Office Furniture Space Planning & Design

A well-designed workplace is a happy workplace.

A good office furniture space plan, fully utilizing the available space and creating work zones where staff can be productive and comfortable, is critical to a successful move, renovation, new build or office furniture update.

Space Planning & Services For Every Workplace Stage

  • Test fit a space before you decide on a lease, will all the staff fit?
  • Plan for growth, how many more staff can we accommodate?
  • Add spots for new hires.
  • Rearrange existing cubicles for better collaboration, privacy or a combination.
  • Plan and visualize a variety of cubicle layout options for a move to a new space.
  • Select desks that are certain to fit private offices.
  • Explore alternative layouts, traffic paths, and other concepts with multiple layout versions.
  • Plan and visualize office furniture layouts and new ideas for a renovation or refresh.
  • Analyze if a space could be reconfigured to work better vs moving.
