See the future. Our computer-aided design bureau can give you a dazzling view of how an interior can work and maximise return on rental.

From complete furniture and equipment inventories, to producing current office layouts and devising future office space plans, Space-pod offers a complete space planning solution for the modern business.

It’s not always easy to imagine how the interior of a building could look or be adapted. Sometimes you cannot even be sure that a building is going to be suitable for its desired purpose.

As qualified interior designers with state-of-the-art computer-aided-design systems, we can develop extremely practical and easy-to-understand internal drawings so you can see various options.

Many organisations regularly call on the fast and cost-effective services of our CAD Bureau to help them envisage various possibilities. This can be particularly useful where clients need to decide which property or layout is likely to be most suitable. 
We can also scientifically point-score each option to help the decision-making process. Similarly, commercial estate agents often use our CAD Bureau to help their clients get a better idea of the suitability of a site, a service that frequently helps to close a sale.

Commercial Interior Design & Space Productivity Needs analysis

To ascertain your current productivity issues we investigate how your organisation functions, observing how people interact with their environment.

After an initial survey we discuss our findings and ascertain how they compare to other organisations and procedures with a view to maintaining what works well and improving the areas that require input.

This information is normally input into a document or drawing package that can then be used as a starting point for any other work that is required.

Maximising return-on-rental with Commercial Interior Design & Space Productivity

One of the key aims of our space-planning team is to ensure that we deliver a scheme that fundamentally underpins your mid and long-term business objectives, whilst maximising every square foot of floor space to ensure that you get the best return on your rental.

We work closely with you to assess how effective your existing premises are. Perhaps you are considering relocation, maybe you’ve run out of space.

We can do an initial ‘Occupancy Survey’ that looks at your current site against key criteria to establish if you do need to move or may in fact be able to remain where you are by re-stacking your current space or introducing new ways of working or taking advantage of off-site archival storage.

We also look to maximise the height available, specifically with storage and filing to ensure again that every square foot is being utilised as efficiently as possible.

Commercial interior design & space productivity evaluation

Free property evaluation
Space-pod is able to work with organisations that are considering relocating. Our input works in two ways. First, we evaluate your current premises to appraise how they meet with your current criteria and by careful planning we can often accommodate your requirements within your existing premises.

Secondly, when you know you have to move and are evaluating alternate premises we can prepare trial schemes on your short-listed buildings against a pre-determined set of criteria that underpin your business objectives. Taking this exercise forward, we can then point-score each of the premises against each other to give a mathematical output of which building is most suitable for you.

Building & Location constraints
Often we find that the ideal building/location does not exist when we are evaluating buildings against your criteria. We are able to work within the building or location constraints by providing intelligent well-thought-out schemes that can make the best of any location, whatever the circumstances.

Staff morale
The morale of your personnel is one of the most significant factors to affect your business, its performance and productivity. We ensure that we listen to your people and integrate their requirements into our schemes so that there is a boost to morale and productivity when completed.

Regulatory controls
Whilst we are working with you to boost your productivity or re-design your premises, we ensure that we are up to date with current regulatory controls such as Building Control, Disability Discrimination Act requirements so that any suggestions that we make encompass the current regulatory requirements and also incorporate best practice.

Health and Safety requirements
When designing your office we make sure that we integrate all elements that impact on the health and safety of your personnel, ensuring that all elements of the scheme meet with or exceed current health and safety requirementsUK office desking health and safety requirements.

Recognised space standards
When designing your office interior, we adhere to recognised space standards that ensure that your personnel have appropriate furniture, storage and room for them to work efficiently within their environment. By using recognised planning modules, we can plan the most efficient use of your office space and maximise your return on office rental costs.

Do the office bin challenge

Most office bins cost about £5, but on one space evaluation that we did, the actual cost of the space that each bin took-up was a staggering £288 every year, before we helped them to plan their office space much more effectively.

Space-pod will work with you and utilise our computer-aided design bureau to give you a dazzling view of how an interior can work best to maximise the space and the return on rental.
