Strategic Facilities Planning

Creative Office has a facilities/project management department created to assist you with Strategic Facilities Planning services. SFP starts with the assessment of present day office conditions. This information is used to intelligently plan the optimum usage and space efficiencies that you may foresee changing throughout the life of your company. SFP develops a wants/needs list, defines suitable real estate requirements and then configures your company operations to support the work flow within the space. The last step is to develop a projection of the potential growth of the company. A comprehensive plan will provide for space options into adjacent properties and the identification of departments likely to expand. The useful output of Strategic Facilities Planning are:

orders including component sourcing, rebuild priorities, employee move orders and tel/comm changes can be generated in written and diagrammatic form.

Asset Management & Inventory

Excess furniture and equipment can be inventoried and valued with recommendations for off site storage, reuse, trade-in, sale or disposal. Any future changes are planned using the available resources.
