Efficient and effective use of office space

May 16, 2012

The importance of a well-planned and finished working space cannot be underestimated. If you get this right, you can boost staff morale and productivity and at the same time keep your costs to a minimum.

The good news is, it’s now quick and easy to source superb items of office furniture online that can help you to enhance your premises.

Office building receives acclaim

One firm that has been making the most of the best provisions around is Interserve. It occupies the carbon-free Passivhaus building in Watermead Business Park, Syston, the Leicester Mercury reports.

Recently, the construction won the East Midlands Project of the Year award from the Chartered Institute of Building. It was also highly commended during the East Midlands Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors awards.

Cutting costs

The premises, which spans 6,000 square feet, has been designed to cut energy costs by up to 90 per cent. It is also intended to offer a modern environment that is in tune with the natural elements.

It features a series of membranes to minimise heat loss and there is also triple glazing and insulation in the foundations. The utility costs associated with running the building are estimated to be just £2,800 a year.

Commenting on the project, Tom Watkinson of Raynsway Properties, which owns the Watermead Business Park, said: “Passive energy efficiency has to be the principal focus in delivering a low carbon development. The excellent collaborative approach on Watermead between the architect, consultants and the delivery contractor ensured energy efficiency was built into the fabric and structure of the building for its entire life span.”
