Space planning is the process of working out how your office space can be utilised in the most effective & efficient manner.  Based on your current & future growth requirements we can calculate how much space you will require.  You will be presented with space plan diagrams showing overall layouts of your new office tenancy or medical practice which may include workstation sizes and circulation space, treatment room layouts etc.
