Though office and commercial interiors are generally considered to be low-risk workplace environments, they still, however, contain numerous health and safety hazards. As such, they require close monitoring and tight inspection in order to reduce the risk of incidents, preventing serious health issues in the office environment.
As experienced office interior designers, our role is to not only design a workspace that looks good, but takes into account many elements that make it an exceptional place for all to work. Along with making a statement about your corporate identity, it needs to be functional from a OHS perspective; recognising the importance of components incorporated into design such as sit/stand desks in a workplace.
When it comes to hiring employees and keeping them happy, the importance of a well-designed commercial and office interior cannot be understated.
The designed workspace of Melbourne today is becoming increasingly modern, as commercial interior designers are moving away from traditional enclosed office layouts and compact cubicles towards more open offices and wider ‘cubicle-less’ cubicles. These ‘collaborative spaces’ are instead surrounded by glass walls to reduce divisions between workspaces and indeed, employees and employers. For these reasons, clever office design looks at Privacy and Acoustics and solutions in the modern day open desk office environment.
