Space Planning

We offer a practical office MEASURING and SPACE PLANNING service using CAD (Computer Aided Design) to produce accurate scaled drawings showing you what you can fit into your offices and how it will look.

If you are considering moving into a new office you might want to know prior to signing the lease whether it is physically big enough to cater for all of your needs, given the considerations identified below.

As a guide, the offices of typical Sydney based businesses range from 80 sq feet or less per person (desk) to 140sq feet or more per person. Of course this will vary considerably dependent on the type of business you are, whether you have open plan or cellular offices, the extent of meeting and break-out areas, how much storage space you need and the type and shape of building you are occupying.

All of these factors and many others such as accessibility, work-group associations (who needs to sit near who) and appearance have to be taken into consideration when planning the amount, type and size of furniture you can fit into the allotted space.

Selecting Office Furniture

Getting the right office furniture is important because a person spends about eight hours in the office for five days each week. Thus, when shopping for fixtures, a person should ensure that the fittings selected fit the space allocated for it. When allocating space for fixtures, one should spare some space to enable other people access documents from the cabinets. There should be enough room for other employees to sit at their desks or move out of and into the office. Lack of enough room congests the office thus making it a less conducive place for people to work effectively. The fixtures should be suitable for the purposes intended. One should also consider the type of organization that they run before selecting furniture.

It is inappropriate to select café seats for a lawyer firm because it may affect the performance of the company. Office furniture should be functional in that it serves its purpose effectively. When buying office equipment, one should include extra items such as filing cabinets, computer stands, and book cases because they provide supplementary functionality. They also create enough storage space for other items thus making the room more spacious and aerated. When selecting fixtures, a person should consider factors such as safety and health. As much as the furnishings should be practical and stylish, they should also accommodate the employee's safety and health requirements. To avoid backaches and strains, one should select furniture that is comfortable and appropriate.

Inappropriate furnishings may cause the employees to acquire ailments thus forcing them to use company time to seek medical treatment. When selecting office furniture, a person should consider the employee's needs. People in the finance department may be in need of fittings different from that of the Human Resource department. In order to create different moods, one should purchase fixtures of different but matching colours. This is appropriate for fashion houses, art galleries or modelling agencies because they fall in the category of arts. Corporate offices should have boldly coloured and rich furnishings to exhibit their earnestness in the services they offer. Fashion is another aspect that a person should take note of when shopping for office furniture. Clients love to visit offices that have a professional mood with tasteful furnishings.

The impression that a person's office gives to the clients is what determines their response to their services. A company's exhibits its ethos from the arrangement and type of fittings in it and this is what attracts the company to visiting clients. When choosing furnishings, one should have its future in mind. One should assess how easy it would be to develop the layout of the workplace using the fittings. When the employees are comfortable when working, it means that their level of productivity will increase considerably. Prior to purchasing furniture, it would be prudent to classify the fittings in terms of urgency to avoid buying unsuitable fixtures. Office furniture should be easy to clean and move about the office. One should avoid purchasing furniture that is hard to clean because it may be costly to maintain it.
