Whether you are just starting a new business endeavor or are looking to refresh an existing space, designing a workplace can be a daunting task.
There are many things to factor into the equation, and while it’s the work being done in your space that matters most, studies show that an aesthetically pleasing environment directly affects employee satisfaction and motivation. At OIG we have years of extensive experience designing offices across Dallas Fort Worth. Whatever your business, we can help enhance your workspace.
Nailing The Aesthetic
A vision exists for your company. Whether that was born in the early stages of developing your ideas or later as things got established, keeping that vision in mind throughout the process is essential.
What is it that you’re trying to show or communicate to the world? What is the mission statement? Why are we all here? These questions can help us refine the image you need to portray through your office’s design.
The design of your workspace says a lot about your culture. If you don’t align your aesthetic, your image, to your culture, you’ll have a lot of confusion and a lack of initial connection. If the goal of your design or redesign is to inspire your employees and your clients, nailing the spirit of the workplace is imperative.
There are a few practical ways we do this when designing offices. For one, having your company’s mission and values prominently displayed throughout the office. Obtaining furniture that not only matches your image but also is ergonomically considerate to your employees. Overall, you’re trying to ensure that your design represents you as a company, through and through.
Optimizing The Layout
The consideration for the functionality of the design comes largely in the layout.
Most offices organize their layout based on departments and teams. They group their employees based on their job function, but studies show that employees are more creative and engaged if they’re next to people with the same clients or goals.
We also want to keep your culture in mind while organizing your layout is extremely important. This includes both your company’s culture as a whole, but also the individual cultures of your teams. Considering how you can maximize that placement will go a long way to improve functionality.
It’s also important that we think about what needs to be accessible to your employees throughout the day. Is it certain equipment? A manager’s office? Things of that nature are also valuable to factor in when designing the layout.
Defining The Budget
When working with OIG, designing your office is an investment and it’s’ important for us to know your budget before diving into the project.
