Space planning forms a major part of the facilities manager’s job. In view of the impact on occupancy costs, morale and working efficiency, it is important to get the layout right, whether it be a full scale office relocation, a partial reorganisation, or even a single workstation rearrangement.
Having completed floor layouts the facilities manager must translate these into a three dimensional working environment. This requires an understanding of working efficiency, aesthetics, comfort and corporate image and culture.
This popular and practical course covers the essentials of effective space planning and workplace design, and provides comprehensive documentation for future reference to take away.
