STRATEGIC SPACE PLANNING / FACILITIES PLANNING


Location Studies / Site Development / Planning / Brief Development / Building Modeling

What is Strategic Space Planning?

Strategic Space Planning is having a clear and concise understanding, through very detailed information gathering, of what space, in terms of size, type and arrangement, is required by an organisation to accommodate their staff and organisational requirements. This is applicable to the development of new buildings as well as re-organisation and refurbishment of existing accommodation.

Why is Strategic Space Planning important?

After salaries, rent and building operating costs are the highest overhead expense for any organisation. Huge savings can be achieved if the premises are planned, re-organised and managed efficiently. Strategic Space and Facilities Planning are equally important when planning and constructing a new building and refurbishing or rearranging existing premises, and should
not be viewed in isolation. Our in-depth knowledge of strategic space and facilities planning in corporate environments
ensures the client receives the best advice and service possible at all times

COMMERCIAL SPACE PLANNING

Business Unit Studies / Space & Building Modelling / Furniture Design/Furniture, Fittings and Equipment Procurement / Installation and Move Management

What is Space Planning?

Space Planning is the arrangement of floor areas with new or existing furniture, in the most space effective and functional manner to accommodate the functional, spatial and organisational needs of the Client.
Efficient and functional space planning standards and policies must be established, and must be applied throughout the organisation to ensure that the planning completed is implemented though the premises on an ongoing basis.

Why is Space Planning important?

Less space used by an organisation equals less rent and less running costs, but equally important is that the layout must be functional to make the organisation run effectively, while providing workplace environments that support user wellbeing.

  • An efficient floor layout will save space, thereby saving costs.
  • An effective floor layout will allow easy churn, at minimal cost.
  • A functional floor layout will allow the business to run effectively.

CHURN MANAGEMENT / OUTSOURCED CLIENT SITE SPACE PLANNING

Set up accurate drawing bases / Churn Space Planning / Co-ordination of all Site Contractors / In-house Space Planning Services / Rentals and Leasing Advisory / Asset Management / Move Management

What is Churn Management?

Churn Management is managing the day to day rearrangement of spaces in an office environment due to changes in the organisation due to staff allocation, personnel growth, organisational changes and shrinkage.

Why is Churn Management important?

Effective Churn Management allows space planning standards and policies to be maintained. If Churn Management is not regulated and closely managed, premises can quickly become disorganised, and dysfunctional, ultimately incurring unnecessary costs and inefficient space use.

BI Architects and Space Planners are able to provide outsourced churn management services whereby we provide larger organisations with staff located off-site at Client premises, to work closely with Facilities and HR personnel for efficient implementation of churn management throughout their organisation.
