Some thoughts about office noise

What’s #1 on the list of frustrations we have with our work space?  According to researchers at the University of Sydney, it is office noise.  Nearly 60% of us who work in cubicles rate noise intrusion far above visual privacy, amount of work space, and comfort when surveyed about office distractions.  When considering your office layout, keep in mind that eliminating cubicles and moving to an all-modular office concept does not solve this problem.  In fact, loss of productivity due to noise distraction doubles in open plan offices compared to private offices.  Thus, when noise is considered, office layout is a complex problem.  Planners need to be mindful of sound privacy, collaboration, productivity, and privacy among other factors.
