Office Necessities - when youve agreed the positions and layouts of your offices and workstation desks, it is vital to establish the locations of your office necessities. Some examples include cabinetry, computer equipment, phone lines & outlets, power outlets, data outlets, shelving and storage. It is a good idea to ensure your planning is based on convenience, access and flexibility; Aesthetics - After youve finalized the planning for all office necessities, start thinking about occasional furniture or finishing that works well with the office design.
When its time to design your office fit out, most people want to know what everyone else is doing in their offices at the moment so that they can do something similar. After all, no one wants to be behind the times. So, here are three of the current office design trends in Australia and overseas: 1. Writing on Walls It is becoming increasingly popular for companies to want a large space on which to write and brainstorm ideas. This was traditionally done with the standard whiteboard, but these days, office designers are coming up with more creative ways to do this.
Next is to hire the best builders and office decorators. You will soon find out that there are a myriad of companies offering their office decorating and building services in the UK. The number alone will intimidate you. It might be more difficult to narrow down your options to the most reliable ones. But do not let this keep you from choosing the best design and building company. Look for a company that focuses on office redesign. Check their track record. Make sure they have been in the business for a long time and that they have already serviced a number of companies. Check their portfolio as well. Browse the photos of their previous projects so you can determine if they are really competent in redesigning your office.
Legal minimum office space per person. There is no prescribed minimum occupancy level for a modern office design. Within the UK Building Regulations the section dealing with Fire Hazards (Part B of the Building Regs.) advises a minimum area of 6 square metres (64 sq feet) for each person in an office premises. This figure can be achieved by equating the total headcount against the overall net internal area (NIA) and so doesnt necessarily limit the space for a single person with a desk. In practice, offices will have a number of factors - mostly relating to Fire Escape but also the provisions of WCs, amount of fresh air available through a ducted system, etc. - that have an impact on the legal maximum number of people accommodated within an office building. The Means of Escape is the key criteria for density of occupation. Once a workstation office design layout is defined the Building Control advisor can determine if there are sufficient escape routes for the staff numbers.
