Office relocation services
While a myriad of reasons, like growth, a move closer to a target audience or a lease expiry, can lead a company to relocate its offices, the political climate in the UK and EU has come to be a deciding factor in determining the future success of many a business.
With the full extent of Brexit and its impact on legislation becoming clearer, companies now need to think of ways to best protect their assets and business operations.
In many instances, the best way in which to do this is a company relocation to Europe. Large corporations are leading the way into Europe and setting up store in Amsterdam, Brussels, and Frankfurt.
Why are acoustics important? Every day we are surrounded by sound, in offices, meeting rooms reception areas, schools, or universities. Talking, ringtones, general scraping noises, background music, and even the echoes of foot-steps, all of this can cause a poor acoustic environment.
Within the office environment, the acoustic design of the room can affect the staff health and productivity, causing stress, fatigue and low productivity. Today, as more flexible working practices have emerged, the modern workplace is commonly an open plan area. Yet despite all of their advantages these spaces can suffer greatly from the distraction of noise.
Solving the problem of noise
The two most common solutions to provide the very best acoustic environment are either by absorbing sound or blocking it.
Acoustic absorption is provided by a wide range of different products, including acoustic ceilings, wall absorbers, absorbing acoustic screens, floor coverings and by seating products, booths, panels and even modular office pods. All these items absorb much of the sound that hits them, reducing reverberation and ambient noise and improving speech intelligibility – making for a better and more productive office environment.
Blocking can be achieved through the installation of acoustic screens between workstations, which can also absorb sound at the same time.
Installation and removals
We believe the office environment is very important as we spend as much time there as at home. We take into consideration comfort, efficiency, communication within each department and between each department, productivity and effectiveness of the layout:
1. Comfort – We can ensure that desks are adjustable or suited to the department and tasks that will take place, whether it will be sitting, standing, spending long periods of time in front of the computer or on the phone. We can also recommend the right ergonomic solutions to the tasks
2. Efficiency – Through the planning of the office layout we can help place work teams in close proximity of other teams they need to interact with frequently and office equipment they use often, therefore optimising the use of your space.
3. Communication – Positioning each department strategically for optimum effectiveness in communicating internally with colleagues or customers.
4. Productivity – Designing the office layout to suit the process, tasks and requirements of the environment.
