We believe in getting started on the right foot. Putting a solid strategy in place at the beginning is the best way to maximise the potential of your space and ensure your team is happy and productive for the long-term future. Workplace consultancy helps you identify ways to get the most out of your new office so your workforce feels empowered.
We start with a thorough audit of your workspace, looking at how your team works, what helps and hinders them, your KPIs, and the opportunities of the space itself. Our creative team can open your eyes to alternative ways of working, technological integrations, and sustainable functionality. We'll work with you to make your vision tangible.
Tell us your ideas, plans, or business goals, and we’ll work our magic to ensure you get the most out of this essential exploratory stage.
To maximise the potential for your project, we start with a work-study. This enables us to understand how your business operates at the moment and helps us uncover opportunities for improvement.
We’ve been working with clients to explore and plan their best working environments since 2000. With us on your team, you have access to extensive design, fit out, and construction experience.
We always look for new ways to approach workplace design. We’ll take your vision and view it through multiple creative perspectives to open up new doors for highly effective solutions.
Every great project starts with strategy. Our work investigating and reviewing the potential of your workspace enables us to put together a robust forward plan to amplify the potential of your environment.
Today, businesses have many different ways of working: some employees prefer to work remotely, some in the office, and some, do a combination of both.
We must understand what gives employees wellbeing at work and what they need in order to reach their potential. We work with business owners to identify the positive and negative aspects of in-office working perceived by their team, and find solutions to adapt their office spaces consciously.
Workplace consultancy is about optimising your workspace. This is unique for every organisation and depends on your current workspace’s strengths and weaknesses as well as your objectives and vision. From increasing productivity to creating a memorable impression of your brand, there are many possibilities. We usually start by getting to know you, your team, and your business.
We offer a holistic approach to workplace consultancy, which aims to uncover people-centric solutions through four lenses: people, space, technology, and workplace wellbeing.
Improving your workspace design can help your team reach their potential, harness creativity and productivity, increase ROI, and boost your brand's reputation.
Going even further, improving the design of your space can help you to make the right, environmentally-conscious decisions by reducing harmful emissions. Sustainability specialists like Area can help you put these positive changes in place for the long term.
We conduct workplace strategy at RIBA stages 0–1 (design and briefing). Workplace strategy aims to ensure your workspace is built on future-proof foundations. Through data gathering, leadership visioning, and engagement workshops, we produce a 360-degree workplace strategy report that will inform our design, planning, and execution to ensure your space can anticipate and adapt to change.
Through data-led analysis, we can understand the essence of your company culture. This helps us identify the right solutions for each individual business we work with.
It’s difficult for many businesses to understand precisely how to deliver what their workforces want. Our data shows that 85% of employees want to be in the office to collaborate, but 90% want to retain a level of flexibility, too.
Through workplace consultancy, business leaders can discover and learn many innovative ways to meet their team’s needs and wants while optimising productivity and wellbeing.
