What is The Difference Between Space Planning And Design?

There are so many factors to consider when thinking about doing an office overhaul. Everything from furniture and layouts to fabrics and finishes will be a part of the decision making process. The truth is, having professional office space planning AND office design help will make any makeover go much more smoothly. So, what is the difference between the two?

The first step in any office re-design is to assess the current space and client needs. We’ll send a ROSI Project Consultant to your office to take measurements and discuss your vision. This process is called space planning. Every detail is taken into consideration: how many employees you have in the square footage, as well as architectural features of your space like windows (natural light!) and existing private offices, break rooms, conference rooms. From there, we work and re-work until we find the most effective layout.  Within 24-48 hours, you will be provided with 2D and 3D renderings to review and make changes if necessary. Together, we will settle on a final plan that maximizes the employee experience, encourages productivity, and overall makes the best use of the office space. From this, we can generate a list of pieces you’ll need to complete your office makeover.

If an in-person meeting doesn’t work with your schedule, we also offer virtual consultations using our Designlive web tool. Chat on the phone with our Project Consultant and make changes together to the space plan via computer. You’ll see your space transform before your eyes, live!
