Acquiring New Space
Buying or Leasing Space
Our mission is to secure the right workplace for our clients while minimising disruption and the drain on their resources.
Relocating to new premises is one the most significant property ‘events’ a business will face. The space a business operates from is a reflection of its values and aspirations and has an enormous impact on its most valuable asset – its people. The effect of the workplace upon both productivity and creativity is well documented and highlights the importance of having the right space. We understand this and place a great deal of emphasis on working with our clients to define what is right for them.
After staff costs property represents the second biggest cost to most businesses so getting the best value from this asset is critical. It is a major commitment taking space with long term implications, whether leasing or buying. It is not simply a case of negotiating the best deal in terms of the numbers but also getting the best protection from other less tangible risks that can be extremely costly over the property lifecycle. Understanding the nuances of how repairing obligations or the wording of a rent review clause translate into future financial commitments for example can be the difference between the perfect workplace and a nightmare situation.
Property also plays a fundamental role in the long term planning of a business. To many, having the flexibility that allows the business to adapt quickly is crucial to ongoing success in these difficult times. For others, having the security of a long term home is essential to enabling investment into the workplace and protecting of their supply operation.
