Any business premises needs to be arranged in just the right way to be organised, functional and productive, and it’s important to please visitors as much as employees. Once you’ve got your internal areas sorted it’s time to take a closer look at your outside space, because this can make all the difference to the overall impression as well as the level of practicality you’re able to achieve…

What equipment could you need?

There are plenty of different equipment options you might want to consider, with just a few of them being:

•    Bicycle shelters. Vital for those employees that cycle to work, these shelters provide safe and secure storage for expensive bikes. It’s vital you’re able to provide the necessary space and with cycling becoming more and more popular you could well need to expand your storage options.
•    Outdoor canopies. Having a canopy at the entrance to the building can be ideal—providing valuable protection from the elements and making that space inside the front door that little bit cleaner and less cluttered, an outdoor canopy can be used to great effect.
•    Bus shelters. If you’ve got particularly large premises you could well have a bus route running through the car park (for example), and that means you need to provide suitable shelters so patrons have a covered place to wait.
•    Covered walkways. Again suitable for larger premises where there could be a lot of separate but interconnected buildings, having a walkway that’s covered will be ideal—no-one will need to get caught in a downpour when making the commute, being ideal for employees as well as visitors.

From there you might need to start thinking about benches, smoking areas and other pieces of equipment that could be required—it’s all about making your outside space as usable and patron-focused as possible, and in doing so you’ll be able to make the right impression for maximum benefit to your business. You’ll want to consider patron comfort above everything else whilst paying close attention to their storage requirements, and as long as you carefully think about what they expect you’ll be able to devise a list to accommodate.
