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.
Theres no question about it - an attractive office space increases employee creativity productivity and overall morale. Designer offices tend to attract and keep their employees longer than more unattractive ones and good workplace design is one of the top key factors that affect job satisfaction. In fact it has been suggested that a well-designed office can increase productivity by about 20%. Although many companies do not see investing in good workplace design as a priority (almost half) almost 9 out of 10 employees claim that the quality of their work environment directly affects their attitude toward work. It seems then that it would be foolish for employers not to try and find good design solutions to boost productivity - in the end it will be a worthwhile and satisfactory investment for everyone.
Consider the needs of your employees as well when mulling over the best design for your office. Pick a design scheme that will really boost their creativity and provide inspiration for them. It should also be comfortable and practical for working in. Now that you are moving office and having the space redesigned and refurbished it is time to consider whether you are going to sell your old office equipment and buy new equipment. Some of your old office furniture and decoration may no longer work with your new space. They can actually be sold to small starting companies through second hand furniture shops.
