Office Space Planning

  • Introduction

    The Importance of Office Space Planning

    It may not seem like much of a job to plan an office however one thing that is often overlooked is how well the technology will work in the office space. This can be things like what are the acoustics and lighting like in the conference room, or is there enough network coverage, both wired and wireless?

    It is far easier to invest a little time at the start of an office refit to allow flexible working rather than having to retrospectively adjust things once all the partitions are up, desks are already laid out and people are using the spaces.

    We can also help with designing your audio-visual requirements for meeting and conference rooms:

    • Ensuring that the correct lighting and acoustics are in place to get the maximum benefit from the AV equipment.
