The open plan office space has long been popular, and while it may have a sense of community and togetherness, it also has its drawbacks.
Let's look at some of the distractions of the current open plan office and then consider the benefits of appointing a professional window and door installation company to create a 'partitioned' office that will benefit everyone.
Specialising in new office buildings, refurbishment and relocation of existing office space, Window and Door Installers are ideally placed to install office pods in any open plan office space.
They can provide expert advice on pod placement, explaining the benefits of acoustic wall art panels and whether work needs to be carried out to isolate certain parts of the ceiling. The choice of partition is up to you, for example, smooth glass partitions can be installed in areas where sound reflection will not be a problem.
Introducing an isolation barrier in any void areas will also help to reduce sound transmission. This means that most of the sound that would normally travel from one office area to another will be blocked.
Meeting Pods are becoming increasingly popular, and it's easy to see why. Their quick and easy construction and installation minimises disruption to office processes.
When used, they allow colleagues to hold formal and informal meetings to discuss internal strategies and company business issues and are ideal for hosting service providers, clients and potential customers.
With the right office furniture, they will become stylish spaces in keeping with your company's ethos and objectives, while providing quiet spaces that can be used by employees as much as possible.
Office pods are installed in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. This means they can be adapted to meet your exact operational requirements. If doors are to be included, these are available in a wide range of options and the overall eye-catching design of these units really does add to the style of the open plan work area.
As we have already mentioned, it is very difficult to have private conversations in an open plan office environment. This makes the "pod" ideal for such conversations.
Many employees also find it beneficial to use these pods when they need peace and quiet to concentrate and work more efficiently.
Another benefit is that, due to their versatility, these pods are an excellent solution when carrying out office reorganisations or relocations.
Those looking to improve and enhance their open plan office environment would be wise to discuss the benefits and ease of installation and separation of office pods with a respected window and door installation company.
