Space Planning for Your Office: Designing for Optimum Workflow.

Posted by: Mitchell H. Kirsch 1 comments

Office furniture is designed to solve problems, not create them. But haphazard planning and execution can make the office space planning process unnecessarily grueling and expensive. The problems that crop up when office layouts interfere with worker efficiency show that there are many more ways to get it wrong than right.

Facility managers need to recognize that there is no such thing as a generic, one-size-fits-all office. What’s right for an accounting firm might not be right for an advertising firm. Even different departments in the same company may have diametrically different requirements – just try moving an advertising art director down the hall to an account executive’s cubicle, and you’ll see what we mean.

In this white paper, we will describe design issues that may crop up when another variable is introduced into the mix, one that varies from office to office – that of workflow.

Wow, I thought it was bad at my last office job when they couldn’t be bothered to update the seating chart more than twice a year. I can’t imagine not even having assigned desks at all. The “floating” workspace setup might be feasible in a department where everyone does basically the same job, but you still have to equip everyone adequately.
