Let me answer that question with another question – Is your current location convenient for staff, clients, or company growth? If the answer is no then relocation should be at the forefront of your thoughts.
Today, I want to take a look at the people that have answered “YES” to the (directly) above question.
Sometimes an office space can have a negative effect on staff morale - leading to reduced productivity levels. The most important feature of good office design is functionality but too often offices are jam-packed with poorly placed furniture, equipment and supplies that make small offices completely dysfunctional.
An office environment that has not been renovated in years can become the norm. "If it isn’t broke don’t fix it” some may say. OK… I can agree to a point, however, I have a ‘good’ car, but I’ll probably still buy a new one in the near future. Why? Because the technology and appearance will make me feel joyful, I don’t mind spending more hours of the day in it. The latter part of that sentence is what I want you to think about as you meander your way through today’s blog.
Office Design – But Where Do I Start?
Occasionally, all it takes is a new pair of eyes. Someone who has a FRESH perspective on the environment you see day in day out. Professional workspace designers enter an office with no preconceptions, just an open mind with a number of great ideas.
The unique processes we follow are very simple - we carry out a detailed analysis of your desired space, your requirements and your budget for the project. It’s imperative that we establish your requirements from design and planning, all the way down to future intentions of the company for example: if you have plans to expand the workforce, or, on the other hand to downsize. They also have to think about practical issues such as: IT infrastructure, power needs and furniture and how to achieve optimum effectiveness in the working environment.
Just a couple of questions you may face from our project managers - What kind of office design best suits the working processes and culture of the organisation? Would enclosed offices or a more open plan working environment be better? It’s imperative our team get it right first time round, hence why so many questions are asked. No stone should be left unturned.
Designing the perfect small office requires a combination of creativity and vision as well as a complete understanding of your business practice. Our experienced team has a wealth of knowledge in the design field. If you are unsure about how to put the wheels in motion for your NEW office space why not give them a call.
