Social Distancing for Office Fitouts in Melbourne

August 25, 2021 Blog

Social distancing is the new normal across all facets of our life, but how does it impact the planning processes of office fitouts in Melbourne?  

Here are some ways to effectively apply social distancing rules in your office so that employee safety is addressed. 

Maximise the available space

To minimise the risks of spreading the virus, it is recommended that we maintain at least 1.5 metres distance between people. While it might be trickier to do this in smaller offices, we guarantee that you can achieve it with careful planning. Reconfiguring the furniture arrangements is a solution that will allow you to maximise the overall floor space. 

Installing office partitions

Many offices are now installing office partitions in Melbourne as a response to social distancing rules. Office partitions help to not only increase privacy but to also add a physical barrier between employees. With lots of style choices available, office partitions can also make the workplace more attractive. 

Upgrading the tech features

Where possible, reduce the need for employees to touch lots of common touch points in the office, like door knobs and light switches. These touch points make it easy for the virus to spread. We suggest incorporating the use of technology that removes the necessity of these touch points, such as the installation of automatic doors and sensor lights that don’t rely on touch.
