Whatever you do, don't try to do everything yourself. First, it's not always possible to do the entire project from start to finish by yourself (along with your existing duties). And secondly, you don't have the experience or expertise to find and negotiate the right space and lease, or move all your belongings from A to B without encountering any problems. Here's a list of the expertise you'll need on board your team to carry out the process smoothly:
Tenant Rep Broker - to find the right space and negotiate a lease that suits your requirements
Real Estate Lawyer - to review the legalities of the lease and ensure you understand your tenant obligations
Office Interiors Company - plan how all your furniture and equipment is going to fit into the space and construct an office build-out that enables your business to function effectively
IT & Telecom Solutions Provider - to plan your basic IT requirements in the new office, set up the new space with the correct cabling and infrastructure - whilst at the same time, minimizing business disruption during the move
Office Moving Company - to get all your belongings from A to B safely and securely
Hiring the right professionals is the single biggest MUST DO for any business during a relocation.
Calculate New Space Requirements
Moving to a new office is the best time to review your space requirements so that the new office is capable of meeting both your immediate and future requirements. It also enables you to appraise your existing workspace to find out what facilities you need to allow your business to function efficiently. This Office Space Calculator is a handy tool that calculates how much office space you'll need.
