Building your first commercial construction: a quick guide to boost your design
As decades pass, new trends arise in the design of all kinds of commercial buildings with the goal of attracting more customers, creating enjoyable environments while expressing a brand’s identity in order to produce a full sensory experience for guests to enjoy.
Selecting and developing a style is not only helpful in terms of clientele, but to generate a space where employees feel comfortable to work in. This boosts morale and productivity, and increases an owner’s chances to recruit and retain workers.
Believe it or not, efficiency is intimately linked with the right design; one that allows ease of movement and an open concept, provides comfortable work tables and seats, grants employees with a stylish environment and pleasing spaces to rest they can enjoy while doing their tasks.
Innovation and collaboration are key concepts nowadays that intelligent owners and managers try to promote by all means necessary, starting with the design. These trends, first used by companies like Google, have proven to emphasize the sense of belonging and teamwork among all members of the company’s hierarchy.
All these advantages start at the very beginning of a commercial construction. These are some of the aspects that any owner should take into account in the planning phase of their commercial construction:
Open work spaces
An open floor plan will reinforce connection and collaboration among coworkers, which for many companies is a necessity as they attempt to cultivate a culture of teamwork and bonding.
Flexible areas to work or rest
Depending on the type of the commercial construction (restaurants, lodging, office, retail, etc.), an owner can introduce several areas where the staff can work or relax. A change of scene can help boost the creativity and efficiency of any employee.
Appropriate lighting and an ‘outdoorsy’ feel
Natural light, low walls to section spaces and the addition of plants, fountains or other decorations that bring the outdoors in as much as possible allow employees to feel energized and less disconnected from the outside world.
Whether an owner is building a restaurant or planning a renovation, taking these considerations into account in the building process will improve the workflow and overall efficiency of the business.
