Put an emphasis on flexible workstations
Nowadays, many organisations are giving priority to agile workstations, including height adjusting desks, sit-to-stand desks, static workstations and so on. It is important to remember that the relevance of an agile workstation depends on a number of factors like the number of full-time, part-time, sit-in and mobile employees.
Don’t Ignore Safety Standards
While you are planning for new fit out for your workplace, ensure that your new office adheres to the safety standard set by the regulating authorities. Make sure factors like fire hydrants, first aid, emergency exits, overcautious plans and easy mobility within the spaces between desks and location of amenities are thoroughly considered.
Leave enough space for a break room
Having enough creative space for a break room is important for the productivity of your employees. While planning your office fitouts, make sure you have left adequate space where employees can be creative, relax, socialise away from their desks and recharge during the work days.
Use available space smartly
It is important to consider available space to ensure that your office remains clutter-free. Plan the fit out after taking into account the opportunities and limitations of your work space. This includes storage areas, workstations and peripheral resources like the printers or photocopy machine.
Last but certainly not the least, it is important to determine the available budget before planning a fit out. You also need to take into account your status as the occupant of the space. For example, if you are a temporary occupant, the design and structural scope will be different compared to a permanent occupant. Therefore, your fit out costing will be significantly less than a permanent occupant.
