Your future workspace is a crucial ingredient in your business's culture, and hence productivity. So, if your lease is expiring, do you reformat your current space or start afresh somewhere new?
Both options have inherent risks but bring limitless opportunities.
Relocation, for instance, can mean no business downtime and may allow you to foster a new culture or introduce a different style of working. Here, where we hit our stride is by helping you reap the benefits of a softer market (e.g. lower rents or higher incentives) or find savings without reducing headcount (leveraging the WFH norm).
On the other hand, staying put can save capital in terms of fit-out costs. It may also mean you're not inconveniencing staff and customers with a change of address and that you don't have to work with a new landlord (better the devil, you know).
To determine the best solution for your business, you need to consider a range of factors. And that's what we do in the first stage of all our projects. Depending on your circumstances, we'll help you decide whether to:
Renew in your current premises – If this is the best option, we'll also help you negotiate stronger terms that align with the improved market conditions. We can help you negotiate a new lease with your landlord within the same building and manage any design and fit-out changes discreetly to minimise the impact on staff productivity.
Relocate to a new premises – Our comprehensive property search with full market coverage (that's properties from every landlord and agency) and market insights will present you with a business case that helps you determine whether relocation is the best solution for your business. And, if it is, we'll match you with the perfect space and negotiate the best possible terms on your behalf.
Even if you know that you want to renew or relocate, we still recommend the 'Stay or Go' project strategy to create the greatest leverage. While it means extra work for us, the savings results make it worthwhile!
