We get to know your business so we can define a workplace strategy that's uniquely yours. 

We want to know everything! Our workplace consultancy teams will work with you to understand not only your business needs and goals, but also your people and what makes them tick. This lets us focus your new office design around your people, so that they’ll find it inspiring and engaging.

A detailed workplace strategy not only defines your office fit out brief, it can also help to increase people productivity and staff morale. A solid people strategy can transform your office into a business asset that attracts and retains your industry's very best talent. Our goal is to create flexible, efficient workplaces that can save you money, and leave your staff feeling happier and healthier!

How we define your workplace strategy

  • 1. We share your goals

    We believe in evidence led design. Our team gain a deep understanding of your business - from your needs and goals, to your people, culture, existing systems and workplace technologies. This ensures that your business goals are at the centre of the canvas upon which we design your workplace strategy.

  • 2. We take in the whole picture

    We want to make sure that we cover every angle of how your people work in their current surroundings, and how you’d like to see them work in the future. This is why we pull everything that we’ve learned about your business, people and office space together into an inspirational ‘story’ of your new office; complete with ideas, drawings and high-level concepts. 

  • 3. We thoroughly appraise your space

    Whether you're refurbishing or moving premises, we want to fully understand your space. A thorough appraisal assesses everything from shape, size and square footage, to security and IT – allowing us to design a space that’s right for your business. Understanding the technical spec and limitations of the building helps us to strike the perfect balance between creativity and practicality.

Our research methodologies

  • Time utilisation study

    Also known as Space Utilisation, Time and Motion, or Occupancy studies, this allows us to measure how effectively you’re using your current office space.  We’ll observe every single desk, office, meeting room, and breakout area at least 10 times over the course of 5 to 10 days. This allows us to understand when the space is actively or only temporarily used, and when it’s left vacant. Once the study’s complete, we'll provide strategic recommendations that are benchmarked against peers in your sector or region.

  • Workplace evaluation survey

    This is designed to gather information on current working patterns, understand how colleagues perceive the office environment, and how they see themselves working in the future. We also gather specific information on commuting patterns, wellbeing, storage requirements, and the appetite for workplace change, along with flexible or activity-based working.

    This is a great way to gain employee buy-in for any new workplace initiatives. We structure the survey in a way that allows us to analyse responses by team, department, location, job profile or age group; providing key insights into how your workplace is used and perceived.
