Office Space Planning: How much Office Space do you need per Person?
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.
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
