With budgets under pressure and services under scrutiny, your workspace will need to work harder and be smarter.
Our depth of experience, along with our place on the new CCS framework, make us the public sector’s perfect partner for workspace change.
Understanding what makes a space work is one thing. Understanding how public sector organisations work is quite another. Our expertise in both allows us to deliver on projects, whilst seamlessly navigating common complexities.
Ergonomic furniture is built around the needs of the human body. An ergonomic workspace is built around the needs of the workforce. It's designed for diversity, taking into account the needs of every single employee. Design has to be driven by consultation - which is exactly why we developed our Next Office™ process.
Implementing agile working practices in Blue Light Services can generate sizeable cost and space savings and significantly improve productivity, as we have shown through our work with both Kent and Hampshire police and fire services. Facilitating improved employee collaboration through effective workplace design is at the heart of what we do.
Expenditure in the charity sector is closely scrutinised with every pound spent accounted for. In this context, office refurbishment can be perceived as an unnecessary extravagance. However, our experience working with some of the largest charities in the UK shows that the efficiency savings made through effective workplace planning easily justify the cost of fit-out.
The workspace is the key facilitator of smarter working. We believe it’s about these three pillars working in harmony:
Your environment shapes not only how people work, but also how well they work. We can design around diverse needs to create a space that supports all approaches - allowing people to be at their most effective, regardless of the task or preferred work style.
Humans are social animals - and that holds just as true in a work environment as anywhere else. Creating a space that allows people to interact in productive, positive ways - whether they're on task or off - has a huge impact on organisational culture. And few things drive performance like a healthy culture.
As the devices at our disposal become ever smarter, our dependence on them increases. That means a space can't truly enable productivity unless it also supports the tools that deliver it. Our designs consider how teams can make the most of their tech - when and where they need it.
