    Space Planning can help to right-size your space

    Space Planning can help to right-size your space

    A space planning exercise can help determine if you are using your space efficiently. Do sales reps that spend most of the time on the road have their own workstations? If the reps only spend a few days a month in the office, you may want to consider having them share a workstation. Shared workstations can also help the sales reps stay organized since they will need to be able to access their data regardless of their location. Many companies have removed cubicles and installed long, open tables like these. These tables take up less space, provide a cleaner design, and can increase employee communication.

    Lease Negotiation Playbook

    Lease Negotiation Playbook

    When you are in the position to walk away from a lease as an existing or potential tenant, you will always have the upper hand. Landlords will do quite a lot to avoid vacancies and starting early gives you enough time to negotiate with that specific leverage in your back pocket. During lease renewal negotiations many landlords will offer tenant improvement allowances, amongst other things, just to convince you to stay. We recommend starting looking for a new space at least a year prior to the expiration date of your current lease.  This assures you have enough time to do your due diligence on everything from market analysis to your tenant-only representation.

Businesses have begun to realize that collaboration is important for certain tasks, while isolation may be required for others. This has inspired many offices around the world to architect multiple unique spaces in a single office to accommodate their employee’s tasks.

    How to Capitalize on your Tenant Improvement Allowance

    When it comes to commercial lease renewals it can become a tricky game. Do I stay? Is it time to move? Landlords understand that vacancies can go months without a new tenant and in turn cost them thousands of dollars over that time. Once they catch wind you are serious about potentially moving they will turn up the heat and do everything they can to get you to say.
