Lately, there have been an increasing number of professionals in the built environment profession turning to the study of the relationship between buildings and organisations, especially the design of the office and the efficiency of the business performance.
Oseland, one of the leaders in this field of research have advised that office occupiers should actually measure their revenue per square foot to determine the effectiveness of their property on the performance of the staff, just in the way that retailers measure sales per square foot. He suggests that instead of the driving priority in finding office space to be to cut costs, it should instead be in generating revenue to improve the businesses.
Research into this area has noticed how as a new work culture we work in an open plan condition, which saves on costs as less square footage is rented. This however has been proven to hinder efficiency, providing no regard to issues such as confidentiality and concentration.
A few other factors that have been proven to show importance in the work place in terms of ranking from most important to the least, are space; providing an adequate break out area and ensuring enough space is given between desks can increase productivity by 4.4% providing a break out area, then there is work station design, lighting, temperature, noise and air quality. These factors can be either detrimental or assist in the performance of a business.
