With all of the delays I've had a lot of time to do the planning...! 

It's mainly due to the timescales involved, we've got a very real deadline on April 30th where we have to be out of the current unit, with no wriggle room at all.  There's so much to be done in the new place before we can start bringing our stuff in that we need to make sure we've got everything laid out clearly.  The theory being that anyone who's in each day can walk into a room, glance at the worksheet, and immediately know what needs doing.  It saves me having to spend my time checking on each room constantly during the day and I can focus on getting the big jobs done.

On a more serious note... hope your flooring is up to movement of 'Heavy Stuff'. Don't know about your flooring, or what sort of 'Loads' you will be moving around, or 'how'. Previous workplace... 'Heavy Duty' lino tiles couldn't cope with VERY heavy stuff (2-3+K Kg)...esp. when shifted with electric 'stackers', etc. Got chewed up in a couple of years.  I got a week of 'night shift' while some firm 'regraded' heavy use floor areas with 'Diamond?' flooring.. and still  small hole fixes needed where 'expansion joints'... ever after. Normal concrete, Ok... but DUST! Wish Well!  :)

And... dunno what design new 'Shed' has... but watch roof guttering!  VERY VERY heavy storm water, while back... flooded roads, etc, Gutters couldn't cope/ blocked.. and some 'plank' had designed that 'overflow' went 'INSIDE' instead of outwards! Cheers! lol! :)  ;)

Most of the floors are concrete so we're all fine there.  The new room upstairs is only desks and computers, so nothing majorly heavy.

My shed will have full gutters around it as we've had a lot of trouble with the groundwater here.  I've actually had a 'man with digger' out today to completely skim the top off the whole lawn as the water wasn't going anywhere.  We've dug some drainage channels now to fix it in the longer term.

Glad to hear, and congrats on the move!   :)
Do check out Roof guttering though. On a 90s 'unit' with roof gutters integral to  the structure, somebody had made the outside 'facade' higher than the inner 'wall' under the eaves. So, when EXTREME rainfall happened, (And gutters may not have been cleaned for a while!), the overflow went inside instead of down the outside wall !  :o
Stock/packaging shelving and Managers Office got VERY wet! No 'real' harm done, though! LOL!  ;)
Only happened once in 20 years. But... although 'peanuts' to a National organisation, a small business could have been hit hard. Worth a look into...weather getting more extreme, so they say! Another, very similar, 'unit' in another part of the country, lost most of its roof in a gale!
Still. not to worry... 'worse things happen at sea!'.  ;)

We had that at the old place, it's usually a build-up of tree/leaf debris that causes them to block up.  It took about 18 months to get the landlords to clean them out last time.

With the new place there's no trees in the close vicinity, just one to the side which doesn't seem to be causing any problems at the moment.
