2. Collaboration Spaces Say goodbye to your private office (unless youre the boss, of course) because open plan offices are becoming increasingly popular. Companies are trying to make the best use of space possible, and office designers have found that giving everyone their own private area is just not the way to do this. An open plan office design also makes it possible for more employees to fit into the space, allowing for expansion. Partitions are also getting lower, as office designers have found that a space will look much bigger if people have a panoramic view. Some designers advise that a panoramic view whilst seated is preferable, whilst others maintain that if the office can be viewed panoramic whilst standing that this is fine.
As businesses everywhere are tightening their belts, optimizing productivity among employees is becoming increasingly important. In addition to obvious factors like efficient management and employee incentives, the design of office space is a significant factor in increasing workplace productivity. Architects and interior designers take many factors into consideration when designing interior spaces. They are well aware that the physical work environment has a direct psychological impact on people, affecting their behavior, emotions and thoughts. Creating a well-designed environment is just as important as building a functional one, since good design boosts creativity and productivity.
Depending on an individuals tasks, some employees will need a higher level of privacy to allow for deeper concentration while others will need to be in communication at all times. For example, a tight corner cubicle with high panels would not be suitable for people in a creative role who need to be in constant communication with their team. Sales people, on the other hand, may need to be in quieter, enclosed spaces so that they can carry on confidential phone conversations or conduct meetings in private. Either way, whether the office space is more open-concept or has more private offices, it is always a good idea to designate rooms for coffee breaks and office equipment to an area away from the main workstations. In this way the noise level will not bother other staff members.
While you can replace all of the office furniture for a very fast remodel, it can also be the most expensive option. Buying new office furniture may not even be required to create the illusion of new office design plans, either. Unless your furniture is in such disrepair that it needs to be trashed, you can opt to recondition it. If you dont just want the same old furniture back, opt to refurbish it. Office furniture refurbishing is one technique that not only brings in a new look, but also conserves precious planet resources. If youre looking to keep some of the structure of the office furniture while getting a whole new look or a workspace that serves more than one function, consider remanufacturing it.
