How to go about changing existing office space or find new ones?

  1. Start in time, ideally in advance. Companies that are considering changing existing offices or seeking hundreds of square metres should defiantly start a year in advance, while it is a question of a few years for companies who have a demand for thousands of square metres.
  2. Location is a question of prestige. Consider the prestige of your company above all, and if you truly need to be seen, chose prestigious addresses. Compare the location of your offices spaces with your competitors and find out the interests of their employees.
  3. The important thing is availability and services. Important, if not crucial, is the access to public transport, train stations or airports. Enough parking spaces, not only for cars, but also bicycles are among the priorities that companies should take into account.
  4. The number of choices for the employees. The availability of quality food options offering a wide selection is one of the important factors for satisfied employees.
  5. Don‘t forget the company growth in the future. Consider your potential growth and other needs prior to renting office space.
  6. Choose interesting working environments – attractive places for employees is very important. Your play a role in new concepts, including the atmosphere, the design, laying out the space, the break rooms and relaxation zones, an internet cafe or a common canteen.
  7. Money is in first place. Your budget must be clear from the beginning, so you must count the total cost for renting office space. Do not forget that the overall costs include not just the rent and service charges, but you also must be prepared for the cost of the equipment, furniture, it, moving and more. Costs will vary from case to case, but in general we can say that thanks to our know-how and knowledge of the market, we can save the client up to approximately 30 % of their costs. However, everything is linked to the size client, their capability, time lease agreement and finally the situation in the market.
  8. Hire an expert. Just as you hire a lawyer for legal services, also choose a specialist who is an expert in sphere of how renting office space changes and knows the details of the market, saving you money and time that can be devoted to your work.
  9. Transparent operational costs of buildings. Take an interest in how the lessor operates the building in question. And select the sort of place where the building lessor operates with the utmost care for the costs, which are market-based.
  10. An office or other spaces (warehouses, a showroom)? Even consider locations and projects that have already been calculated in advance with similar layout needs.
