Navigating a New Normal in the Workplace

smallreddiv

As we all anxiously look forward to a new normal, it’s time to start planning our office environment for when we return. The forced “Work From Home” experiment has elements that may be implemented going forward, both out of preference and necessity. There will be heightened awareness of our proximity to others, and people are likely to be more sensitive to office densities (i.e. benching stations) that have become the norm, but what has also become apparent during this crisis is that a space for teams and colleagues to gather is still paramount to creativity, collaboration, branding and culture.

The new office space may place more emphasis on gathering spaces, collaboration spaces and reconfigurable space that can serve multiple purposes. Individual and private spaces may become less dense, and include additional barriers that promote social distance.

How Can We Help?

Hughes Marino’s Planning + Design team is here to help you through your space challenges. Our team specializes in space planning of all types and densities, and is uniquely positioned to help you plan your space to respond to the new needs of your team.
