What are my options when my business premises lease expires?
Hopefully, you’ve landed on this page because you are wondering what to do next?
With your business premises lease expiry or break nearing you’ll likely need to decide whether an office move, a refurbishment or a simple reorganisation makes the best sense?
Sit back, relax and grab a cuppa, we’ve got this covered.
Understanding your Objectives!
What we find is that with lease breaks and expiries, businesses tend to use these milestones to re-assess their working environment to understand if their current space is sufficient for the future. – It’s also a great opportunity to look at other office design/refurbishment drivers…
Other driving factors for an office refurbishment or move include: (but not limited to)
- Expansion, contraction, merger or acquisition.
- Business requirement to reduce overheads and increase profitability
- Business re-organisation, change in working practices
- New corporate branding & style
- Improving company culture
- Modernising & Future Proofing

Space occupancy study and audit
You may be surprised what space you could save once you find what’s lurking at the back of your cupboards. Storage can have a huge impact on space saving, and more often than not can be reduced with better storage solutions in place.
