Market/Area Research

Based on your space requirements and the areas of interest to you, we are able provide an overview of the current ‘stock’ available in the market and specific costs for the offices in the preferred areas. We organise and undertake preliminary viewings with you in order to narrow down the areas of interest.

Specific Premises Search

Once we have narrowed down the areas of interest we undertake a detailed search, identifying all properties that are on the market. We filter out properties that clearly wouldn’t work for you and we prior-view prospective properties and shortlist the suitable premises. This speeds up the viewing process and avoids wasting valuable time.

Staff & Business Impact Analysis

The location of your new premises will have a considerable impact on your staff which can result in cost and HR implications. We help identify these issues early in the process to allow you to make a fully informed decision on the new office location.

Building Appraisals & Surveys

The highest cost of fit-out and ownership of commercial buildings lie in the Mechanical and Electrical services. Ensuring that the systems are operating and maintained correctly is the primary activity when we survey and appraise buildings. Our technical consultants advise on existing condition, cost of prospective reconfiguration as well as identifying any potential opportunities to claim contribution from the landlord for remedial or modernisation works. This basic due-diligence is a prerequisite discipline to identify and avoid any undue expenses, health & safety concerns or any potential business impact during your lease term.

Fit-Out & Ownership Budgets

We produce detailed budgets comparing the leasing information for the shortlisted buildings as well as an estimate for all other costs related to your lease such as, the fit-out, IT systems and relocation costs in order to provide a clear view of the potential expenditure for the new premises.

Lease, Licence & Wayleave Negotiation

Once we have agreed Heads of Terms with the landlord’s representatives, we take full responsibility for the end to end lease process. We follow up the legal formalities for the lease drafting process with the solicitors and the Landlord’s representatives and assist in preventing delays where possible. We liaise with the Landlord’s surveyors for the review and approval of the Licence to Alter as well as establishing and tracking the Wayleave process for the internet line installation.

Test-Fit Drawings

Upon identifying buildings of interest and using your Ideal Office Layout as a template, we are able to quickly produce ‘Test-Fit’ drawings to show if and how the space will work which often depends largely on the shape of the space. This process helps visualise which of the shortlisted properties will work for you.
