The new financial year is approaching and you're finally getting the budget for the much-needed office refurbishment, but where do you start in defining what needs to be done?
Fixtures & Fittings
Is your office partitioning in the right places? Is it adequate? Do you require more partitioning?
Do you have enough electrical sockets or do you require more?
Are there any extra data cabling outlets required?
Does the existing lighting suit the office layout? Can you make better use of natural light?
Is your heating and ventilation system working efficiently? When was it last serviced?
Is the carpet looking tired, does it need changing or will a professional deep-clean suffice?
Do you have adequate storage and is it in the right location within the office?
Does everyone have a comfortable office chair that can be adjusted correctly.
Office design and layout
Does you office layout suit the way that everyone works?
Does your office layout provide flexibility for company growth?
