- There is a series of metrics which is invaluable for analyzing the efficiency of any office space, both existing and planned spaces.
- At first glance it may appear simple to list all the spaces needed, along with their respective sizes and arrive at a total square footage requirement; however, additional space should be allocated to account for hallways and circulation paths within your space. This can vary dramatically depending on how efficient a layout that can be accomplished within a given building footprint .
- Allow room for growth. Optimally the new space should be sized to accommodate all the staff projected through the midterm in the lease, e.g. 30 people are expected on move-in and your firm should grow to 50 by the end of the lease.
- Once you choose your top 3 spots, MSA will then get busy creating a test fit to see which space works best for your new HQ.
A little up front analysis and planning, through the help of a professional architect with experience in office planning, can go a long way in laying the necessary groundwork for a smooth transition to your new office.
