There is no prescribed minimum occupancy level for a modern office design. Within the UK Building Regulations the section dealing with Fire Hazards (Part B of the Building Regs.) advises a minimum area of 6 square metres (64 sq feet) for each person in an office premises. This figure can be achieved by equating the total headcount against the overall net internal area (NIA) and so doesn't necessarily limit the space for a single person with a desk.
Modular furniture sets are generally cheaper than buying items at retail. However, when placing your order, be sure to ask about who will assemble your furniture. Typically, the payment for the assembly will be an additional 10%-15% of the order amount. If "free" assembly is advertised, it usually means that the assembly cost is included in the price of the furniture items.
The main reason is the ease-of-use you get with these types of flexible office solutions, whether simplistic, featuring full-wall partitions or offering built-in shelving units. Even those with limited space can find the perfect office furniture solution, without sacrificing function and comfort, besides style. You will find that modular furniture can provide the multi-function capability that those in executive office suites are searching for.
Arbuckle suggests a design approach that is more socially inclusive to foster collaboration. It creates 'neighborhoods' or pods of cubicles focused around fewer, manageable numbers of employees that include executives. Lower partitions, communal work spaces, and informal meeting areas break down barriers and create a more human environment that encourages social interaction and a team atmosphere. Of course, even this idyllic arrangement is usually accomplished within a downsized space that can pose challenges and tax physical resources including space for storage.
