Space Utilisation Survey

The goal of a Space Utilisation Survey (SUS) is to establish an accurate baseline of current utilisation. It identifies opportunities for efficiencies, and the data provided can be used to build a case for optimising the use of space thereby providing an environment that supports your staff in what they actually need rather than what they perceive is required.

It is extremely important that we are able to accurately calculate the actual use of your space in order to offer best advice on what is needed. The average office occupancy rate in the UK (before Covid 19) was around 65%; however, most British businesses allocate desks on a 1 desk/person model. Having reliable and accurate data gives you the strategic insight to best manage your real estate portfolio, usually a company's second largest expense item (behind its staff).

Prepare to think about your workspace in terms of:

It is likely that Covid 19 will see a development in the use of the SUS. We are expecting many businesses to see a permanent increase in staff wanting to work from home for at least part of the week, and this will mean utilisation of offices will be increased inline with the agile model required to support them.
