The company is growing and business is booming. Up until now you’ve been working out of a small rented space but as you become more popular and you’re turning a decent profit, you’ve found that that’s just not enough space to meet the demand you’ve worked up. You will also need to take on additional staff now that you’re a bigger company, so it’s important that you find somewhere to put them – and reasonably quickly so you don’t have to turn away potential business in the meantime. |
Often when people are looking for industrial premises they will make the mistake of going too big too quickly. While some properties obviously look better than others, they will also come with a bigger price tag which could well put them out of your reach. If you sign a lease on a property like this and your company doesn’t grow rapidly enough to fill it, you will find that you might not be taking enough money to pay your rent, and therefore your whole business could collapse as a result.
If you’re looking for industrial premises such as office space, consider no further forward than your next year. There’s no point planning for the long term if it means paying for space you can’t use and probably can’t afford either. Hot desking is a great solution for smaller and growing companies as it means you’re able to rent industrial premises on a per person basis. This means that your office space can grow with you without the hassle of having to find new property whenever you need to take on new members of staff and grow departments. Once your growth has stabilised, and you have reached what might the perfect number of staff for your business, you can begin to look for industrial premises based on their specific size. This is a really common way of finding the perfect space, and you can even buy which can be cheaper when you’re looking for a more permanent solution to your space dilemma. Consider just how much space you need, and make sure you have considered the furniture and the space that will take up. It’s a good idea to bring a tape measure with you so you can gauge just how much space each desk will take up within a room or building. It’s very easy to think a space is much bigger and more usable when it’s empty, and guessing is rarely a good or successful idea.
