As more and more companies are starting to realise the incredible advantages offered by office refurbishment in Berkshire, office designs continue to become more extravagant as businesses search for that perfect environment.
A well-planned office design, which makes the most of your brand's unique identity, will refresh a tired workplace and inject new life into your business, but it can also work to make it much harder to justify your business' environmental impact and sustainability.
Recycle & Reuse!
Office refurbishments have traditionally encouraged an 'out with the old, in with the new' attitude. However, treating office furniture as completely disposable has resulted in much higher costs for many businesses. Enlightened businesses choosing to take advantage of the best office refurbishment in Berkshire, are delivering improved working environments whilst making savings on more traditional approaches.
Even if the money that you save is immediately injected back into the design, it can result in improved recreational areas for yourself and your staff. This can encourage the creation of an atmosphere which truly takes advantage of your brand identity and provides the perfect workspace to increase employee job satisfaction.
The Issues With Recycling
The major problem with choosing to reuse or recycle existing office furniture is that your employees can often perceive the decision negatively. The idea is that a recycled office environment is a 'cheap' alternative can have a negative effect on your employee's satisfaction within their workplace.
Providers of good quality-furniture should provide warranties which are equivalent to those you can receive on new products. The installation of a trial-remodelled desk, screen or chair prior to the refurbishment can have an incredible effect on your employee's perception of recycled furniture.
Enabling your workers to see the quality of the finished products, along with the financial benefits, can help to persuade them you are making a smart, reasonable decision.
Resizing Existing Office Desks
If you are going to reuse existing furniture, particularly office desks, then you are more likely to benefit from making relatively minor changes to the existing furniture to give it a new lease of life, or to match in with the new office designs.
Resizing office desks has proven to increase the productivity of a workspace by as much as 35% and can massively lower the environmental impact of your business. Every ten office desks, for example, which have been remodelled saves around a tonne of C02. Not to mention the financial savings! Remodelling typically costs 30% less than new desk, so the cost-savings can be seen immediately.
