OCCUPIER STRATEGY

 

Every business is different. Understanding why is the key to making space fit for purpose.

 

Efficiency studies. Workplace protocols. Change management. Building selection.

 

We work with occupiers to gain a clear picture of their space, work practices, organisational culture, values and brand.

 

We add our experience and expertise on best practice and latest trends, and create a road map for how they want to work in the future.

 

We collaborate with our designers and technical experts. Together we translate concepts into workspace reality that supports individual and business performance, business aspirations and brand.

DISCOVER

Finding out about you.

Space audits, stakeholder interviews and numerical analysis provide qualitative and quantitative information.

DEFINE

Helping articulate your needs.

Workshops, discussions and building tours produce strategic space requirements and design criteria: the Strategic Brief.

DELIVER

Applying what we've learned.

Potential buildings are shortlisted, test fits are carried out and technical teams use the strategic brief to ensure design is fit for purpose.

DEVELOPER STRATEGY

 

Before the market asks costly questions, we find the answers.

 

Because we know what occupiers want, we know what developments need.

 

To ensure buildings incorporate what occupiers value, we take their perspective, then draw on our expertise to translate their needs to architects and technical teams.

 

We test fit and evaluate schemes and consider occupational densities to optimise floorplate efficiency for target occupiers. We collaborate on core placement and effective M&E integration. We benchmark buildings against competitors.

DESIGN

 

Cat A Fit Out & Cat B Interior Architecture

 

We understand that interior architecture affects every aspect of life and business: space should enhance what we do, and how we want to be.

 

We listen to our clients talk about their lives and business before we design their space.

 

From brief to build, our designs ensure space fit for purpose, from welcoming client receptions to flexible ceiling configurations.

 

Every project starts from first principles, quality and attention to detail. Our focus is always client value.

COLLABORATE

What inspires you, inspires us.

We develop an understanding of your business and our design goals in vision workshops and on building tours. Your preferences will guide the design direction.

CONCEIVE

Bringing it all together

Business requirements are integrated with selected materials and styles into detailed interior designs.

CREATE

Making sure it happens

We spend to optimise the impact of your budget with a partner-led service on finishes and furniture, specification and sustainability.

MOVE MANAGEMENT

 

Change management is achieved by a full understanding of client concerns and working closely with the client both pre- and post-move to develop protocols and manage the change process.

 

Our move management experience has ensured that many clients have occupied their new space seamlessly. Close coordination with client, landlord, main contractor and service providers along with a proactive approach is the key to our project success.

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

 

Learn from the past, evaluate the present and apply to the future!

 

Good real estate decisions are informed decisions. The focus of our research & analysis is on identifying and addressing the issues that make property decisions complex and problematical.

 

Specialist expertise of KKS partners and associates includes sustainability, base build specification and law firm workspace evolution.

 

Our aim is to create valuable, practical outputs that developers, occupiers and architects need to resolve them.

 

We believe in completing the full circle of strategy, design and thought leadership. Each project should inform the next.

RESEARCH

With five generations in employment we are keen to understand what today's teenagers are expecting from tomorrow's work places and how advances in technology are effecting yesterdays baby boomers.

BENCHMARKING

With hundreds of projects under our belt we don't let all the available data go to waste. We measure and analyse everything from base building components to occupancy ratios, and work space type percentages to meeting room booking data.

KKS INDEX

A tool used to compare commercial or residential buildings against each other based on seven performance indicators - building capacity, natural light, regularity, core configurations, office banding, working neighbourhoods and sub-divisibility.

POST OCCUPANCY EVALUATION

The final and most important part of any project is to look back, analyse and evaluate how well a space has performed and how satisfied a client is. At KKS we regularly revisit our clients & project in the following 6, 12 & 24 months after completion.

SPEAKING & SEMINARS

KKS Partners and Associates regularly attend, host and speak at industry events to gain insights from other practices and educate other professionals with our insights.
