Trends in Tenant Improvement
The traditional cubicled office is giving way to more open, greener work spaces, and for good reasons. Brighter, more open work spaces enhance a spirit of collaboration and creativity, and greener spaces also help you save energy and money, as well as helping the whole team feel good about what they're doing for the planet. So if you are starting to plan for a Virginia tenant improvement project, here are some things to consider:
Cut Your Energy Bills
Commercial buildings account for fully 72% of electricity consumption in the United States! Before you start a tenant improvements project is the perfect time to consider design and construction aspects that save you energy funds while going light on the planet. One major trend, of course, is to make the best use of natural light possible. Recycled glass panels can be used for dividing spaces to cut down on the need for artificial lighting. Conference rooms and private offices can relocate to the center of buildings so that more open work space is lighted by natural light. We are constantly staying abreast of the latest energy-conscious construction trends so that we can help you save money and the environment.
Design to Boost Productivity and Morale
Studies show that an efficient, well-designed office spaces can save companies money by boosting employee morale, which boosts productivity. Clever, pleasant office design also helps cut sick days. So when you start your tenant improvement project, consider that colors, materials, lighting and open spaces are important. And while natural light helps cut energy consumption, it also makes workers feel better and cuts down on eyestrain. Consider using brighter, glossier colors that reflect natural light and brighten the mood. Applying multiple colors in an area has also been shown to heighten the senses and enhance creativity.
While planning your tenant improvement project, remember that noise control strategies can help increase productivity as well. Long, hard surfaces can make sounds bounce around, but careful use of carpeting, textiles and upholstered furniture can soften the soundscape. Use acoustic batting to insulate conference rooms and private offices, and consider placing noisy equipment away from work areas where people have to concentrate.
