Office space planning.

The value of working with a space planner.

Planning office space optimally is all about giving you the most value from your available space in a way that supports how your people work. Many businesses use a relocation or a refurbishment as an opportunity to reconsider the way they use their buildings.

For those that decide to stay in their current premises, space planning can help to extract more value from a space, turning it into a highly efficient environment. For those looking at new properties, space planning can give you the reassurance that your new space really does suit your business, before you sign the lease.

Claremont’s space planning encompasses staff consultation and workshops, feasibility studies, measured site surveys, furniture and equipment audit and inventories, and move management drawing packages. We consider every aspect of your organisation from people to processes, tools and furniture, ensuring that your space is optimised for your business.

Claremont’s professional space planners consider each of these factors before devising the best plan for your organisation’s needs:

  • The possibility of intensifying the use of space over time, taking into account increased external and internal mobility, achieving greater efficiency and future business growth
  • Your existing furniture and equipment, as well as considering flexible furniture solutions that allow spaces to serve more than one purpose
  • The efficiency of the building footplate linked to access, circulating routes and service cores and the ‘fit factor’, looking at edges, corners and ‘dead ends’ – the spaces which you cannot use
  • Vertical circulation, retaining vision across the space to improve the prospect of chance encounters and the ideas these can generate
  • Issues of acoustic and visual privacy, work group size, vertical and horizontal travel distances and building depth, maximising natural light for employee wellbeing
  • Providing flexible IT infrastructure that ensures connectivity through phases of organisational change.
