Whether your business is relocating to new premises or opening an additional office as part of ongoing expansion, the process of customising a blank canvas into your ideal working environment requires a strategic approach, starting with the design.
At the outset of any project we try to establish what the driving factors are. In some cases there’s a defined budget in place, which will effectively determine the decisions made during the design process. For others, budget is not the main issue and it’s more a case of creating an environment in which your business can thrive.
At Aptus, we advise you to think carefully about the needs of your staff and what kind of workplace experience you want to create. Throughout the design process we will work with you to understand the ethos of your business, providing 3D renders and 360 degree views to help you to visualise the end result.
We take pride in providing a significant level of detail in regard to the specification, timescales and costs to help ensure that you have all the necessary information at your disposal before a project begins.
We make sure that all elements of the scheme have been considered, such as the mechanical and electrical framework, which determines essential items such as power supply, heating, cooling and communications
Once underway, our experienced team manages each contract selecting the best sub-contractors, maintaining health and safety and controlling waste management. Throughout each project, our renowned attention to detail and budget control ensure effective progress, whilst communicating effectively to all stakeholders at regular intervals.
We work with established furniture providers to help you select the right furnishing solutions for your workplace. Increasingly, we are finding that clients want to help improve the health and well-being of their staff by promoting good posture and movement in the workplace. Choosing the right furniture is the first step which in our experience can help improve productivity and encourage employees to collaborate more effectively.
For growing businesses of all sizes, the costs associated with establishing a new office need to be carefully considered. Even if you have cash reserves available it may be beneficial from an accounting point of view to spread the costs with a finance package. If that’s the case we can help provide lease quotes through the industry leader, Bluestone Leasing, who have the largest portfolio of lenders in the UK.
