Do You Offer Office Space Planning Services?

Yes, we do offer office space planning services. Our team at Access Interiors assists in designing and optimising office spaces to meet your needs, giving a productive and pleasing work environment.

A well planned office space can increase performance and efficiency of working practices, improve interdepartmental communication, boost morale and can even save you money in reducing running costs. Our experienced office space planning team can work with any brief, no matter how abstract, to improve the layout of your existing office space. We specialise in creating functional office spaces in either an open plan, closed plan or a hybrid design that suits your needs.

As part of the process we will take a detailed brief, identifying the key areas where improvements need to be made. This may be that you need to add extra seating into an already squeezed desk space or you may need to make room for larger meeting areas or add in more kitchen facilities.

Our space planning team can provide some really creative solutions to help you to make the best use of your available space; from adding mezzanine floors to installing operable walls or even reducing desk sizes to make room.
