How much Office Space per Person?

One of the easiest ways to calculate how much office space you will need is by staff headcount.  But this doesn't take into account all of your office space requirements.  If you are opting for enclosed / cellular offices, you have to consider that these take up more office space per person. Similarly, depending on the size of workstations your company has, these may take up more office space than the average space per person. 

Best practice suggests that you should allow for 150 - 250 square feet office space per person.

Other things to consider when planning office space are:

  • Number and Size of Meeting Rooms
  • Storage Space
  • Reception Area - accommodate receptionist desk & visitor seating area
  • Mail / Copier & Printer Room
  • Staff Break out area
  • Kitchenette facilities

The best way to work out how much office space per person you are likely to need in the new office is to use the free Office Space Calculator which can work out your office space requirements within seconds.  It's also advisable to work with an Office Fit-Out Company who will not only verify the calculations are adequate for your needs, they will advise on a suitable office space plan that encourages maximum productivity and an office environment in which your staff and business thrive.
