Save floor space with efficient storage

To maximise the potential of your new workspace, it’s first important to analyse your existing office space to understand what we need to achieve. This can include measuring the available space, and understanding your current furniture undergoing a storage survey to understand if there is a more efficient storage system, helping you to save space. 

We can also analyse the current floor plate, understanding high and low traffic areas, acoustics, plus how different departments work alone and together identifying where they should be located, and what types of workspaces they require. Gathering this information helps us to identify where we can help to achieve your goals, providing an office that works for you and your future needs.
