On the Hunt: The Perfect Office

Serviced Office SpaceIt’s easy to know what you want for your office location, the tricky part is actually finding it. A recent article, 4 office space red flags to think twice about by Justin Lee offers 4 helpful tips to be on the lookout for as you search for the perfect office.

Before you sign any leases, be sure to tour the facility and take careful notes of the following signs:

  1. How will Guests be Welcomed?

A lobby without a receptionist to answer calls and queries will surely give visitors negative impressions as they first visit your office. Is there a comfortable waiting area for guests to wait, if they arrive early to their appointment? The lobby is a client’s first impression of your business, it should have a professional operation and appearance.

  1. Getting Around.

Take note of the elevator to occupant ratio, based on the traffic flow of the building. Lack of elevators can cause lines to form, especially in the morning, and at lunch hour. Clients and visitors should have easy access around the facility at all times of the day.

  1. Maintenance.

If the building has shabby hallways, broken fixtures, and unkept bathrooms, it would be safe to assume that building is poorly managed. Poor maintenance gives clients the impression that a business is unreliable and incompetent.

  1. Current Tenants.

It’s definitely worth viewing the tenant directory to see who is already working in the building. It’s important to make sure that the tenants you share the building with don’t negatively affect your business.

Conclusion

Don’t settle. If you can’t find an office building that meets your needs, consider hiring a business service prodiver.
