Space planning & ergonomics

Can greener workplaces be created merely by better planning? Without a doubt! Smart space planning not only makes a workplace more functional and less expensive. Here are our best do-it-yourself tips for space planning and ergonomics.  



A shared workplace. Good for your budget. Good for the environment.
If several people share a workplace, you save space and reduce your ecological impact.


Optimise your unused space
Transform rarely used spaces such as conference rooms into flexible potential workplaces. You increase your useful space and reduce your energy costs.


Boost the efficiency of your office space
Good planning and flexible furniture helps you utilise space to the maximum. You reduce your energy costs and take a big step towards a greener and smarter workplace.


Stand up for more efficient meetings
Use elevator desks for short meetings and when coordinating tasks. You save space and keep the participants on their toes.


Digitalise more, save paper and space
Use digital files instead of paper and folders. Optimise your work areas and save on space.


Don’t heat storage space
Don’t heat rooms that are rarely used. For example, an archive does not need to be as warm as the other work areas.


Give space to radiators
Keep furniture away from radiators. If you obstruct them, they will need to work harder and also produce less heat.


Keep windows free
Avoid tall furniture at windows and glass partitions. Windows let in natural energy in the form of sunlight and heat. Solutions are now available to store heat radiation from windows, thus reducing your heating costs.


Exercise on the job. Use the stairs.
Use the lift less and reduce your power bills. And you will be aware that everyday exercise such as using the stairs really does increase the effectiveness of “real” training such as running or working out in a gym.


Save heat. Lay carpets.
Carpets are attractive and create a pleasant atmosphere. They also reduce noise and interference, quite apart from keeping the heat better than rooms with uncovered floors.
