The importance of effective office space planning

Published on 01/11/2016

Organising your office space can be a difficult task as there is so much more to consider than simply working out where your office furniture will go. Indeed, integral factors such as the arrangement of networking cables, electricity power outlets and cables as well as services like printers, telephone, fax and photocopier all need to be carefully considered. In addition to these concerns, there are also legal standards to adhere to and possible future expansions to bear in mind too.

Fortunately, we here at Calibre can be of great assistance in this respect as we are able to provide space planning services that are every bit as impressive as our contemporary office furniture offerings. To be sure, we have the necessary expertise and experience to make this seemingly convoluted task far les daunting so you can be sure that stress and upheaval won’t be factors that you have to deal with when you come to us.

So what exactly is it that we can do for you?

Well, there are a great many aspects which we could list as examples. However, the following three factors are perhaps the most important, certainly in terms of immediacy and compliance anyway.

Legal Requirements

As you might expect in 21st century Britain, there are quite a few legal requirements to consider. For example, there is the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) – now replaced by the Equality Act of 2010); the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations; the Building Regulations – Part B Fire Safety Volume 2; Part M Access to and use of Buildings; Part E (Resistance to sound), the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order. And these aren’t the only ones – there are also plenty of government guidelines that are not set in legal stone too. Naturally, all of these requirements would give you plenty to think about if you were trying to create a new office space by yourself. Our design experts know all about them though so you can be sure you'll not have to lose any sleep when you take advantage of our services.

Flexibility and Growth

A well designed space with suitably modern office furniture will be able to react to your changing business needs, quickly, effectively and affordably. As well as knowing what works in space planning, we here at Calibre also know all about the so-called’ good ideas’ which don’t work in practice; so you can rest assured the solutions we deliver are designed with flexibility and growth very much in mind.

Standards and Industry Norms

You may like to know that we’ve worked with other companies in your industry; we’ve implemented new ways of working and know the best ways to meet workspace needs. We know that the standards and norms for a creative agency for example, are very different to those required by a firm of solicitors. Quite simply, we know what it takes to make the most of any type of office workspace and we’d love to share our knowledge with you.
