    Maybe:

    "I'm getting ready to go to the office."

    You're welcome!

    Though most people would probably say simply: "I'm getting ready to go to work" in BrE, at least. Relatively seldom do you hear "to the office", these days.

    For instance, if someone were to call me at 6am, I might say: "You'll have to be quick I'm just getting ready to go to work". (Or "I'm just getting ready for work".)

    All the best,

    MrP
