For Federal Agencies: Getting the Most Out of Your Office Space

Early Planning

For optimal rental rates and the best possible workspace, planning for real estate transactions begins 25 months before your occupancy agreement is scheduled to expire. Early planning is key to receiving better rates, better finishes and better space alterations. It is also important for budgeting purposes as it allows more flexibility in exploring space options.

Solutions Through Space Innovation

Budget constraints, space reduction regulations and today’s cost-saving climate can pose significant challenges for federal agencies. Sometimes it comes down to this: cut space or cut employees.

What if you could reduce square footage, improve space efficiency and retain more employees?

GSA can help. By rethinking your physical spaces and workplace strategies you can reduce costs, increase efficiency and improve employee engagement while also reducing your footprint.

Go Green

GSA's environmental goal is to eliminate all damage to the environment resulting from its operations. The challenge is to achieve this while continuing to provide superior workplaces for federal workers. Heartland realty specialists will work with you throughout the real estate transaction process to coordinate sustainable design and energy programs. Through collaboration with other governmental and non-governmental organizations worldwide, the GSA environmental program serves as a resource and center of expertise for all GSA organizations.
