Planning a new Office Design

Office Design & Space Planning Considerations

OK, so you've fallen in love with your new office. The location is fantastic, the price is just right and the office is exactly the right size - but there's something missing. The office decor isn't up to scratch, the color scheme doesn't match or showcase your brand and the layout leaves a lot to be desired. This is where an expert Office Design Team come in.

An Office Design Team, consisting of Architects, Office Designers & General Contractors are central to transforming your office space into a well planned, flexible, inspirational and practical workplace. An initial tour around your future office space will bring some great ideas about your new office design and it's always a good idea to have some thoughts and ideas of your own.

To get the ball rolling, here's 5 things you need to consider about your office design:

      1. What kind of feel do you want the office to have?
If you're constantly entertaining clients then it's a good idea to try and create a professional yet welcoming environment. This can be done by creating an open plan workplace and investing in quality office furniture. If you're not going to be entertaining clients at all then why not create a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere for your staff? It could help to boost productivity and could motivate your work force.

      2. How much do you want to spend?
Having a realisitic office move budget and sticking to it is the key to any office move. Work hard to come up with a workable budget and your Office Design Team will work with you to make sure you get the most from office design and make your budget go that little bit further.

      3. How can you promote your brand through your office design?
Some of the best office designs we've seen have incorporated their company brand and colour scheme into the office design. Color is a great cost-effective way to bring a desired ambience into your workplace that reflects your company's image or branding.

      4. What layout do you want?
Funky, obscure layouts can look great in an office but if they're not practical then you're probably just going to end up wasting valuable office space. Your office space plan needs to be functional but should also have a clear sense of direction and order. Creating different configurations of workstations is a great way to encourage team collaboration and can also help to boost team morale.

      5. Think flexibility?
Over the course of your tenancy, your office layout will be constantly changing as your business adapts to new demands. Make sure you incorporate plenty of flexibility in your office space plans, and use office furniture, storage solutions and flexible partitioning that can stand the test of time.

You should be prepared to work closely with your Office Design Team to make sure you're 100% happy with the overall office design and space plan; after all it's going to be your new business home!
