Setting up the project

​Planning the successful delivery of workplace projects involves determining the appropriate requirements, getting the backing of leadership and making sure communication is prioritised.

Set the foundations for the project

Review your organisational goals, aspirations and objectives to determine the requirements of the workplace.

Our principles for good workplace design should be used to guide any government office workplace design and fit-out project.

Principles for good workplace design

Determine space requirements

We can provide mandated agencies with a space budget tool to assist with estimating your space requirements.

The tool uses simple inputs like headcount to generate a high-level report on the space required and the quantities of facilities and amenities.

Use the tool early in project planning as part of the briefing material to architects or designers. They can then use it to form the basis of their own more detailed space budgeting.

Email the Government Property Group team to access this tool.

Secure leadership support

Governance and effective decision making is a key success factor for any project.

Securing support and ownership from senior leaders is critical. Senior leaders need to provide strategic direction throughout the life of the project.

People and change

Identify stakeholders

Before developing plans for engagement and communication, identify:

  • who will be directly impacted
  • who could directly impact the project
  • actual and potential conflicts of interest
  • relationships between different stakeholders.

Plan reporting and communications

Any change is challenging. If workplace changes are not managed and communicated effectively, it can lead to significant disruption and damage.

Projects should always include an appropriate change and communications plan that:

  • involves staff in the journey
  • promotes understanding, and
  • encourages a sense of ownership.

A representative or team from each area of the business can act as project champions and provide valuable input from their respective areas.
