Covers all aspects of planning, designing and leasing new or retrofitted office space. While the bulk of the material was written for this book, selected chapters have appeared before in other Wiley titles and are now updated to reflect specialized aspects of the subject. Topics include determining a client organization's space and cost requirements, deciding on a suitable building and space, the nitty-gritty of design, retrofitting for office automation, selecting a designer, and signing a contract. It makes generous use of tables, charts, spreadsheets, checklists, and design workgrids. Features a special lease negotiation list for tenants.
