What Is Space Planning?
Space planning for businesses refers to deciding on the layout of your office, whether it will be a closed- or open- space, how many private offices there will be, and how furniture will be arranged. You might think of it as part of the design process, but it really has more to do with how the office functions.
What Is an Open-Space Office?
An open space office is one where everyone sits in the same “room” with desks or cubicles rather than many private offices or conference rooms. This layout is touted for improving collaboration among team members, but it doesn’t work for every business.
PVI’s Office Space Planning Services
At PVI, we offer comprehensive office space design and planning services. Our professionals will provide scale drawings of potential setups for your office, suggest furnishings within your budget range, and help you execute your vision for your office. Our experts will also:
- Provide workflow patterns. We will detail the best office floor plan to improve the efficiency of your workers’ mobility around the office. With these work patterns, we can accurately assess the current patterns of your employees’ movements and suggest ways they can be improved for a happier, more productive office.
- Offer workspace suggestions. Just because you’ve had your office’s current setup for a while doesn’t mean it’s perfect. We can suggest the best furniture and office space arrangement for your particular budget and space constraints.
- Provide detailed scale drawings. We want you to be able to visualize your office space before we redesign it. We will provide detailed scale drawings of what your office will look like once we implement our design.
Space Planning in a Post-COVID World
Millions of people are being vaccinated daily in the U.S., so the goal of herd immunity could be mere months away. As brands move back to the office, they’ll need to evolve to socially distant, sterile conditions — a task that’s considerably easier with PVI Office Furniture by your side. The CDC has asked businesses to adapt their waiting and check-in areas as well as create new routes of entry. They also suggest six feet between employees, but physical barriers are a CDC-approved alternative.
Adjusting to Social Distancing
The more layout options your furniture can offer, the easier it will be to adjust once the pandemic has ended. We suggest an open-plan office that can buy you precious desk space. Casual additions from our transitional styling range will make your workspace more adaptable, while Epitome privacy panels will protect your staff.
It’s not easy to make room for social distancing if your office’s square footage is as scarce as its untouched doughnuts. Hutches, bookshelves, and reception tables can divide your workspace stylishly enough to preserve your brand identity. If you’re working with a large, complicated layout, the Candex Complete Office system is ideal for refined layout strategies. And if you’re not sure where to start, our experts can help redesign your workflow patterns for a post-COVID world.
Meeting areas require face-to-face communication. Wider conference tables are perhaps the most economical way to add distance to these rooms. Expandable table designs will add temporary width and adjust to tighter spacing after the vaccine rollout is complete. The CDC’s recommended decals and tapes can certainly add distance, but their aesthetic is far from sophisticated. Our Sienna modesty panels and credenzas can add a foot of distance more stylishly. Our OfficeSource products combine COVID safety with beauty. They’re adaptable to just about any desk configuration. If you need to divide a large reception area, Merge Works’ privacy wings and sneeze guard panels are up to the task. Where extra vertical space is needed, try Merge Works’ caster-driven system, which is easy to roll around the office in a jiff.
