Summers in NYC can get incredibly hot and humid. If you’re thinking of hiring a team of NYC movers to get your office move underway, it’s important that you first make sure you’re new location is ready to house your employees and equipment comfortably.
Moving in NYC means getting permits and inspections out of the way as soon as you can. This is true any time of the year. Making sure the new office is in perfect working order is vital to continue to conduct a productive work environment, without wasting any time.
Get Inspections Out of the Way
Your new office, no matter what borough it resides in, will have to go through at least one form of inspection. In the summer months, you’ll want to make electrical your top priority, right next to air purification tests.
It depends on how long the new location as been empty, but even it’s just recently vacated, it’s essential to make sure it’s up to code. Air conditioners need to be in working order, blowing clean air, giving employees freedom and relief from the heat outside.
We all know the struggle of office air conditioning. Either your workspace is a freezing tundra, or the air doesn’t work well enough and it’s just as sweltering inside as out. Avoid both of these problems by having a thermostat installed that YOU control, not the building owners.
Investigating the proper steps to have this completed is worth every second of time it takes, and your employees will appreciate it greatly.
Stock the Break Room
Few people want to venture out into the NYC heat to grab lunch. For a borough like Staten Island, where you’ll get a car heavy, suburban feel, things might be a bit different. Employees, if they live in Staten Island, can hop in their air conditioned car and head out for a certainly delicious meal.
However, taking into consideration that a few employees are probably taking the ferry over, you are going to want to stock your break room – that way, no one really has to head out into the heat. A water cool, vending machines, fresh sandwiches and fruit are easy to grab for an inexpensive price from a catering company, especially if you do it daily. Work ethic will explode.
