Believe it or not, office design is more and more visible as a critical element to business success today. And business technologies are not limited to the cloud and mobile devices; they drive the work space and work approaches as well. Building design trends of course also effect office design. Innovation in general is an important element in business today – and it extends to the office space as well. All of these create a consistently changing atmosphere for office interior construction – enabling new space experimentation and opportunities.
Businesses are finding more and more ways to achieve efficiencies – whether they be spacial, cost-savings, or even time- and staff-based efficiencies. The companies that succeed and grow take all of these into account. And it’s about more than saving employee time – it’s about employee wellness and morale as well – since a grateful, healthy staff can be happily productive. Not only is it about attracting top talent – it’s also about retaining them. The right work space design can contribute to all of this. The right approach is correlating work space design to a working environmental experience.
It is perhaps more obvious in retail store brand design to create a spacial experience to attract and retain customers. But these attitudes shouldn’t be limited to retail customers. After all don’t employees stay within your business environment much longer than customers? Don’t business guest meetings last longer than a typical retail shopping excursion? All this to say there is definite merit to office interior construction services having strong design build qualities. Quality interior design build isn’t just for hospitality or retail stores anymore. In fact there is a whole movement today called Experience-Driven Spaces encompassing all of this thinking. Experience-Driven Spaces are focused on goals of employee health, happiness, community-building and morale for all levels of staff within a company.
An obvious popular option in recent years to office space is the co-working or cohabitation space. The reasons these are popular, and continue to grow in popularity, comprise perceived benefits such as employee:
• resource efficiency
The common elements of co-working space design include: optional seating/working arrangements, open concept work spaces, technology resource spaces, unique creative planning areas, well-lit areas and a lot of glass, movable wall dividers, multi-use meeting spaces, plants and greenery, no cubicles, mobile furniture, comfortable seating and couches, and even coffee and espresso bars.
Along with all of these characteristics and benefits for office interior construction is the emphasis on work place individuality, personality and branding. A business today makes a statement within its office environment. And this personality is reflected upon its brand by both the employees and guests. So office interior design trends, such as old-meets-new industrial and modern blended spaces, become popular, as well as a lot of glass and patterned walls and floors, and greenery or environmentally positive elements.
Trends today definitely emphasize the value of modern work space planning and office interior construction services. These trends not only signify a comfortable, up-to-date design, but an emphasis on employee attraction, wellness and retention as well. The results can be growth in business productivity and success.
