Renovating Interior Office Space: What a Manager Needs To Consider.
Babey, Evelyn R.
When planning an office renovation, a manager should design an office layout that is efficient and should consider the psychological aspects of office design, including sound level, color harmony, and lighting. The manager must also have a good understanding of all phases of the project plan and the timing involved. There are basically five phases to any renovation project: the program development phase; the interior planning and conceptual design phase; the design development phase; the preparation of drawings for interior construction; and site supervision, including monitoring schedules and budgets and coordinating all parties involved in the renovation process. The manager must carefully evaluate the functions of the office, the interactions unit, traffic patterns, levels of sound and lighting, electrical and telecommunications needs, harmonious color schemes, and the needs of staff; and combine them to create a comfortable and satisfying work environment as the budget allows.
