Moving Offices: Plan and Prepare for Consolidation

Moving offices can be a challenge for a business. This is especially true when you are merging two offices for consolidation purposes. Combining two offices in a shared space needs additional planning. After all, you want to make the best use of the space as well as the available assets.

Moving offices into a shared space

If you want to merge an office with an already established and operating office, lack of space might become an issue. That’s why the identification of space that is not being used is an essential phase of the planning stage:

  • Is there a meeting space that nobody meets in?
  • Are there any unnecessarily empty corners?
  • Is there storage space that is not needed for storage and could be converted into additional office space? Is there any material/files/furniture that could be stored off-site rather than in-house? That way, you could gain valuable workspace.

Share what is already there

If you are preparing for moving offices into one shared space, the above-mentioned approach alone might not be sufficient to create the required room. Sharing of equipment and furniture can save additional space, e.g.

  • copy machines
  • conference tables and chairs

Redesign the existing space

Redesigning the layout of the rooms is a more radical approach to consolidating offices. It is certainly one that requires the most planning. One example of such measures would be converting several smaller rooms into an open floor plan or cubicle system.

This can be very effective when additional staff and their workspaces need accommodation. However, it is important to consider the advantages as well as disadvantages of such an open concept regarding potential issues like:

  • confidentiality and privacy
  • noise level

Ask the experts

Architects and interior designers are the kind of experts to consult when you need to remodel/convert the rooms to fit your requirements.
