LAIKA is very proud of the unique designs we create.

Needs assessment & analysis

We are often right next to the client when they are in the middle of a transition phase that demands a fresh set of eyes to assess the use of workspace: Has the company grown or will departments with different cultures be merged? And are the concrete future needs even known precisely enough? LAIKA works with a wide range of methods such as observations and registrations, workshops and targeted involvement in order to understand the organization and its employees, ambitions, and future forecast.
And then we design the framework. That way, a lasting foundation for construction and workplace design is created, developed for the particular company and the people working there. “The difference between getting a house or a home”, a client of ours once called it…
And furthermore a set of frames capable of containing and adapting to the future progression, often with a sustainable optimization of the use of square meters as an added bonus.
Implementation & evaluation
Furniture lists and equipment offers, implementation management, consultancy, and evaluation.
When a company relocates or makes changes in their existing physical surroundings, there are a number of things to sort out. LAIKA has helped many companies to settle down in their new settings and can be helpful with for instance ordering new furniture, moving processes, implementing and using the new facilities, and following up on the design. LAIKA ensures a successful implementation of the new workplace design from day one!
Company & lease consultancy
Consultancy regarding space requirements and tenancy, test-fits, and construction analyses.
LAIKA offers lease consultancy for companies that are in the process of making decisions regarding new or existing tenancies.
Have you outgrown your existing premises or are there too many unoccupied square meters in your workspace? Can the use of square meters be efficiency-optimized and accommodate new facilities and work methods?
LAIKA helps companies map out the different potential and challenges on one or several tenancies. We perform test-fits to examine the space potentials of the tenancies, we benchmark on facts, quality, potential, and key numbers to make it easy to understand and base a decision upon. We adjust the consultancy to match the needs of the company, and we happily participate in meetings with realtors, entrepreneurs, and internal meetings in your company.

A typical LAIKA process
LAIKA’s visual process plan is a tool for understanding and communication of the agreed upon process. The structure of the overall phases is similar in most projects, regardless of size. In collaboration with the client, we define the scope and extent of the project, which results in the design of a process that completely matches the uncovered needs.
