Office Space Planning & Design

Office space planning and design involves the maximisation of office interior space whilst taking into account the need to create a productive, pleasant working office environment. Whether redesigning your present office interior space or moving into new offices, office space planning and design helps create the appropriate environment for your specific business needs.

Office space planning is a LockwoodHume speciality. Your office can have all the style in the world (which we will happily give you).

But if the M.D. ends up working in the toilet with three new recruits and new equipment has to be delivered through the office roof…well…what’s the point?

When planning the best way to lay out your office space, we listen to you about the needs of your business today, but we also look at future requirements so that any designs we produce encompass these as well.

We use the latest office space planning design and software along with our years of experience and a good portion of common sense when designing working plan for your office space. We are also fully conversant with current guidelines and regulations and can make sure that your project is fully compliant.

So can carry on doing what you're good at and let us get on with what we're good at!

Next we take all that information and by utilisation of modern office space planning techniques, expertise and contemporary design flair. Taking into account latest legislation we ensure the optimisation of your available space.

You will be provided with detailed drawings, visual aids, finish colour boards, and once these are approved firm costs.

Your office refurbishment project is important to us…

We need to make sure that your business is not adversely effected in way whilst you improve your environment

We undertake to manage your project no matter how big or small so you can carry on your core business.

We will set realistic budgets and timescales to complete your office project with the minimum of fuss and disruption

We will make sure that everything is done in the correct order, ensuring that the electricians are finished before the decorators start, the decorators are finished before the flooring is laid and that the flooring is laid before the furniture is installed. Get the picture?

Oh and we even keep an eye on the telephone people to make sure you have lines ready when you are.

And that’s not all…..

Will the sun shining through the window be a problem? Are the electric sockets in the right place and are there enough of them? Will the Printer fit up the stairs? Where are we going to put the table tennis table?
