Renovation vs. Relocation - The Case for Making the Most of Your Space
If your business is growing, hiring more staff, or running out of office space, you might be wondering whether it’s time to relocate to another office, or simply renovate your existing premises. This can be an extremely difficult decision to make; each option has plenty of pros and cons which vary hugely from company to company. In this blog, we intend to show you that you don’t need a costly move to a new office to be able to drastically overhaul your working environment.
Office Space Refurbishment - Renovate, Don’t Relocate
It might be tempting to just move to a new office and start again from scratch, especially if you believe there’s nothing that could be done to improve your current space.
Here at Office Innovations, we’re firm believers that even the oldest, most cramped spaces can be made like new again with some tender love and care (and some careful planning).
One of the most obvious reasons to choose office renovation work over relocation is the amount of money your business can save by refurbishing. Not only does relocation mean a new (likely increased) rent cost, it also involves admin and letting agent fees, the cost of moving equipment, as well as loss of profits from employee downtime during the move.
When working with an expert office fit-out company like ourselves, we can take a look at what works, what doesn’t, and find a solution to revamp your current space while saving you time and money. We’ll make sure to cause minimal disruption to your team while work is being carried out, so that you can carry on doing what you do best. As well as much less disruption to your employees, a fit out as opposed to a relocation means that your employees won’t have to deal with additional traffic or a new commute, which can cause unnecessary stress and poorly affect employee morale.
A renovation is also ideal if your current location is integral to your business, or indeed if you are tied into a long lease which renders you unable to relocate.
A major factor in businesses deciding to move premises is that business owners often simply can’t imagine how their current space could be improved in any way. At Office Innovations, we can make use of 3D visualisation software to show you exactly how your space can be improved, and allow you to have crucial input on the design and layout - you know exactly what you’re getting and won’t be surprised by the final result.
In some cases, it simply isn’t possible to stay where you are - perhaps your lease has ended, your landlord is selling your building, or the rent has become too high to keep up with.
In these cases, relocation can often be the most suitable option, however that doesn’t make it any less daunting. If you are in a position where you need to relocate your business, make use of a turn-key office fit out solution and allow us to handle your project from concept to completion and take the stress out of your relocation.
