Effective Planning of Office Space
Office Space Planning
When it comes to the effective planning of your new office space, there are many things to consider to help you get the most value from your new workplace. You'll want your new office to be comfortable, functional, inspiring and be able to enhance productivity within the workplace.
An efficient office begins with proper planning, so you'll need to consider what is important to you as a business, and discuss your business priorities with your Office Design Team.
They will help to design an effective office space plan that incorporates all the things that are important to you as a business and carry out a utilization study on how you currently use your existing workplace and suggest ways to improve your office space layout.
Here are some points to consider whilst planning an effective office space:
- Perform a Storage Audit
Find out how much storage space you really need; not enough storage space will cause a messy office, but too many storage units may take up too much valuable office space that could be put to better use.
- Add small Finishing Touches
It's often the smaller things that make a big difference. Small finishing touches such as blinds and glass partitioning with your company logo on will give the right first-impression to visitors and promote brand awareness.
- IT Equipment
Think about the location for communal IT equipment that makes it easy and accessible for staff. Consider placing nosier and more obtrusive IT equipment such as copiers, scanners and faxes in a designated IT comms room.
- Office Furniture
Choose office furniture that is both comfortable and robust. Think about flexibility when it comes to the layout of workstations so that desks can be easily reconfigured as your business grows and evolves.
Make best use of the office's natural light by positioning workstations close to windows. This is not only energy and cost saving, but it's also been proven to increase the feelgood factor and boost productivity.
Have your Office Design Company create animated 3D walk-throughs of your new office space. These are perfect for giving you a true impression of how your new office will look like before you sign off your office design and space plan so that build-out can begin, and you'll start to see your new office finally come to life!
