Are you based in the south-west and planning a move to new premises or maybe you’re thinking about refitting your existing workspace? To re-energise your employees and maximise your business’s potential, then a new office fit-out is just what you need? Areas that you can look to improve the office environment include –
- Layout / Partitions
- Flooring / Ceilings
Looking At the Options
To find the best solutions to your specific requirements, an essential factor is to acquire the most suitable supplier to install your project. One of the easiest ways to do this is to use a search engine and search in your locality; for example, type office fit out in Swindon and take a good look at the available businesses. Having noted several you like the look of, it is then possible to cross-check how highly each supplier is rated using websites such as Feefo or Trustpilot; take a look at either of them to get a good idea of what information is available.
What To Consider Next
Having found a well-established, highly rated Installation specialist, the next step might be to consider what is available to you when planning your new office fit-out or refurbishment. Improving each of the following areas in your workspace can lead to numerous advantages to all the different areas of your business.
Lighting Your Way
An essential factor in any working environment is a good standard of lighting, where possible maximisation of any natural light can lead to improved levels of staff output and well-being, but this may not always be possible. If your building is not blessed with a generous number of windows, then artificial lighting is the only option open to you. A popular choice now widely used is LED lighting; this mode of light eliminates glare and gives the illusion of natural light.
Dividing Your Space
When you look at how you want to use your workspace, it is very likely that you’ll want to use some sort of partitioning system; options can include glass (both single and double-glazed), drywall and demountable (non-permanent) partitions. All have differing levels of acoustic, fire resistance, and aesthetic performance, investigate the specific properties of each and see which one is the best solution for you.
Above and Below
You may have a specific requirement for either the floors or the ceilings of your workspace; if that’s the case, then any good supplier will have several options available to you. Where flooring is concerned, popular choices are carpet tiles or vinyl flooring with numerous options of both; you may need safety flooring – that is also an option. If you need a specific type of ceiling, options can include various materials to give energy saving, acoustic and aesthetic benefits.
Furniture and Décor
Crucial factors in any good workspace are both what furniture your staff use and what their may surroundings look like. Continued improvements in ergonomic design give you a fantastic choice when it comes to furniture; whether it’s chairs or whole workstations, take some time to look at all the options to find what will suit you best. The same level of choice can also be said when you investigate how to change the décor in your office, from painting to vinyl finishes or planting; all can be used to create the perfect visual environment to wow your staff or impress visiting clients.
Having looked into all these different areas, all that is left is to contact the supplier you’ve chosen and get cracking – the benefits are endless!!
