OFFICE SITE SELECTION: Clients who are re-locating or searching for new office locations use office site selection studies. SIMON FOX & COMPANY planners meet with the client and develop a preliminary space program that includes the client's known functions and space requirements. It also outlines any special needs regarding building location, support requirements and economic constraints.

This program becomes the basis for a site search. Commercial real estate representatives will use it to locate potential locations. All sites fitting our preliminary criteria are subjected to a space planning test and presented to the client for review. This leads to a short list of alternatives and to lease negotiations.

It is important for the client to have his or her own representative during the preliminary planning phase. Our program injects control factors into the site selection process. It protects the client from leasing space that will not truly support the requirements of the company.

Fees for these services are charged on a square foot basis.

PLANNING SERVICES: Planning services are the next step in the office development process. Among this service group, is the development of the client's work letter. This is an outline of finish materials and details that will be used in the new office facility. It forms the basis for tenant improvements in lease negotiations and construction budgets. This is among the first items to be provided in the planning process.

Other services included are refinements in the preliminary space plan and more in-depth programming prior to the interior design process. Our planners perform detailed studies of your site paying special attention to re-useable assets from previous tenants and construction details. Inventories of re-useable furniture are done. A project budget is developed reviewed, revised and accepted prior to moving on to the design phase.

The goal of the planning process is to provide a conceptual outline of the function, aesthetics and cost of the office facility.
