There's been some positive news reported recently on the UK's car market with new UK car sales hitting a 10-year high in 2014. Closer to home, Sussex-based Rolls Royce has reported its best year ever, signifying increased consumer confidence in buying big ticket items.
Good news indeed. The South-East economy is continuing to recover well, with stronger GDP growth than the UK average. Of course, there is some uncertainty surrounding the upcoming general election in May, which could hinder business confidence but overall, businesses are feeling that things are on the up.
So what does this mean for your business? At Trevor Blake, we've had a strong start to the year, with a higher than average number of enquirers from companies needing to either increase desk space in their existing premises or look for new offices to meet the needs of a growing workforce.
There is a lot that goes into arranging an office move so consider your options carefully. It's worth talking to an office refurbishment company and arranging for them to assess your current workplace before deciding that you need to move.
At Trevor Blake, we are happy to come along and give you some free advice on how you may be able to free up floor space and install new desks and facilities to meet your needs.
Quite often, its outdated office furniture that's the problem and replacing those cumbersome old desks and storage units with some white bench desks and slim-line storage units frees up space for more desks, whilst also giving your office a fresher, modern look which in turn boosts staff morale and productivity.
Take a look at the recent office furniture installation that we undertook for BSi Group where 20 additional Vitra desk positions were added into the open plan layout at their landmark Milton Keynes building.
So our message to anyone considering how to increase their workspace is to involve an office refurbishment contractor early on, whether it's an existing office refurbishment or relocation to new offices, you'll benefit from their expertise and a consultation is usually free and there's no obligation to go ahead.
