Coming into 2021 after what was, arguably, the most turbulent year of our lives, there is no doubt that workplaces will be looking at ways to change and adapt. A subtle change in the physical look of the workplace will inevitably affect daily operations and the overall workflow.
For 2021, the ideal office fitout should be able to meet physical distancing protocols without compromising productivity. Here are some of the factors to consider when revamping your office in 2021.
Make your staff feel at home with a mix of residential and commercial features, designed for both comfort and safety. In line with the COVID-19 pandemic, workers are already beginning to favour this sort of design as they have been juggling the working from home lifestyle all year and are only recently starting to return to the office. For a resimercial space, consider including natural light and ambient lighting, comfortable seating options and breakout areas and classic house plants in your overall design.
Installing screens and office partitions helps in mitigating the spread of viruses and limiting physical contact. With the right design options, office partitions can be both functional and visually appealing. For instance, glass partitions provide a way to divide the office area without compromising the staff’s feelings of connectivity, as they can still see their surroundings.
Video conferencing provisions
Aside from making sure your office is safe, you should also include some remote working and virtual meeting provisions. Equipment for video conferencing will facilitate a smoother collaborative process amongst dispersed team members. It also helps to communicate with clients who’d rather meet virtually or are unable to physically meet. Smart interactive whiteboards, multiple screens and upgrades for better sound systems should therefore be taken into account when rethinking layouts and fitouts.
