This space calculator has been developed to assist prospective tenants with comfortable, yet effective space utilisation.

The efficiency of space utilisation is influenced by factors such as tenant-specific requirements, design and positioning of an office building , size of floor plates , future growth, and a full investigation is necessary before any conclusive requirement can be finalised.

The results gleaned from the Office Space Assessment, will enable the user to brief Elevation Properties as to the approximate size of their requirements. Elevation Properties will select various options and create a shortlist of suitable premises to cater for the prospective user's needs.

This exercise will be done as a free service to selected companies.
