How do you determine the right amount of office space for your business?

Learn How to Determine the Right Amount of Office Space for your business and use this free Office Space Calculator developed by our design team to help you design your new office.  This invaluable tool can guide you through building out a productive workspace that will inspire your staff and customers.

The current office standard on average is 150 square feet of usable floor area per employee, but this is changing rapidly as technology and the next generation enters the workforce.   Things like open floor plans, coworking space, lounge areas, and working remotely are changing the way we build and design office space in 2020 and beyond.

An architect and interior designer can create an efficient floor plan that combines the appropriate square feet per employee with the business’ functions, workflow and culture. Keep in mind that a good business space planner can help make any office space effective and efficient.
