Are you trying to come up with a new floor plan for your office? Be sure to read our 7 layout tips before your next office design project!

Each of the seven points in our Formaspace guide to creating an ideal office layout will help you work more productively than ever before”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, December 20, 2018 / — Is it time to remodel, expand or move into brand new office quarters? Take a scientific approach to office space planning. Each of the seven points in our Formaspace guide to creating an ideal office layout will help you work more productively than ever before, while at the same time, laying the foundation for your business to grow in the future.

Office space planning is in a state of rapid change, with more and more companies moving away from fixed offices and cubicles to an open office plan. Employers springing for these new or renovated open office layouts are hoping to see quick concrete results from their real estate investments. Some of the most common goals are:

-Attracting and recruiting new talent to the company.
-Promoting innovation and productivity at work.
-Breaking down information silos.
-Keeping real estate costs down in expensive markets by increasing density.

On the other hand, current employees and potential recruits may have differing opinions about open office layouts. While younger Millennials employees often prefer open office floorplans (which feel as comfortable as working in their local coffeehouse), older workers may find the change uncomfortable due to the perception of privacy loss and increased noise.

Navigating to find a solution that satisfies these competing goals and perceptions is not straightforward. We’ve gathered together a seven-point process to help guide you as you take on the process of managing your office space planning challenges.

1. Understand Your True Office Space Planning Requirements

If you are opting for a new office or renovating your existing office layout, start by writing down the top three reasons (in priority order) for this decision.

Sometimes the reasons are clear-cut; there is a new merger or acquisition, the lease is up, the company is moving to a new location, or there is a need for space consolidation between existing divisions or departments. Other reasons might be less straightforward; nonetheless, you should take the time at the beginning of the planning process to understand, verbalize, and challenge each of your assumptions. For example, if you have run out of room, could you increase the density of your office by redesigning your current office; that’s often much cheaper than moving. What if you are simply not satisfied with your current office layout? Could renovation be the answer?

Next, identify the top three goals you have in mind for the new space. Possible responses could include: preparing for future growth, increasing productivity and efficiency, projecting a more modern brand to internal and external audiences, instilling a sense of pride in your employees, and making it easier to attract younger talent.

Now you should investigate what other companies in your industry are doing to discover any ‘best practices’ that you can learn from. The requirements for an architect’s office will be as different from a software company as the office of a law firm will be from a call center, so inform yourself. Take tours of other well-regarded offices, or use social media, Glassdoor and YouTube to learn about current office layout trends. Collect your thoughts by creating a large “mood board” with pinup suggestions that you have collected. These notes will be invaluable in working with your space planner or architect.

Reflect on your top three goals as you look at the functions of each of the departments in your office. If your goal is to reduce real estate costs by increasing density, how will that affect each department individually? If one of your goals is to encourage innovation and break down silos, which departments should be co-located together?

You may have goals for the company that will involve everyone, such as getting people to work as one team. These might lead to space requirements for a space large enough to hold all-hands meetings or a cafeteria where everyone eats together.

Finally, be sure to account for practical requirements, such as providing room for the company to expand, space for technology, such as computer servers, or allocating sufficient departmental storage. With an open office plan, files still need to be available but held in secure storage compartments to maintain confidential company information.

2.The Right Office Layout Design Helps Build Your Company Brand

What kind of company brand are you trying to project to the world and impress on your internal company culture? People make up their minds quickly. Visitors to your company will create a positive or negative impression within a matter of seconds, so creating a visual image that supports your company’s vision and brand is more important than ever.

Ask yourself the question: “Who will visit your office?” Is it a so-called ‘back-office’ that doesn’t receive visitors? Or is it a high-profile office headquarters that will receive visiting customers, potential recruits, investment analysts, or members of the press on a regular basis?

The visual design of your office also sends a strong message to your workforce. It can inspire your employees by affirming your company values and that you care about them and what they do.

Some of the more important office designs trends to familiarize yourself with are the industrial-look designs, which often employ an urban loft look that emphasizes authenticity through raw materials and tall open spaces. Another office design approach that is currently trending is the incorporation of comfortable home design features, such as comfortable sofas and other residential features that make the office feel like home.

3. Today’s Careful Office Space Planning Will Help Prepare You For Future Growth

Growth is the goal of every business.

But how can you plan for it?

Let’s state this in a different way to come up with an answer.

Growth is simply a desirable form of change. So to be successful in office space planning, we need to provide ways to accommodate future change.

One of the all-time great inventions in the world of office space planning for managing change is modular furniture. Why? It can be installed quickly; it’s practically indestructible; it looks modern and fit for purpose, and, most importantly, as your needs change, it can be extended with more components (in a year or in ten years’ time), or it can be re-assembled on site to create new layout designs.

And, if you are leasing office space, you can negotiate whether modular furniture is a leasehold improvement or not, so you can disassemble and remove it without penalty to take to your next office location. This not only preserves your investment, it can even help you earn LEED sustainability credits when you move.

4.Encourage People To Collaborate Without Suffering The Downsides

High on the list of goals for many employers contemplating a new office layout is improving productivity by encouraging collaboration between workers.

This can be a fantastic benefit of investing in a new office design — if done correctly.

According to research done by Cornerstone OnDemand (whitepaper report available upon registration), the hot zone for collaboration is a maximum radius of 25 feet. Researchers found a 13 percent gain in productivity and a 17 percent gain in effectiveness by seating high-volume contributors next to high-quality contributors. In blunt terms, the study found the quality of work produced by high-volume contributors improved while the high-quality contributors produced work output more quickly.

One potential downside is the need to manage those whose behavior is disturbing or distracting to others (termed toxic behavior by Cornerstone researchers). We’ve also prepared some guidelines for office managers to assist with issues of bullying and mobbing in the workplace.

The distraction of noise in open office spaces is another concern that needs to be addressed during the open office planning stage. If you are fortunate to be constructing a new office building, there are many opportunities in the design/build process to isolate unwanted ambient noise and vibration. Different generations of workers may react differently to the issues of noise and privacy in the workplaces. While Millennials may put on a big set of noise-canceling headphones and listen to music when the ambient office noise gets too loud, older workers may become discouraged. Fortunately, there are additional strategies for reducing noise in existing leased office space, including creating dedicated quiet spaces where employees can concentrate on difficult tasks.

Collaboration opportunities are not limited to the desk areas in modern office designs. If your office layout goals include creating more opportunities for spontaneous meetings and exchanges of ideas, be sure to allocate the space for casual meeting areas with comfortable seating in addition to cafeterias (which can double as assembly areas, as mentioned in point 1 above).

Finally, don’t overlook the collaborative benefit of providing adequate conference room space. Include provisions for telepresence communications to increase the impact of conference calls with suppliers, customers, and partners

5. Create Healthy Workspaces For More Productive Employees

The best time to ensure a healthy, safe place for employees to work is during the office design phase.

Avoid accidents caused by slips, trips, and falls (STF) by creating open, well-lit, non-slip pathways with secure hand-holds on steps. Ensure that storage is secure. If any item in your office requires heavy lifting, either design away the requirement using custom furniture solutions or create custom mechanized lifts to prevent injuries. Remember, according to Liberty Mutual, overexertion due to excessive lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, carrying, or throwing is the top cause of worker injury.

Make sure that your employees have ergonomic desks and seating that conforms to their size and proportions. And beware of the need to move throughout the day to avoid the health consequences of sitting too much. Formaspace sit-to-stand desks and benches allow your employees to raise and lower their entire work surfaces at the touch of a button for improved cardiovascular health.

Why Maximalism is the Design Trend Dominating 2018 – Connie Bandfield

Maximalism is the reaction to the minimalist trend which has been dominating all facets of design in recent years. Connie Bandfield explains.

MELBOURNE, FLORIDA, USA, December 19, 2018 / — In the last decade minimalism has come to the forefront as a remedy for excess consumerism and material goods. It manifested itself in a variety of different arts and disciplines, from art itself, music, fashion and, pertinent to this article, interior design. And while there is a lot of merit to minimalism, there has been a strong reaction to its spartan ways. According to Connie Bandfield, this trend is called maximalism and is a design aesthetic which focuses on unbridled expression as opposed to toned-down minimalism. We will explore it more below.

What is Maximalism?

Maximalism takes it point of departure from the phrase “more is more”. Connie Bandfield insists that unlike minimalism, which makes a concerted effort to reduce the amount of material belongings in your home for a more svelte and refined look, maximalism is about overdoing it in an effort to bring color, patterns and personality back into different rooms and spaces. Generally these designs tend to be pretty eccentric, eclectic and visually overwhelming.

How do I achieve Maximalism?

“At first glance maximalistic rooms might seem like a mess,” Connie Bandfield says. “But there’s actually a not so subtle art to pulling it off.” For starters, you’re going to need an eye for balancing striking and bold colors with more muted ones. You need to be able to see how loud colors and rich fabrics can come together with intricate patterns and textures without clashing to the point of becoming a huge mess. Once you have this, it’s about finding pieces that can compliment each other, and then bringing them all together to create a room that is unique, loud and unconstrained.

“Maximalism is about filling a space with everything you love.” Connie Bandfield says. “It’s not holding back, and there are no rules to cage you with. That’s part of the appeal to designs and individuals alike. It’s pure expression and a way of transferring your personality into a space – essentially turning that space into yourself. It’s priceless.”

To achieve Maximalism, start from the beginning. Paint a room a bold color like yellow or green. Bring in loud furniture and juxtapose materials and patterns. Ensure, however, that everything is organized so that, while bright and colorful, your room is not a chaotic mess, but rather a beautiful balance.

How to Fix the Problem of so Few Women in STEM (Part II)

Girls in STEM

Girls in STEM

What can be done to influence young women to achieve success in STEM careers. Read how they can pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Too often, it seems that young women and girls learn about the exciting careers of men and less about women who have equally prominent positions.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, December 4, 2018 / — Here in part two of our series, “Why Do Women Hold Just 24% of STEM Jobs in the USA?” we take a look at how to encourage young women and girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The need for change is great.

At a time when an increasing number of baby boomer workers are retiring, employers are facing a major shortage of talented, high-tech STEM workers, it makes no sense for half of the potential candidates, e.g., women, to feel excluded or unwelcome from these interesting, well-paid careers.

What can be done to influence young woman and girls to achieve success in STEM careers?

Here are five practical suggestions to act on — in your community, your school, and in the work environment:

1. Celebrate Role Models That Inspire Young Women To Achieve Success In STEM Careers

What inspires us to pursue an interesting and successful career, one that we feel passionate about?

Career choices come about as a result of many factors.

Sometimes, a chance coincidence will play a major role, while in other cases, the influence of a favorite teacher will inspire an academic career, or jobs traditionally held by family members will help determine a future career path.

But let’s not overlook the powerful influence of role models. Exposure to the stories of leading scientists, mathematicians, company presidents, and other prominent individuals can have a remarkable influence on young minds, inspiring them to pursue a career that they may not have considered before.

Too often, it seems that young women and girls learn about the exciting careers of men and less about women who have equally prominent positions.

Why not take the time to learn about the inspiring careers of some of the leading women in science and industry so that you can share these role models with young people? Here are some useful examples to add to your storytelling repertoire:

-Joy Adamson, Naturalist and Conservationist

International best-selling author Joy Adamson wrote the book “Born Free” about her experiences living in Kenya in the 1950s, where she rescued an orphaned lion cub named Elsa. The book and the 1966 film adaptation are inspirational works that can help young people learn about natural science, species preservation, and the importance of wildlife and the environment.

-Hedy Lamarr, Wireless Telecommunications Inventor and Hollywood Movie Star

Lauded for her beauty and captivating presence on the silver screen, Austrian immigrant Hedy Lamarr took Hollywood by storm in the 1930s. Yet the movie business and its superficial social scene bored Lamarr, who occupied her mind by reading technical journals, inventing new products, and consulting to Howard Hughes’ aviation business. During World War II, Lamarr invented a frequency hopping radio transmission scheme that evaded eavesdropping and jamming. The technique is still used in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication to this day. The 2017 film Bombshell tells the Lamarr story.

-Jennifer Doudna: Developer of CRISPR/Cas9

Jennifer Doudna, a molecular biology and chemistry professor at the University of California, Berkeley, has led the efforts to unlock the secrets of how to edit our DNA sequences, which is considered one of the most significant discoveries in the history of biology. The CRISPR/Cas9 gene edition technique holds the promise of preventing or curing diseases at the cellular level, ranging from cystic fibrosis and HIV to Huntington’s disease.

-Limor “Ladyada” Fried: Hacker & Engineer, Founder of AdaFruit

MIT engineering graduate Limor Fried founded the phenomenon known as AdaFruit in 2005. This woman-owned company looms large in the hacker and maker movement. Dubbed “LadyAda,” Fried hosts frequent video podcasts on the AdaFruit YouTube channel that teach young people how to create their own electronic projects and inventions. Fried’s unconventional, yet relatable style has inspired young women and girls to experiment with STEM-oriented projects by providing high-quality products, inspirational tutorials, and an unassailable joie de vivre.

2. Promote Participation In STEM Career Development Activities For Young Women And Girls
You can also help young women and girls become more aware of STEM career opportunities by creating or taking part in events designed to connect young people with technical careers.

Here are several annual events to provide inspiration:

Feb 4, 2018: Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day

As part of National Engineers Week, the new Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day program helps connect young women and girls with women working in the field of engineering. We also recommend reviewing Business Insider’s list of the 43 most powerful female engineers of 2017.

February 11, 2018: International Day of Women and Girls in Science 11 February

According to the United Nations, male students are 2 to 3 times more likely to earn a Bachelors, Masters, or Doctor’s degree in science-related fields. To increase awareness of this level of gender inequality, the United Nations declared the 11th of February as the annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science. To learn more about the importance of women in science roles, we also suggest checking this list of 91 famous women scientists.

April 26, 2018: Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day

Originally founded in 1992 as Take Our Daughters to Work Day by the leaders of the Ms. Foundation for Women, this annual event expanded in 2003 to include boys as well. The idea is for boys and girls to learn about opportunities and explore careers at an age when they are more flexible in terms of their gender roles.

This is also an ideal day to teach young women and girls about successful women in industry leadership roles. Check out our article “Celebrating Leading Women in Industry” for information about leading female CEOs in the high-tech and manufacturing industries, including:

-Phebe Novakovic, CEO of General Dynamics
-Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors
-Renee James, former CEO of Intel
-Ginny Rometty, CEO of IBM

Oct 5, 2018: Manufacturing Day

As the manufacturing world accelerates into what some experts are calling the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it’s also facing a looming talent crisis. With more and more Baby Boomers retiring each month, there simply aren’t enough qualified candidates with the necessary STEM skills available to meet the demand. Today’s manufacturing careers require high levels of technical expertise in order to design, develop, manage today’s digitally-based production techniques, such as 3D printing and sensor-driven Internet of Things-based tools.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to recruit young women as well as men to this growing and rewarding sector.

MUNICH, GERMANY, December 4, 2018 / — Cyber-criminals often aim at the unprepared. But 86% of attacks against manufacturers in 2018 weren’t opportunistic – they were specifically targeted, and nearly half aimed at stealing intellectual property to gain competitive advantage [Verizon DBIR 2018].

There is no technological panacea to save manufacturers from hackers – collaboration is the best route towards cyber resilience. With this in mind, the European Cyber Security Summit for Critical Manufacturing (ManuSec) unites 100+ leading IT and OT security experts to share takeaways from real-life incidents and promote peer and cross-sector alliance.

Taking place in Munich, 7th-8th of February 2019, ManuSec is the platform for European manufacturing leaders to assess how to fully reap the rewards of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
2019’s key themes include the convergence of Industrial Control Systems and enterprise infrastructure, conducting OT asset inventories and risk assessments, and using cloud services and mobile devices securely in the production environment.

Curated in partnership with a Steering Committee of security experts – including the CISO at HELLA and the Head of Cyber Security at Airbus- the agenda features panel presentations, interactive debates, table discussions, and 6+ hours of networking.

A highlight of day 1: Schneider Electric’s CISO EMEA and the OT Cyber Security Manager share the stage to present a real-life case study about integrating ICS security into Schneider Electric’s enterprise risk management programme. Request a brochure for a detailed programme and full line-up of speakers.
2-Day Conference Passes also include: seated lunches, refreshments during networking sessions, a PDF copy of all presentations, and CPD certification. Use code: Manu35 for 35% Off online at:
