Let’s look at the facts – Workplace Optimisation will save companies fortunes over the term of their leases.
As companies look to make efficiencies with their organisations one important area to look at is property costs.
A proper and thorough Workplace Optimisation strategy could help you save thousands on rent, service charges and other hidden costs.
The following examples demonstrate how an outline brief has been translated into a detailed design for occupation of 16,546 sq ft at a prominent West End development.
The property closely achieved the Client’s original search criteria of 15,000 sq ft.

The Unoptimised Workplace

Property costs across a 10 year lease: £21,179,046 (excluding VAT)
The example below demonstrates a detailed design scheme for the same outline brief, yet one that has been subject to a Workplace Study.
Through the Workplace Study, methods of working, flexible working practices, space standards and observations regarding meeting rooms, cellular and open plan working have all been reviewed and efficiencies implemented that will improve performance and reduce the real estate requirement. The IT strategy for the business has been re-written and now provides a robust, de-risked, remotely hosted service.
The optimised workplace now allows for increased headcount, expansion and cellular offices, whilst achieving a 6,499 sq ft space saving which equates to a staggering £8,318,785 saving across a 10 year lease.
