If you think it’s time to modernize your office space, you’re right. Turning your office into a tech-savvy space attracts talent, increases productivity, and increases overall efficiency, improving your business’s bottom line.
Here are some of the steps you should take to turn your office into a tech-savvy space.
Tech Savvy Transformation Tip #1: Equipment
Start with your equipment. Integrate new computers, phones, projections screens or TVs, and tablets into your office space. Now, tablets come with plugins for your TVs and projection screens that enable you to run meetings seamlessly with the swipe of a screen.
BG Southern can help you determine what equipment will be most beneficial for your team. After all, you’re not just seeking to modernize— you want to improve your current processes.
Tech Savvy Transformation Tip #2: Lighting
Did you know that technology can also improve your office’s energy efficiency? Install technology to control the lighting in the office and watch your energy bills go down as your commitment to environmentally-friendly policies improves.
Timers can turn lights on and off, so that you’re only using energy when there’s someone in the office. If, for example, your accounting team is staying late or coming in early to work on a big project, you can set the controls to provide light only to their part of the office.
BG Southern will help you to design and install new, tech-savvy lighting. Their design experts ask questions about your office’s day to day functions, which they use to make recommendations that will improve the functionality of your office.
Tech Savvy Transformation Tip #3: Work Spaces
If you walk into a modern office, you might be surprised to see that old-fashioned cubicles are going the way of the horse and buggy. Now, offices are rethinking their employees’ workspaces, with an emphasis on functionality and collaboration.
Modern work spaces take on different themes to give employees what they need for different personalities and different projects. A tech-savvy office has long tables suited to collaborative projects in one room, while another room has a quiet space in which headphones are used for audio and there are no TVs, phones, or other distractions.
Creating these disparate workspaces can result in a more complicated scope of work and more budgeting challenges. BG Southern can help. Not only will we plan the scope of work, down to such details as ensuring the wires on your mounted televisions are fully hidden, but we’ll also help you handle your budget. The budgets created by the pros at BG Southern will:
- Provide value engineering (VE) options
- Review pricing with subcontractors and discuss VE options
- Share with BG Southern financial team for evaluation
- Determine type of construction contracts required
Tech Savvy Transformation Tip #4: Walls
Walls provide function beyond separating one room from another in a tech-savvy office. For example, a glass wall can be a big enhancement to a conference room— it adds writing space beyond just a whiteboard. A glass wall also can retract in order to make the conference room larger. Or, consider dedicating a wall in your office to employees’ visions for your company. Creativity can be sparked by asking your employees to contribute ideas to a wall like this.
