Designing Offices for Growth

Feeling confident that your business will boom is great! Planning ahead in business is always wise, but selecting premises that give you the potential to expand without crippling your cash flow can be tricky.

There are many ways that office design can help to reevaluate and maximise space when the time comes. In the meantime, you don’t want your working environment to look empty or to swamp your existing operation, so clever office design at all stages of your business growth is important.

Our expert office design team can offer valuable input to help you and your team fit your office space perfectly, both now and in the future. Expanding businesses don’t just need room for more desks; growth will bring more equipment, files, IT, visitors, meetings and more. All of these things need to be factored in when choosing and designing offices for growth.

In the short term, cleverly laid out desks, relaxed seating areas, art and other furnishings can ensure that your offices don’t look like a five-year-old wearing his dad’s suit. You want to fill your space, making it look comfortable and appropriate. You need to consider things such as furniture requirements, workflow around the building and office acoustics when deciding where certain members of staff or departments will be located. You may only have one sales desk now, but if you plan to invest in your sales team, then ensure that one desk is situated in the right place with the potential for the department to spread.

If you achieve exponential growth then solutions such as mezzanine floors, offsite storage, outsourcing, hot desks, and flexible working hours may become a consideration, enabling you to maximise every inch of your office space without a dramatic rise in your overheads.
