One good tip is to make sure that you have an internal manager assigned to the coordination of the office workspace refurbishment or move.  You should also make use of the services of a commercial real estate agent to handle searching for and acquiring any new location.

You should interview a number of different design and building firms and find one that you believe you would be comfortable working with.  It is vital that you believe you can communicate effectively with those who are delivering the project, as this crucial to a timely and successful office move or refurbishment.  Once you have shortlisted a few contractors, invite them over to view and to estimate how much budget you would need for them to fulfill your requirements.

Once you have decided on your new premises or what refurbishments you feel are needed to your existing workplace, you should again meet with the design and building firm to fully confirm the brief and the budget.  Always make sure that you receive and check out references for the firm before you sign anything.
