It’s easy to buy off plan; walk into any showroom or estate agent, and they will be able to show you beautiful drawings of what your potential new office space or warehouse is going to look like. It will be glamorous and impressive, and it will, in the majority of cases, persuade you to buy that particular unit.
But before you do – before you get carried away by the artist’s impression and what it could be like – think again. Are you really seeing what you need to see? Can your business really work (and more importantly thrive) in the space you’re contemplating? Or will it be too late once everything is signed and you finally see the space for the first time, and there will be nothing you can do about it.
That’s why walking around a building such as a steel structure is always a good idea. You can get a true sense of the space you’ll be working with – figures on a blueprint aren’t as useful as literally walking the length of a building with a tape measure and mentally fitting all of your equipment and people into it. These are things that can’t be guessed, so walking around a real building always has to give you the best outlook.
Not only that, but steel buildings can be built to your specifications, so if you take a tour around one that almost works, simply by speaking to an expert you could have one that really works, whether you need a higher ceiling, more windows, or a larger space altogether.
Speaking of windows, what about a skylight? With a steel building you can have one – or two, or three! Or maybe you would consider having white lined composite panels on the walls, reflecting the light and giving you the optimum space for working in. A brighter appearance can make all the difference, and no amount of plans will be able to show you exactly how great the light is going to look.
If you are looking for a cost effective yet high standard office or warehouse space, consider using a steel building. They are affordable, they’re flexible, and you can take a look around one right now; perfect for discovering more and learning whether these are right for you.
