Business itself is fluid but physical facilities generally are not: business may take a decision to implement a new process or division today and the systems, processes and people necessary may only take a month or two to be ready to implement, but changing the bricks and mortar of the building to meet the new need may take much longer. Ensuring that the built environment meets business needs today and into the future is often critical to the long-term success of a company.
Forward planning to take business growth or down-sizing into account helps ensure that facilities are aligned to the changing needs of business. Furthermore, when companies merge or split (usually through mergers and acquisitions), there is often a need to either separate or bring together facilities and operations in a cohesive way.
Having facilities that constantly grow, shrink or change to meet business needs is complex and can only be executed successfully with skillful planning that takes into account current and future business needs, risks, constraints and dependencies. We can help in developing appropriate project plans that ensure facilities can change whilst maintaining service delivery.
