Office Space Planning Idea Starters
If you’ve been in your current office space for some time, you may see that what was once the ideal office space configuration is no longer working. Maybe your outside sales team no longer travels as much and spends more time in the office. Or, your office now has many empty cubicles because you’ve streamlined your processes.
If you’re reading this article, it’s likely because you have an office space planning problem in search of a solution. Here are a few space planning ideas to get you started.
Reclaim Valuable Office Space
Do you have a file room that’s no longer used? Perhaps your files are many years old and are rarely even accessed. As long as there is no legal reason you need to retain your files, recycle the paper and reclaim the space.
That old file room might serve nicely as a new conference room. If you’re not quite ready to totally destroy all your old files, consider scanning them and saving them electronically. Disk space is pretty inexpensive these days and there are several software options that will allow you to scan documents and make them searchable.
Repurpose Unused Offices
A large unused office can be reconfigured to comfortably house multiple employees. First remove existing office furnishings, cabinetry and even the door. Systems furniture such as bench desking can be ordered to fit the space.
If you have employees who used to occupy multiple cubicles, but now telecommute, consider repurposing that unused space as well. Cubicles can be reconfigured into new spaces for collaboration.
