It's time for your company to grow, and whether you're moving to a new location or renovating an existing space, there are some important aspects to consider and discuss when selecting the best building location for your company.

 

When fitting an existing structure for your needs, some types of buildings can work better than others. The building itself needs to be in working order: efficient and usable for the people inside. Take into consideration the technology upgrades the building will need along with its materiality and structure. It is important to acknowledge the structure in the building, and whether it will be able to withstand new units on the roof or around the exterior of the building. 

 

The building parameters are important, as are the possible people you will be working with, such as landlords and your own staff. It is important as a company to select a site that relates to and mirrors your company values along with your staff's needs. A basic consideration is their location and proximity to the potential new site. Is it valuable to your company to have public transportation, cycling trails, pedestrian paths, and/or a designated parking area? Choosing a site close to your industry partners could also help with business and impact your site selection.

 

If the site is unbuilt upon, you have to be sure to think about the ease of getting power and water to the location. If large equipment or frequent deliveries will be made to the building, you need to consider freight and delivery access to the site.
