Enjoy peace of mind with professional office relocation from Active. Our team has over 15 years of experience in the working in the office interiors industry.

1. The Location Of The Building

When relocating your place of work it is very important to think about the location that you are moving to. You need to make sure that it is easy to reach for your existing employees.This means both good access for those commuting by car, and also good access for those who are commuting by public transport.

Additionally,you need to consider things such as car parking and make sure that there is enough space for your existing staff to park their cars, and also make sure that there is enough space for any future employees.

However, you also need to think about your clients. In addition to considering the needs of employees who are commuting, you'll also need to think about any clients who may visit your office location for meetings. Indeed, if your business frequently invites clients (or potential clients) to visit for in-person meetings, it is very important that the new location is easy to access and has a list of easy to understand directions.

Also, consider the environment that the office is located in. Would this environment provide visitors to your workplace with a good first impression of your business? Creating a good first impression is not limited to things the inside of a workplace, such as a reception area, you also have to consider the external area of the building as this area could have an effect on an individual's first impression of your business.

2. Is The Office Environment Suitable For Your Business?

Every business is different and as such, every business has different needs. With regards to relocation and finding a new workplace for your business, it is very important that the new office location is suitable for your business.

For example, if your employees work well in large collaborative spaces, perhaps you would be interested in finding a new location that has a large open plan office area. However, if your workforce perform at their best whilst working privately, perhaps an office environment with a selection of private office spaces will be good for your business.

You'll also have to consider the size of the building. Is it big enough for your existing workforce to complete their tastes in a comfortable and well optimised location? Also, will the location be able to support growth within in business?

You should also think about things such as kitchen areas and bathroom/toilet areas. For example, would you like to include a shower area for your employees? Or perhaps your staff would like a large breakfast area where they can enjoy a meal at the start of the day.
