Most organisations focus their space requirements on net internal area.
When in reality the key factor in achieving an optimised working environment is to occupy a property with a high building efficiency.
Most organisations focus their space requirements on ‘net internal area’ which is the space upon which you will pay rent, rates and service charge.
The challenge with undertaking a property search based solely on net internal area is that this figure will include an ‘estimate’ of primary and secondary circulation space which includes a ‘fit-factor’ to absorb the inefficiencies of various buildings.
The Workplace Strategy is primarily centred upon net useable area and building efficiency. Net useable area excludes circulation space and ‘fit-factor’, analysing the core requirements of a business over a period of 1, 3, 5 or even 10 years.
The focus therefore shifts towards identifying a property with the most efficient circulation and ‘fit’.
Coupled with the recommendations made throughout the remainder of the Workplace Strategy, this will allow for a more focused property search.
Upon selection of a short-list of properties, this approach will allow identification of the requisite efficiency levels of each property.
