Space Planning

Good office design is crucial to the running of an efficient company. A well thought out and functional space plan is a key factor in creating an inspiring workspace that will encourage employees to work productively.

Whether you’re refurbishing your existing office or relocating to new premises, expanding or downsizing, we will evaluate your workspace needs and design a solution to suit your budget requirements. Contact a member of our Office Interiors team to discuss how we can create a layout tailored to suit your business needs.

CAD Service

There is always a lot to consider with any refurbishment or relocation and choosing a final layout can sometimes be a daunting task.

Using our free CAD and space planning service you can visualise how your workspace will look before any building work starts, giving you complete peace of mind that every factor has been considered. This means that any required changes or potential problems are highlighted and resolved early in the project process, eliminating the likelihood of any costly mistakes occurring further down the line.

We will produce accurate 2D and 3D visuals of your new layout and demonstrate how the use of innovative, functional solutions can be used to meet your brief and enhance the potential of your workspace.

We work with existing furniture, as well as recommending new furniture and space saving solutions. In all cases we aim to minimise expenditure and disruption to create dynamic, energising environments that spark creativity and bring out the best in your staff and your business.

Workplace Appraisal

The importance of well thought out workspace is often a factor that is overlooked by businesses but can often translate to into significant practical and financial benefits. Simple changes to a floor plan or furniture positioning can improve teamwork, communication and collaboration, directly impacting on staff motivation, morale and productivity. Smart, space planning can also save you money on unused space, unnecessary equipment, electricity and heating. In some cases it can even negate the need for moving premises entirely, saving you a small fortune.

As part of our service before starting the office space planning process we will provide a free workplace appraisal for your business. Key factors for evaluation include:


• Are there any building constraints and what are the overall shape and size of the rooms?

• How much space are you currently using and what are your future growth plans? Short and long term headcount? Space requirements per department?

• Are there any legal requirements to be met (e.g. DDA compliance)?

• What are your IT and infrastructure requirements?

• What are your storage requirements?

• Are there elements of your existing layout that are working well and should be kept?

Working relationships:

• What are your different ways of working? Do you need more meeting or training rooms, breakout areas, private offices or collaborative workspaces?

• How do people use the space to perform their daily tasks? Does the current design work with the natural flow and facilitate key business functions?

• Which teams and individuals interact with one another and how? Are managers, departments, teams and individuals positioned logically according to workflows?

• Who are the main users of printers and photocopiers etc.?

• Which areas could be open plan?

• Should provision be made for hot desking?


• How are the acoustics and lighting?

• Has best use been made of any natural light?

• Is there as much variety as possible in the overall design?

• Are there sufficient breakout areas and open spaces?

• Are communal areas positioned correctly?

• Does the space reflect your company identity and brand values? Does it create the right impression to your staff and clients?

Effective space planning can transform a cramped office into a spacious workplace. We can take care of everything to ensure planning your new office space is as stress free as possible and develop a workplace strategy which we implement from design through to delivery and installation.

Our aim is to create bespoke workplace solutions that will evolve with your business needs into the future. Contact us today to find out how we can make your office work smarter for you.
