Shared Space

From hot desking to presentation spaces, shared spaces are designed to avoid unnecessary uses of space

Dedicated Areas for Collaboration or Short Use

The concept of hot desking and shared workspaces in not new, but its the one area which can have a massive positive impact on the utilisation of space in an office.

If you look round your office and regularly see a proportion of empty desks for whatever reason, be it, flexible working hours, absenteeism, holidays, employees working offsite, on the road visiting customers or suppliers or simply no longer employed, the chances are you have allocated too many permanent desk spaces.

Shared spaces can take many forms including smaller desks, more relaxed areas or high level desks to suit shorter work times.

But most importantly, shared spaces allow you to dramatically reduce the fixed costs per employee ratio, whilst also creating a more productive environment – now isn’t that worth considering.
