There’s more to office space planning than ensuring that office furniture, equipment, resources, and most importantly, people, all physically fit into your workspace. It’s also about thinking creatively about how space is used, and how it can be adapted to create a productive, creative and comfortable space that adds value to your business.
Superficially looking at your office design and thinking about how it’s going to be laid out is unlikely to ensure the very best use of space. Instead, you need to think systematically, bearing in mind a range of different factors.
At Flow, we’re experts when it comes to office space planning. We use a combination of the smartest technology and our unrivalled depth of experience to deliver outstanding results for our clients.
How to Plan Office Space
Any office planning exercise needs to begin with how you use your current space. How does the space meet your expectations of what you need, or how do you think it should be used? For instance, how many meeting rooms do you really need compared to what you previously presumed you needed?
Then you need to define your needs in more detail by looking at how your business operates and what you require in order to function. What do you need to achieve with your space, how will people work together, how many people use the office, and what’s required in terms of social space?
Then think how much room is needed for you to fit in everything you require without creating clutter and a poor working environment? Your office space floor plan needs to take into account the wellbeing of everyone who works there. If you’re planning how best to layout a totally new office space then the considerations will be different, but the same degree of careful attention to detail needs to be taken.
Don’t Struggle With Office Design Alone
