The top things to consider when looking for new London offices
There are a number of things that organisations need to think about before making the move into new London offices and space in other UK regions.

Such is the opinion of British Council for Offices (BCO) chief executive Richard Kauntze, who stated the first question that should be asked is why a new building is required. This is frequently forgotten about, with businesses often just making the move without taking their specific requirements into consideration.

Another point highlighted was to ensure the London offices selected are flexible to accommodate the changing needs of a firm.

"It's not good for any business to get locked into any situation that will be rigid and not flexible, which will tie them down in any way, because businesses change very quickly," Mr Kauntze explained, pointing to the example of Google, which started in a tiny premises and has now become a market leader in a relatively short space of time.

He added a property can hugely impact on the performance of a company, so it is important the right building is chosen.

The search engine giant has its UK headquarters in Belgrave House at Buckingham Palace Road, SW1. Recognising the importance of flexible space, it announced last year it was opening east London offices in Tech City UK to help start-up enterprises find their feet.
