What is an Occupancy Survey?

For many organisations, space is one of the most expensive items they have. So ensuring you use every square metre to its full potential while giving your occupants the space that is fit for purpose to fulfil their role is essential.

An occupancy survey can identify how space is being used and its key assets and provide details on how that space can be better used. This can decrease the area you use, reduce costs, and allow for efficient space management. Whether you are looking to use existing space better, move to remote working, or reduce the amount of space you lease, a space survey is key to the project’s success.

With Covid changing the way we use and maintain our estate, good space management will ensure you can achieve your end goal, resulting in efficient space management. You will be able to timetable classes efficiently, plan desks and staff in offices, even complete a higher level of cleanliness by knowing which zones have increased usage and are likely to require special attention for cleaners- all essential with the government measurements introduced since Covid guidelines.

Our experienced surveyors will work with you to understand the purpose of the survey and build a detailed scope and approach that meets your needs.

“Sircle have been providing the University with survey and CAD services for several years following on from an initial survey of the academic spaces. Over the years they have been reappointed to conduct surveys of the student residential accommodation and several other areas. I would recommend Sircle to any university wanting a surveying or CAD service.”
