Floor Space Analysis & Maximising Profit

The property strategy and how floor space is utilised forms the foundation for rolling out the business’s strategic objectives for the next 3-5 years and beyond. Elements of the business that are potentially impacted by how the space is configured are:

  • The impact on sales and profit potential
  • Customer experience and satisfaction
  • Attracting and retaining high quality employees
  • Maximising operational productivity and output
  • Providing a base to develop a strong brand
  • Organisational culture of the business

At Your Leasing Co. we understand that not maximising the efficiency of the property strategy or utilising the footprint of the premises correctly will create a drag on the performance of the business.

We provide a consulting service that is designed to maximise the potential from your workspace. Whether you are starting out, scaling up, scaling down or relocating, it is critical to ensure that you are moving into the right amount of space and into the right location.

The steps we work through include:

1. Information Collection. We will spend some time with you to understand the business growth plans, customer and employee requirements, aesthetic and other soft elements that are important to developing or maintaining the organisational culture. We will also ask for the plans and dimensions for your existing space or for the new location and some basic financial information.

2. Profit Centre Analysis. After collecting the initial information, we can then prepare the profit centre analysis. This is an assessment of the income generating parts of the business, allocating the direct costs associated and then the indirect costs based on a methodology called ABC or Activity Based Cost analysis. The objective of this assessment is to ensure that the highest profit generating areas of the business have the right amount of space allocated to maximise overall profit for the business.

3. How Much Space Do You Need and How To Use It. This analysis provides a very good overview of how much space a business needs and how to allocate floorspace to various income generating and administrative areas of the business. This approach also accommodates growing organisations, as the forecasted growth requirements can be incorporated into the model and the analysis.

4. Profit Maximising Space. Based on the analysis, we will be able to work with you to configure the space in the most effective and efficient plan to give you the best possible starting position to achieve your organisational objectives.

Hear From Our Clients

I approached Mike for some advice on how to approach my landlord regarding my rental situation and the information he provided me was fantastic.

He looked at my turnover situation and gave me clear and concise advice as to how to approach the landlord and he also prepared a spreadsheet as to how much rent I needed to pay the landlord.

Mike also provide me information as to the process if the landlord was not willing to work with me.

In this difficult time for all small business when the last thing you want to worry about is the rent you need to pay you landlord. Mike’s understandings of the code of conduct and measured approach was second to none.

The time and work Mike saved me was amazing!

Your Leasing Co assisted me in March 2020 to renegotiate my lease. I’ve always gotten on ok with my landlord, however I felt quite intimidated and hesitant to ask for rent relief/reduction at the start of Covid.

Mike at your leasing co walked me through it step by step in a patient and simple manner. He even helped me draft the email.

I’m pleased to say that through Your Leasing Co’s coaching and structured process, I no longer have any hesitations to present a strong case to my landlord for relief/ reduction of commercial rent.

Kelly Cunningham originally helped us with a rent re-negotiation on our business premises some years ago. Then when the next review was due, she gave us advice that we could do substantially better by not renewing the lease. We took her advice and asked her to locate an alternative premise that would suit us in all respects.

The result of the search Kelly did for us and her negotiations with the new landlord on our behalf was that we were able to relocate the whole business to more appropriate premises with everything we needed including much better staff and client parking. Plus, the best thing of all - Kelly secured a much lower rental cost for us.

I would have no hesitation to engage Kelly’s services again for any help with our commercial premises leasing. I highly recommend her to anyone needing advice with lease terms, negotiations with landlords or location of alternative commercial premises.

Amanda and I would like to thank Kelly and Mike for the fantastic and professional job they did for us in extremely testing times. To run any business, we all face difficult situations, but to try to fund a Beauty Clinic in Melbourne during lockdown is something of another story. Kelly and Mike were always hard but fair to our Landlord and all parties were satisfied in the end.
Thanks again

I was stuck with what I needed for my business and the options she was able to give me, helped me have more clarity in my leasing and where I stand with my Landlord. Thank you very much for the time you took to read go through my lease and take my calls and emails out of office hours. Will definitely recommend Kelly and Your Leasing Co and would use them in future where needed. Thanks Kelly.
