Different reasons to improve your office layout
Give a good impression
When you invite a client on your organization's premises, it's the design of your office that shapes the first impression. Whatever modern or innovative products and services you offer, if the design of your office is not on point, it will probably send the wrong message to the client.
You should consider reamping your office design and layout but not just to make a good first impression. As an employer, you also need to think about the people who work for you. Changes in the office refresh the atmosphere, establish a corporate culture, instill positivity in the minds of employees and motivate them to work better. This inevitably stimulates workforce productivity, which can have beneficial effects on company growth.
Employee and customer safety are another reason to redesign. When done professionally, office renovation or interior design ensures that the construction and all its components comply with safety regulations, including fire protection and other regulations, such as accessibility for people with disabilities. They incorporate floor safety, adequate ventilation and spacious exits.
Reduce maintenance costs
Spacia designs offices to make them more efficient and help you reduce maintenance costs. We take care of the following elements: upgrading the air conditioning and heating system, improving insulation and optimizing natural lighting.
Use the space more efficiently
Companies often move into their offices without making the best use of the available space. Excessive clutter, lost items, and cramped working conditions can lead to office conflicts. Taking more time to locate, store or retrieve items can slow employees down.
Make room for growth
Encourage development and ensure that your company can meet growing demand by giving it plenty of room to grow. Office renovations should consider the company's development plans. Within the next five to ten years, offices can be redesigned to allow for expansion. Smart redevelopment decisions can, in fact, help your business stay in the same location as it grows.
Integrate new technologies
If your workspace design hasn't been refreshed or redesigned in several years, your layout may lag behind the times in terms of technology. You may want to consider upgrading your office to include new systems (computers, screens, projection systems, etc.).
Reorganize the team
An office renovation can help you restructure your employees' assignments to help them communicate better and be more effective in their future work.
Create a new conference room
The meeting room is arguably one of the most important spaces in a work environment, as it is in this room that some of the most important decisions are made. It is in this room that your clients will spend the most time and that your employees get away from their work environment to become a little more creative. This room should be both stimulating and relaxing.

Our work process
First, we get to know you. This first step allows us to fully understand your needs, objectives and expectations. Preparatory studies consist of analyzing your current situation and making recommendations for the realization of your project.
- Exploratory meeting with the client to define needs, determine objectives and establish the project's budget, feasibility and schedule;
- Space survey, complete inventory of existing equipment and furniture that will be kept;
- Analysis of the organizational structure according to the determined objectives;
- Space analysis and validation of the feasibility according to the functional and technical program developed;
- Definition of the marketing stakes according to the brand image and technologies.
The design of your office furniture project is one of the most important phases. It will guide both the physical needs and the aesthetic layout of the space to be created. With a well-established concept, the success of your project is assured.
- Conceptual research regarding the treatment of the space, the orientation of the choice of materials and finishes including coloring, lighting, furniture and accessories;
- Definition of budget objectives and breakdown of project costs at the design stage;
- Planning and programming of interior spaces using the reference system;
- Creation of customized furniture;
- Research and advice for exterior cladding, if required;
- Creation of 3D sketches and presentation models.
Our company will highlight potential hidden costs that can add significant delays and additional expenses to the renovation.
Once the concept has been established and the expectations well defined, we carry out preliminary plans to concretely represent all the elements previously analyzed. It is at this stage that the various interior design possibilities take shape.
- Preliminary interior office layout plan;
- Preparation of plans, elevations and standard details necessary for a good understanding of the project;
- Drafting of summary specifications;
- Construction cost estimate and value analysis.
Plans and technical specifications
This last step gathers all the information previously determined for the realization of your project. The plans and technical specifications are the final plans, which explicitly direct the construction work.
- Final layout plan;
- Demolition plans and specifications;
- Construction plans and specifications;
- Technical elevations;
- Cabinet work plans;
- Plans and specifications for materials and finishes;
- Door, woodwork and hardware schedules;
- Plan of the reflected ceiling (selection and positioning of lighting fixtures);
- Plan of electrical, telephone and computer needs;
- Plumbing plan (selection and positioning of plumbing fixtures);
- Coordination with engineers for mechanical, electrical, structural and fire protection work.
