Searching for the Perfect Office Space
With nearly 40 years of experience in real estate and having developed a reputation for excellence in Commercial Real Estate Advisement, our team understands the importance of finding the perfect office space for your company to grow. As you search for the environment best suited for your needs, it is important to answer critical questions that will set your business up for a successful workspace now and as it expands into the future.
If you’re looking for a place to start the process, consider asking the following questions to assess your current business and potential growth needs:
How many employees do you currently have?
How much space, per employee, would maximize their efficiency?
If your business is planning to expand the number of its employees in the next few years, will the current space being considered meet this demand?
What are your manufacturing needs and what type of space is required to operate your daily business?
Do you prefer an open layout or a more traditional office configuration for privacy?
How much parking will you need on your busiest day?
What are your technological needs? – internet access, cold room, etc.
How quickly do you need the space to be operational?
Regardless of your answers to these questions, the team at Scott Davis, CCIM is prepared to help guide you to the perfect office space for your business. It’s the job of our team to help you navigate the commercial Real Estate process with ease. When reviewing potential properties weigh the importance of these four primary factors:
Is the site easily accessible to employees and clients? If visibility is a consideration, will your office be seen from higher traffic areas? What surrounding businesses might be appealing for employees or clients to visit while in the area? Will travel time be a factor for your employees? Are there security concerns that will need to be addressed?
Will you have room for all necessary equipment and operations? Will you have spaces for employees to break, meet on projects, entertain clients/customers? Can your production needs be easily managed and expanded, if needed? Is there adequate storage space available? Will this space still meet your needs in one year, five years, ten years?
Does this location have reliable providers for internet, telephone, delivery services, etc.? Are cellular signals strong in this area for major providers? Are utilities - such as electricity, water, sewage, and sanitation - already in place?
Does the location match the image you are trying to represent with your brand? Would you be eager to use images of the space in promotions? Will you have an entryway and/or conference space to greet guests and present your brand in the best light possible? Are there adjustments can you make to the space to create a greater appeal to clients and employees?
