Office Interior Design

Transforming a blank canvas into something amazing

What is interior design?

 

In our eyes, it’s transforming a blank canvas into something amazing.

Creating a ground plan of your workspace can make a drastic difference.

It’s not just about putting a chair here and there, it’s about making a space which is unique in its own right. Just a few decisions can change the feel of a room. Staff are more likely to be more productive if they are working in a comfortable office than in a dark and dingy room. If a workplace is comfortable and stylish, it’s more likely that your staff will see the workplace as a place they enjoy being.

The Interior

There is a lot to consider when creating an office interior design. With the choice of meeting rooms, breakout areas, reception and storage areas, along with lighting, power, air conditioning and more, an interior design plan focuses on ensuring these items are incorporated into your space as hassle free as possible.

To make an interior design which is personal to you, we go into the precise details. Finishes, textures and colours can easily affect the ambience of a room. Depending on how you want your business to be perceived, a few minor choices can completely change the way your business is seen. Whether it be completely professional, or business casual, we will work to provide you with the appropriate design.

A lot of people presume that interior design is only to do with the aesthetic of a room. That couldn’t be further from the truth. We provide designs that include the lighting, power and air conditioning. This requires assessing electrical wiring. This is no problem, as our team of experts are trained to deal with situations like that.

Another service we provide is the installation of washrooms and toilets. We make sure that all the plumbing work is done to the proper standards. The choice of relevant sanitary-ware is an important part of any building. We will also work on the proper choice of suitable flooring. All these decisions and more and are not only fully designed by us, but we also install them.

An important part of any business that gets ignored a lot of the time is acoustic solutions. In recent surveys, it was discovered that in an open plan office space, employees are interrupted every three minutes. It can then take up to 23 minutes for a worker to get back to the original task at hand. Just by using sound absorbing materials, office distractions may be significantly reduced.

Sometimes, as a business, you may want to expand out of your current office and into a new building. We will carry out full site surveys on any building you are considering relocating to. The information we give you will help you to make an informed decision on whether or not to move to a premise that not only suits your requirements, but is also as cost effective as possible.

We pride ourselves on our monitoring and evaluation skills.

Monitoring is the routine and systematic collection of data from projects and design programmes for four main purposes:

It’s important to learn from past experiences. To make sure all projects run smoothly we monitor and log everything we do. This helps us to work well with practices we have already done. To have external and internal understanding of all resources used and any results obtained throughout a project. Making informed decisions on the future of the project. To promote the decisions beneficiaries make during the project. Monitoring occurs from the planning stage of a project through to the end. It allows all experiences, results and processes of a project to be documented, allowing learning processes and decision-making to be steered in the right direction. The more important feature of monitoring is the ability to check progress. All the data collected during the monitoring stage is used as the evaluation at the end of a project.

Evaluation is the assessment stage. This is done as systematically as possible. There are five main aspects:

Sustainability Efficiency Effectiveness Impact Relevance Evaluation collects all the data and information of the project so that it can help to make strategic decisions. This helps to improve the project and any other programme that may be taken on in the future. All this information is put together and is used in the evaluative analysis.

Monitoring and evaluation is a major part of any project. Other companies seem to believe that it is simply an optional part of a project, and that it’s something that is nice to offer. We firmly believe it is an essential part of a project and should never be ignored. Monitoring and evaluating work side by side to provide a detailed evaluation is one of the most useful processes a project can have.

They work side by side in three distinct areas:

How do we manage time around our activities? What are we actually supposed to be doing? If something is changed, why are they being changed and how will they be changed? When an activity is finished, what long term effects does it have on the rest of the project? The evaluation side of this analyses and interprets all this data. The effects and the overall impact of the project are analysed as deeply as possible, so that the client can receive a fully detailed overall analysis of the project and everything is informative and clear.

Our clients CRBE Investments manage, on behalf of an investor, an office building that had a tired 1970s common area and washroom. The building was in a city centre location, making them highly marketable. However, they desperately wanted to change the interior design so as to attract more tenants and support existing occupants.

Even though they had a strict budget, we managed to create a modern feel to the areas they highlighted. They felt it made that much of an impact that they had the design carried over to the remaining floors. Such was the improvement in fact, that Regus, the world’s largest serviced office provider, took up a whole wing on the 7th floor.
