Is your work space shrinking?

Smaller individual workstations have been trending over the past 10 years.  The once ubiquitous 8′ x 8′ has been replaced by today’s more common 6′ x 6′.  Why? As a response to businesses’ desire to make the most of every square inch of workspace, commercial office furniture has become more efficient.  For example, shelving and filing is now able to be placed in spaces that were under used in the past. 

Workstation panels, or dividers, have also been shrinking, reducing in height from 66″ a few years ago to 51 – 42″ today.  As a result, offices are more open and increased worker collaboration is happening by design.  Connecting at the office then becomes the natural evolution for a generation of younger workers raised on social networking.

At Kairos FMS, our professional interior space designers are able to balance your company’s objectives with your individual employees needs to develop an custom office space plan that ensures your office is an efficient, collaborative and productive space.  From new construction space to re-working your existing office, we have the tools to make it happen.
