The right office space can be key component of your business success – it affects productivity, the perception of your business among your customers and staff and, ideally, should provide the capacity to scale your business as it grows.

We’ve recently acquired office space in Chester which ticks all the boxes – Red Hill House, Saltney.

To help you with your search for the perfect office space, we’ve put together a checklist for you to use when looking for your next office environment.

Space

This may seem like the easiest consideration of them all but actually, there’s more to looking at an office and judging whether or not the space is suitable. At Red Hill House we can help you plan the space and the floorplan to help you judge how many people an office can accommodate. Furthermore, many offices can come furnished, helping you visualise straight away how this space can work for your business.

At Red Hill House, there are offices that accommodate 2 – 12 people so there should be something to suit any need. With a range of office sizes, if your business needs change and you grow or downsize, you shouldn’t need to relocate as we can accommodate you. The innovative layout with interconnecting doors gives you the flexibility to change your office space.

Facilities

Finding office space with a range of facilities can be pivotal for creating an enjoyable working environment. What do you need? What does your staff expect? Tea and coffee facilities, full kitchen facilities, meeting space, a concierge, break out areas? Every business is different, which is why Red Hill House in Chester has a variety of facilities to meet any need.

It has an on-site reception which enables meet and greet services for your guests plus a postal and call answering service – this could save you a salary! The offices are arranged around communal air-conditioned atriums so there is space for staff to take a break and there are kitchen facilities on every floor.

Meeting rooms are available to hire for staff meetings or board meetings – giving you the opportunity to use this facility when you need it rather than having to rent it all the time as part of your core office space.

Neighbours

You might think that other businesses don’t matter but there are a lot of considerations here. Are they competitors? Are they a typically noisy type of business which could be disruptive or are they a complimentary company? It could make a huge difference to your day-to-day operation if you don’t get this right.

For example, Red Hill House is a wonderful environment filled with a wide range of businesses both large and small as well as charities. There’s a great sense of community between the existing occupiers and the available office space will enable you to relocate stress free.

Parking

This first question should be, is there parking available? For your employees and customers this could be the difference between starting the day well and having a good experience with you and it being memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Once you’ve ascertained whether or not there is parking, the next question should be, is there AMPLE parking? As we said, Red Hill House ticks all the boxes and does have extensive on-site parking. This includes dedicated parking spaces for each office.

Local amenities

You often find office staff like to use their own time wisely. Having access to local shops, gyms, bars and restaurants mean they have options for their lunch breaks and can enjoy some social time a bit more freely. Our Red Hill House office space in Chester is a fantastic location. It’s less than 2 miles to the west of Chester city centre and is surrounded by shops, trade counters, cafes and more.
