Your office relocation could well be among the largest individual items of business expenditure for many years.
Although some aspects of it are obviously much easier to budget for accurately, many less apparent expenses lurk in the fog, and it’s the great unknowns of a typical commercial relocation that consistently cause companies to under budget, sometimes woefully so.
You could dramatically reduce the likelihood of budget surprises on your office relocation by partnering with professional teams from the outset. Project Managers and leading office relocation companies owe their success to the accuracy with which they can produce budgets and then deliver against them.
Budgets should always have a contingency for unforeseen challenges or elements of the project that you wish to adjust mid-stream. You should also expect your budgets to be treated with respect.
When the project budgets have been established, be sure to also include professional fees, any new I.T infrastructure costs, furniture, telecoms, insurances, and even marketing and PR to announce the new-look working environment.
In some cases leasing the fit-out and furniture gives you access to it without paying for it all at once and is now an available option. It would be wise to consult your office relocation partner to consider whether leasing would suit your business model.
