Building Appraisal

Independent impartial advice on aligning your organisation with commercial real estate, to maximize users' well-being, experience and to reduce real estate costs.


We are a specialist workplace consultancy studio and independent of commercial real estate allowing us to provide unbiased open honest advice on finding and/or aligning your workspace for your business and users' needs.

Our Process 

Looking for a new workspace? 
It all starts at the very beginning. Working closely with you from the start we get to know your business and requirements and provide independent professional workplace consultancy advice on which building works best for your business while identifying potential costs early on. We produce a detailed building appraisal report based on your shortlisted spaces. Some of the info we provide includes:

  • Space plans to show how well your organisation aligns with the building.
  • A cost plan on potential Fit-Out & FFE.
  • Reports on M&E systems.
  • A list of issues that would be the landlord’s responsibility to rectify.
  • A report on natural light, ventilation, and quality of views.

The Commercial Agent will advise on building facts such as rent, rates, and service charges. We provide professional workplace consultancy support, giving you an independent and objective comparison. That way, you have the confidence and support to decide which property is best suited to your needs and budget.

Does your building fit your occupancy brief?

Our building appraisals leave you completely in the know so that you are informed and confident throughout. To help you visualise the results, we can provide block plans and space plans to show you how each building may come to life.

We can also advise you on likely fit-out costs, construction timescales and base build features, such as air conditioning, fire glazing, building control and DDA compliance. Not necessarily the sexy stuff, but the very important stuff.

We organise the surveys to safeguard your commitment:

  • General Building Survey
  • M&E Survey (always an issue)
  • Structural Survey
  • Building longevity

All of this information puts us in a clued-up position to be able to assist your Agent in negotiating the best deal for your office space.

What that means for you?

  • Contracts can be exchanged with due diligence.
  • Important data is gathered on natural light and fresh air.
  • Plenty of opportunities to negotiate better terms.
  • Clear comparisons can be drawn against other buildings.
  • Potential issues are identified and costs are gathered early on.
  • Space plans can be tested to see how well you align with the building.
  • Specialist open honest, independent advice.
  • Reveals the best building based on your needs, well-being and budget.

You can exchange contracts with due diligence, fully confident that your building will work for you - all completely within the budget!
