Young employees between 20-35 years value flexibility, choice and experience. Having an office design that matches their needs fuels the retention of those already working and attracts talent in the needed areas across the company.
The experience at the workplace will influence productivity of staff, catalyze cultural shifts and determine the quality of corporate strategy.

Today’s technological advancements have hugely influenced how work-spaces are managed. Artificial Intelligence has and is increasingly automating tasks, which are process driven, making way for more of the creative design and development roles which are creating new jobs and a more diverse type of worker.
New workers will push for workplace user experience as a priority for any organization. This means higher specification core locations will be used to attract right skills and expertise.
Although connectivity is very important when it comes to your office design, so too is your access to amenities as this also influences the overall office design and location. In some of the latest office designs, this can mean coffee areas for breaks, flexible meeting areas, game rooms, nursing areas, training rooms. In terms of the location, being near restaurants, shopping areas and good transport services are the types of things new workers will be looking out for.
Complete Office Renovation Services
Smart planning in the early stages increases your chances for a successful office renovation. Proactive planning can be very helpful in sidestepping the headaches that might otherwise plague a remodeling and/or expansion project. Follow these five steps to help the renovation process flow smoothly.
Be Clear About Your Goals
Ask yourself these questions and try to address each area that concerns you.
What is the main reason driving the renovation (e.g. infrastructure updating, installation of new technology, overhaul and upgrade of finishes, change of tenant, changes in how the space is to the function, or you just want to make the space aesthetically more pleasing)?
Do you intend to continue work while the renovations take place? if you do intend to work while renovation take place, will work be done in a phased plan? Are there any issues that will impact the schedule of the project?
What is the budget for the project? Does it include all available funds? Have you created a budget that will cover contingencies?
Have you addressed the planning or regulations that will impact the renovations?
Office Renovation Cost Efficiency
Right from the outset, you can make cost saving by involving the general contractors. This will ensure accurate test-fit budgeting and maximize cost efficiency. A good office fit out or renovation contractor can give valuable input on the project’s preliminary budget. They also can validate, in practical early design concepts and perform value engineering before a design is finalized or construction begins.
When soliciting proposals for the designer and general contractor, it’s important to look for firms that are experienced in the specific type of renovation work that the project entails. During the interview process, ask for specifics on budgets, schedules, and change orders for the contractors’ past renovation projects. Be sure to obtain references from past clients and check them carefully.
It’s always a good idea to conduct an evaluation of existing conditions. Make a comprehensive list covering:
The condition of all the electrical and mechanical systems.
The internal/external condition of the building and its ability to support any renovations.
The quality of all the existing utilities.
Review any past site evaluations that were carried out.
As much as possible, try to be sure that you can operate within your budget by carrying out a preliminary site evaluation. A lot of unforeseen costs can be uncovered during construction (e.g. where harmful asbestos may have been used in original construction, lead, or toxic mold caused by water intrusion) can bring the renovation to a halt and could lead to a costly redesign.
