ReSpace - Inspiring Commercial Space

Why Is Office Space Planning So Important?

With the UK having avoided a recession, things are looking much more positive for businesses in the year ahead.  Pushing ahead with a proposed office refurbishment might seem a more attractive idea. Whatever your goals, ReSpace Ltd can work closely with you to meet your objectives.

Although it sometimes might not seem like it, there’s never been a more exciting time to transform a commercial space in London. 

New technology has made offices more efficient, whilst it’s easier than ever to create a sustainable space using environmentally friendly materials.

There’s also a trend for creating a ‘home from home’ in an office, meaning you can get more creative with interior design. From improving your colour palette to introducing stylish materials, there’s more ways than ever to reinforce your branding. Our interior design experts are always happy to advise you on the latest trends and how they benefit your premises.

Space planning arguably should always be the first step in any office refurbishment. 

Otherwise, you can end up with a great looking space which doesn’t fully serve the individual needs of your staff, nor encourage their productivity. From improving your workflow and minimising distracts to encouraging collaboration, a well-designed layout can make all the difference.

This concept has been crucial since the introduction of the open plan office, which rose to popularity in the 1960s. At the time, such offices often caused a lot of noise pollution and stress, but they were also recognised for their advantages. Space planning reduces problems like distractions and stress, ensuring that the wellbeing of your staff is as high as possible.

Make the best use of the space you have available. 

In London, space is often at a premium. Unsurprisingly, it’s one of the most expensive places in the UK to lease an office. According to research, the priciest area is Mayfair, with the West End generally being the most costly.

London is also one of the most expensive cities in the world for office space, along with New York, Tokyo and Beijing. However, it offers many big benefits, including being at the centre of the commercial world.

With our experts in office refurbishments, you can reduce any wasted room and introduce clever storage solutions to maximise your space. You can also reduce the cost of your bills by making your premises more energy efficient.

An important aspect of office space planning is meeting compliance and safety requirements. 

This includes ensuring there is the right amount of spacing, that fire exits are easily accessible, and that you reduce the risk of any accidents or injuries occurring.
