Carefully considered space planning is the key to good interior design, if done well it can ensure the success of your office environment.
The most insightful space plan is achieved when informed by a well-researched brief coupled with a good understanding of the architectural and technical restrictions of the building.
Once we understand the way you work, we may provide you with a variety of planning models in order to best illustrate innovation, these options often highlight resolutions for issues you may not yet have articulated.
Block planning of your building(s) may be the first stage of the space planning process. It will provide an overview, with broad brush suggestions, for departmental adjacencies, meet and greet spaces, and secondary requirements. You are more likely to benefit from block planning if you occupy space over more than one floor, or if you have a very large floorplate with several entrances.
Space Planning options are usually created to illustrate various ideas for consideration. They may include agile and traditional working models and the approved layout is likely to develop along with feedback from your stakeholder team.
General Arrangement Plans are the name we use for developed and generally signed off space plans, they can change to reflect the development of the 3D concept and illustrate the increased level of detail required. They are expected to include the following:
- Increased and fine-tuned architectural detail
- Accurate furniture specifications
- Increased notation relevant to the concept design
- Departmental information including neighbourhoods if required
- Storage allocation
- Room names/numbers for reference
- Area names/numbers for reference
