Understand space requirements

Our workspace consultants will observe your business by performing a full space audit, considering how rapidly changing office trends will impact the design.

Our office interior design scheme and strategy will ensure that the workplace we design for you utilises every corner of your space.

We use a Workplace Analysis Process (WAP), to really understand your space. It gives us a snapshot of your key statistics, drivers and goals in relation to your work space, so we know where to focus our attention.

Utilising technology

Our team of expert office interior designers and architects will work closely with you to understand your challenges, limitations, and opportunities in the workplace.

It’s not just about providing your staff with new laptops, but with all the communication tools they need to work flexibly and efficiently. It’s about empowering your staff to be able to work at their best, with the technology solutions that fit their business needs.

It's all about the people

We’ll also monitor your most important asset – your workforce.

Your employees are an integral part of your business, so it is vital that we understand what their needs are, how to make sure they feel valued, and how to support them to succeed.

Our workplace consultancy will work with you to deliver the change management needed for a successful project. We’ll engage with your staff, making sure they know how to fully utilise their new space, and inspiring them to embrace the changes from day one.

Our dedicated aftercare means that once your office fit out is complete, we’ll follow up with you to make sure everything is running smoothly.

Workplace Consultancy FAQs

What does the Workplace Analysis Process involve?

The Workplace Analysis Process, or WAP, allows us to look at all areas of the business that impact people and the way they work. Factors such as the physical environment, processes, culture, operations, and technology will all be assessed so we can identify risk factors and ensure that any new workplace design is functional and effective for every employee.

By looking at these areas and assessing how they interact and impact your people we give you a comprehensive report on how to build an effective workplace that has maximum impact on your teams as well as streamlining costs at the same time.

Why research workspaces?

From office furniture to layout, we ensure that a comprehensive picture of the impact of your workspace is developed. This ensures that you have all the information to be able to make fully qualified decisions about the shape and function of your workspace, understanding the impact of every aspect of your office.

Staff engagement and communication are key to the success of any workplace project. Our approach ensures the change can be managed effectively, gaining buy-in to foster engagement.
