Once you’ve decided to build a new office, or move to existing space, start planning your move right away. Completing an orderly move on time depends on thorough planning well in advance. The “to do” list includes an amazing number of tasks, many of them interrelated.
For example, carefully write out each telephone extension number’s location on your blueprints and insist that your electrical subcontractor mark every outlet box accordingly. You’ll simplify the telephone installer’s job this way, and you’ll save time and money.
Getting a jump on planning will help prepare you for the inevitable mistakes and bad luck that come with complex projects. Starting early buys you extra time if a supplier delivers the wrong item, or if a critical piece of equipment is backordered.
