Designing offices and business centers is a very difficult task. Such buildings from customers are presented by special aesthetic and technological requirements.
In addition to the fact that they should be respectable, which significantly affects the image of any company, one should not forget about comfort not only for the employees themselves, but also for visitors.
The process of designing office buildings
What you need to know about the design of office buildings and what needs to be taken into account? The most important thing that needs to be done is to determine whether it is necessary to expand the internal space of the premises or whether it is planned to build a completely new building.
When expanding or adding premises, the entire planning process will be much easier. Here you will only have to accurately calculate, so that the new rooms meet all the necessary requirements.
If there is no initial information and everything needs to be started “from scratch”, then several very important nuances should be taken into account:
– how many premises should be and what tasks are facing each of them;
– It is necessary to decide whether it will be one common room, which will then be divided into separate zones with the help of partitions or is it more preferably using the corridor-cubinet type;
– Will there be a dining room (or buffet) or employees should visit the nearest cafe;
– What class should be all premises;
– how many cabinets of managers, receptions, halls for conferences should be.
And these are only the main issues that the designers will have to face.
Business center infrastructure and engineering communications
When designing office buildings, everything should be taken into account, including all engineering communications. Such business centers use quite a lot of office equipment, so it is necessary to pay special attention to the power supply.
This means that the designer should know in advance the total capacity of the equipment used in all rooms to determine which power cable to use. Do not forget about the ventilation of all premises, fire and security alarms.
In addition to the buffet or dining room, it is necessary to solve the issue with the parking lot. Even if the office building is near the metro station, there is a possibility that a certain part of the employees who will work here will have to get from the suburbs by their transport.
If there is a convenient parking lot near the business center, this will make it possible to leave their cars here to customers, investors, suppliers or just visitors of any office.
