One thing you can consider doing instead is finding an office building that has its own on site parking whether it be exterior using K&E Flatwork paving services or a multi storey car park complex. Parking is a huge decision making factor for many people, and you need to try and accommodate this for yourself and your employees if you can.
As the pandemic is coming to an end and we look to get back to our lives – one thing to consider is the space we have for working in the office.

Bear this in mind during the search and consider discussing a few options with your staff to see what they think.
