So you’ve set up a new office or revamped your old one – now, how do you budget your space? While a large, open-space office is good for many working environments, there are times when you may need a more closed-off, private working space. Partitioning your office is one of the best ways to maximise the limited space that you have to work with. it’s also easier to install and change, rather than building permanent fixtures such as drywalls.
Before you go around and look for partitions, there are a couple of things you’ll have to consider before installing partitions in your office. If you keep these tips in mind, you’ll save yourself time and money when finally getting to the real work.
1. Decide what kind of partitions you need. There are several kind of partition wall systems, each designed for a specific need in your office.
2. Leave yourself some breathing room. The advantage of partitions is that they can be adjusted and moved at will – so don’t treat them like permanent fixtures. Aside from wasting the potential flexibility that partitions provide, it may also cause you more expenditures you could’ve otherwise avoided.
3. Get a professional. In case you ever miss the first two tips, a professional will always catch whatever you missed. Though most companies are hesitant to add even more expenses to their office renovation tab (especially if it’s a new setup), you can rest assured that a professional interior designer/office designer can accurately judge, estimate and outfit your place according to your needs.
While there are certainly more ways you can optimise your office fitouts for your purposes, the three tips above a good start for any new company looking to renovate their fitouts. Partitioning office space not only save time, energy, effort and money, but allow you to focus on the thing that really matters: running your business.
We have recently expanded our offices in Newcastle NSW. Speedframe was suggested to us as a cost effective, modern solution for our workstations. What we appreciated most when dealing with Speedframe, was their ability to understand exactly what our requirements were. The Speedframe team designed and installed our workstations on time and within budget. They also were able to do on site adjustments due to certain issues that we had with the floor. We are very pleased with the result and would recommend Speedframe to any business needing workstations.
I approached Speedframe as needing a modular framing system for our new waste management program. Speedframe was able to provide a flat pack solution and submitted a prototype for trials. The results of the trails were positive and we confidently awarded Speedframe the contract to provide flat packs to all our stores nationally. One thing I liked in dealing with Speedframe was their ability to fully understand the complexity of the project on hand. I found working with Speedframe a smooth and trouble free experience. I would recommend Speedframe as a competent, proactive and innovative company and Speedframe would be an excellent partner for Interior Designers and Architects.
We have used Speedframe for many years now, producing custom tradeshow displays. The Speedframe system is easy to use, it is lightweight and strong, and a perfect solution for displays that need to be assembled and unassembled quickly and easily. Additionally it is very competitively priced compared to other display systems. We have received many positive comments on our displays – and the clean, smooth lines of the Speedframe system are definitely a contributing factor to this. We would highly recommend the Speedframe system to anyone producing display and tradeshow componentry.
