 projects are thought to fail because of bad communication. We’re old hats at what we do, and we know that it is unacceptable for any business we work with to have to face unexpected changes and adaptations because of bad communication on our part.
Instead, we use effective change management using staff user groups and communication to ensure there are no nasty surprises, only plenty of great ones.
It’s more than a lick of paint
An office refurbishment based on insight and ingenuity
An insightful Forbes article discussed how over 50% of employees aren’t engaged in their work with nearly 20% saying they are actively disengaged. The write-up continued to explain how innovative office design is the best way to actively engage workers and encourage dynamic, productive teamwork. Simply put, offices that are collaborative and utilise activity based working are happier, because employees are free to redefine where and how they work.
We know that’s what modern business owners really want to achieve. Savvy business owners aren’t looking to adapt their office space to simply ‘look’ good. It’s an empty investment to get a few nice looking banners, some edgy looking chairs, some glass walls and the odd cacti dotted around for ‘outdoors in’ chic. It’s style without substance, and sometimes, there’s not even any style. To establish ourselves as industry leaders, we work in a way that ensures each and every office adaptation made is made for a distinct reason. We design an office based on:
- Workplace consultancy and study
- New furniture acquisition & recommendation
- Space reinvention
- Interior revitalisation
- Recommending and supporting new types of space usage
We have carefully created a way of working that is as innovative and flexible as the offices we design and install.
Are You Cashing In On Every Square Foot Of The Office?
Every business welcomes additional income, especially when it comes with a need for no additional equipment, training or staff. Have you considered setting up a demise wall, so that the space you pay for, but you don’t use, can be utilised by those looking to sublet? Freelancers, startups, smaller businesses and anybody needing temporary professional space to work in have money to give you, just for using a space that you already have.
We take care of the legal side of things
Skip the legal headache of office adaptations…
The average business owner works nearly 46 hours a week, usually including weekends. If you just read that through a yawn, and following a glug of coffee, the chances are you already know exactly how little time you have. We understand that modern business owners and management staff are extremely busy. We know you are unlikely to want the headache of the legalities behind a new office fit, despite wanting the benefits of getting a better working space. We take care of the Building Control, License To Alter packs and landlord approvals, so that you don’t have to. We value your time.
We’ll project manage the refurbishment
Project management comes as standard
Maybe you would love an office refit but you just don’t want the hassle of having to manage another project when you’re already so busy. Would you change your mind if an effective, professional team made the entire experience a breeze for you? No need to chase anything up, no nasty surprises, no rubbish communication, just an easy process that results in a phenomenal office designed to suit your business needs. If you work with the best, you get the best experience.
Zero disruption during the office refurbishment
It’s oh so quiet shh, shh…
There’s no blowing a fuse, and certainly no WHAM BAM with the way that our experienced team works in offices. No extensive disruption, dust or noise. We know that modern businesses are looking to avoid all of that upheaval, that is one of the reasons why you haven’t moved right? Instead, you can expect easy-to-use swing spaces to use whilst the renovation is done. Any loud and messy work that needs doing is completed strictly out of hours.
