Moving INTO new London office space? Here’s a handy 18 point checklist

Moving into new London office space can be an overwhelming experience – there are so many items to remember, is frighteningly easy to overlook something important . This list isn’t all-inclusive (and not all items may be relevant to your needs), but it’s a useful starting point.

Checklists are proving to be an ongoing theme here at Find a London Office. We’re big fans of them: if you want your move to be as smooth as possible, we cannot recommend them highly enough.

  1. Building survey: is one required?
  2. Survey of mechanical and electrical equipment: is one required?
  3. IT and Telecoms: who will provide and install this?
  4. Fibre: Does fibre already come into the building / office and who is providing it?
  5. Satellite dishes: do you need them?
  6. Data supplier do you need more than one?
  7. Furniture: do you already have enough? Can you source more?
