Putting Together an Office Plan
Growing companies in Orange County should consider how the layout of an office reflects on the company’s brand. A sleek layout that’s efficient and clean can boost morale and productivity. Tech firms gaming start-ups in Irvine and real estate brands headquartered in the OC can budget wisely and create an office plan and space design that brings decision-makers and talent together.
The Executive Area
Collaboration is a key to an office functioning effectively and a good flow of communication starts with the executive team. High level strategy includes analyzing financial data, knowing changes in the marketplace and the talent needed to round out the existing team. Having a place to discuss is critical. Executive office desks can lend themselves to an atmosphere where it’s easy to access the CEO. No one has to hide behind walls. Consider the Verde Collection of desks by Cherryman. It can have a minimalist appeal while Cherryman’s Amber Desk design fits well for open offices, providing plenty of room for sharing ideas while keeping personal space defined. An executive space doesn’t need layers of drywall to stand apart from everyone else. Style and use of space set the boundaries while inviting communication.
The Office Floor
Open plan cubicles are a good way to create boundaries while allowing a flow of information. A solution like the Accelerate Workstation by Hon provides flexibility, a place to focus and the openness to share. The Crossroads Workstation by ODS combines a classic cubicle with today’s technology and includes room for personal and work filing and storage. Cubicles are flexible to accommodate growth and change so companies aren’t locked in to physical walls or bulky desks and furniture. Clean lines create order and give a look of stability. In a corporation with larger floor space, departments can have their own set and style of cubicles. In a smaller firm like a small business or a start-up, cubicles can function for a work area and modular furniture can allow for a specified meeting place.
