Calculating How Much Space Your Business Needs

When your business is considering a move, or just starting out, you need to plan carefully when you calculate how much space you will need. Either too much or too little can have a dramatic impact on your bottom line, but there are some techniques you can use to determine exactly how much space you need. First, you need to assess your current situation, and then decide what are your expectations for the growth of your business over the next few years by considering the following questions:

  • How many people do I currently employ?
  • Does each employee need an individual desk or is sharing possible?
  • Do I expect to add any staff in the next couple of years?
  • Over what period of time will I add the staff?
  • What kind of staff will I be adding, executive, administrative, or sales?

In general, the amount of office space you need is estimated according to head count and your industry type. The customary range for office space is 150-350 square feet (SF) per person employed. It is the type of space you need to accommodate your business that plays a large part in narrowing that range.

At the lower end of the range is the open space plan, which has no private offices. Call centers and sales offices generally use this configuration and have desks or workstations grouped together. At the high end of the range is the traditional hard-wall or private office layout. Law offices, for example, almost all have private offices, large conference rooms, and support rooms such as libraries, kitchens and file rooms. But, for your foray into the office hunt, the general approach of using 250 square feet per person to estimate the amount of space you will occupy is a great place to begin.

Looking For New Office Space? Don’t Make These Mistakes

Following payroll expenses, facilities and related expenses are generally the second highest expenditure for a company. While people are naturally the most important asset to a company, real estate decisions should not be far behind. Too often though, companies fail to see the significance of real estate in the same light.
The impact real estate has goes far beyond the bottom line because it plays an important part in everything from employee retention to the level of productivity and workplace morale. It’s for these reasons that companies should always be cognizant when making real estate decisions.

The top mistakes that companies make when leasing space are:
• Waiting Too Long to Start The Process. The longer a tenant waits to start the process, the fewer the number of options that will be available to them. Waiting too long can mean that a tenant will pay more, receive less favorable lease terms, or that they are forced to leave and take less than desirable space elsewhere.
• Leasing The Wrong Amount of Space. Figuring out how much space to lease is not an exact science. Forecasting involves assumptions, which can often lead to costly mistakes if incorrect. Uncertain events notwithstanding, companies should take the time and effort to work with a space planner or architect to plan and program to determine the right amount of space to lease. With that information in hand, companies should then go one step further and think about the impact certain business scenarios would have on that number, the likelihood of those events happening, and adjusting the number so as to minimize the likelihood of taking down too much or too little space.
• Picking the Wrong Location. What may seem like the right location might in fact not be. Companies should consider things such as access, public transportation, demographics, zoning laws, and other factors to help identify the right location for their business.
• Not Thinking About The Future. Aligning a real estate plan with a corporate business plan is difficult to do when milestone events and setbacks do not always go according to plan. To help deal with the “unknown”, negotiating leases which provide both expansion and contraction rights to the extent possible is therefore instrumental. Companies need to go beyond the simple lease and think about sublease rights, expansion rights, rights to cancel, and options to extend.
• Not Measuring The Space. Companies should strongly consider verifying the landlord’s square footage numbers. In larger transactions, even a small difference can translate into a large savings. If it is not possible to measure the space, tenants should at least try to negotiate a tolerance in the measurement. Generally though, and per BOMA standards, a variance of up to 2% is acceptable.
• Signing Too Long or Too Short of a Lease. Companies often think that by signing a short lease they are buying themselves flexibility. That may be true in many cases, but that flexibility often comes at a price. On the flip side, tenant’s may feel a long term lease provides maximum stability, but there are far too many cases – particularly in Silicon Valley where swings in rent can be large – where long term leases signed at the height of the market have gone so far as to force companies into bankruptcy or caused severe harm to the company. It’s therefore imperative that companies take a long-term approach to real estate, while keeping short term trends and business activities in focus.
• Not Verifying Building Systems and Infrastructure. In today’s environment, data, power, networking, and HVAC capacity and availability are crucial. Tenants should ensure that buildings they intend on occupying are capable of providing the network connectivity and other building systems necessary for a tenant’s operation before signing any lease.
• Not Having Your Insurance Carrier Review the Lease Language. Tenants should always have their insurance carrier review the language within a lease that pertains to insurance and subrogation to verify that the insurance is not only attainable, but attainable at a reasonable cost. It is strongly recommended that the actual lease or lease language be sent to your insurance carrier for review before any lease is signed.
• Not Retaining Legal Counsel. By using an attorney well versed in the documenting of a real estate transaction, companies can help avoid ambiguity and errors which could lead to expensive litigation or legal wrangling down the road.

If you are looking for commercial real estate space and do not want to make one of the preceding mistakes then contact The Sundance Company and we can walk you through the process of procuring a great location for your business.

Office Space for Optimum Efficiency

Is your office space designed for optimum efficiency? Most of us spend the majority of our time cooped up in the office, which, more often that not is a small cubicle that doesn’t allow for privacy, space, creativity or inspiration. That’s why it’s important to personalize your workspace (or home away from home). Office space designs require a tremendous amount of thought and consideration. While there are many common approaches to designing office space, finding the right design that works for you and your employees could be the key to a successful business.

For instance, space plays a major role in efficiency. Think about the way a chef works in the kitchen. They have to be precise, quick and careful. In order to do this effectively, they have to have an organized mise en place, or space. A mise en place literally means “put in place” and refers to a chef’s station where they keep all of the items they need to prepare food. This triangular station allows them to stand in one spot, gather ingredients, pivot to one side and work at the stovetop.

The same concept can be applied to an office workstation. Here are some tips for office space design that can help you increase efficiency and quickness:

Open Office Space Designs
Many offices have converted to an open office space design to stimulate better communication among employees. There are, however, limits to what you can do to work spaces in an open office. The layout of office furniture becomes limited by the lack of office walls or cubicle partitions. When possible, choose to set up workstations in corner spaces so that each station has two walls. Then, use an L-shaped desk with a filing drawer to create a triangular space in which to work.

Private Office Space Designs
Some organizations find that by giving each employee a private office with a window, they increase morale and promote a sense of importance. In fact, the quality of this type of office design can have an impact on self-image, motivation and enthusiasm, creating an environment that raises productivity and efficiency. The downside to private offices is that they create a mentality that segregates employees as individuals. This lack of teamwork mindset can be solved with great design. By creating an “intersection” in the middle of the office where employees can meet, you can give your office a centralized feel that brings everyone together. This “intersection” can house things like fax and copy machines, message boards or work counters.

Designs with Floor to Ceiling Windows
Office designs with floor to ceiling windows provide a great amount of natural light and a tremendous view, but they can also pose some challenges for workspace layout. In this layout, desks are usually positioned on one wall, with a filing cabinet on the opposite wall. When possible, you should use utilize the wall space on the same wall as your door, or use an L-shaped desk to create a smaller workspace triangle.

Quite possibly the most crucial aspect of office space design is working with the right designer. Hire a good designer with whom you can freely share your opinions. Being able to point out the things you like and dislike will help the process more along more effectively. Plus, it allows both parties to be upfront with each other at all times, creating an environment where coordination and planning efforts are at their peak.
