Before you begin looking for an office, make a checklist of requirements you want and prepare a list of questions to ask yourself
Make a Check List
Do you need a decent location to have conferences with clients or are you simply searching for a space to house your team? Do you need a spot near your partners’ workplaces?
What impression would you like to make with your office? What would you like to show to your potential employees, clients and future partners?
How significant is it for you that the vehicle hubs are close by, as MRT and F&B? Plan ahead if you’re working for extended periods of time in this place or do you think that the team will be telecommuting and generally come in for meetings and conferences?
Plan and figure out how much space you need to house your team
Planning ahead how much room you need relies vigorously upon the sort of office and on what furniture will be there. Be that as it may, there are still some rough figures you can depend on in the absolute starting point. You need around 70 square feet for each individual. What will fit in 70 square feet? A working work area, a seat, and some air to relax. Having less space per individual is probably going to mean working elbow-to-elbow.
Are you going to have a big pantry for your team? Are you going to be building a time-out room for your team? or rather are you going to be housing a huge conference room for your clients? These are factors you’ll need to consider before getting an office space
Co-working space or renting an entire office yourself?
Coworking spaces have mushroomed in Singapore in the course of 3 years. They actually make up just 5% of Singapore’s total office space, yet finding a reasonable spot in Singapore has gotten simpler.
Coworking spaces are less expensive to rent in the recent years (under 1 year) when contrasted with 2–3 years for a customary office rent as you don’t need to burn through cash on office furniture and other fit-outs — you simply rent work areas or rooms and move in.
Coworking spaces are likewise a more adaptable choice: if your team extends, you can rent more work areas in a similar space as opposed to getting together your things the second you quit finding a way into a conventional office.
There are situations when it bodes well to consider choices going past cooperating spaces:
– you need a specific measure of distribution center space;
– you need your own corporate branding;
– you need to host a significant number of corporate clients routinely;
– protection and security is at the top of your priority list and you need to have full control.
On the off chance that something from the rundown rings a bell, you have an anticipated income stream just as a pretty much fixed headcount, at that point conventional office space is by all accounts a sensible choice for you.
