Space calculation:
A quick and effective tool used to calculate the actual space required by an organisation in order to operate effectively.

Blocking and stacking:
A simple and effective process to determine how an organisation may utilise a particular space -- where certain departments and ancillary areas may be placed in relation to one another. This assists in the evaluation of the suitability of one building against another.

Budget estimates:
A generic spreadsheet that contains all the latest construction, furniture and decorating rates. This can be applied to any building to produce an estimate of what it will cost to fit out and / or refurbish a particular space. When this is used in conjuction with the space calculation document it enables an organisation to compare buildings in a holistic manner, taking into account both the lease costs as well as the potential fit out expenditure

Space planning:
A detailed floor plan indicating the actual position and size of the furniture and fittings, whether new or existing, positioned and grouped by department or area. This gives a comprehensive “snap shot” of how the space will then be utilised.

Interior design:
Final specifications, detailing and finishes boards. A complete set of drawings used by the costing and construction teams to interpret the overall requirements in terms of the look and feel, as well as the detail of how everything will be implemented. Incorporating:

  • Ergonomics and flow
  • Ecologically sound or sustainable “green” design and specification.
  • Latest trends in material sourcing.
  • Technology requirements.
  • Furniture requirements and special needs.
