Sustainable Office Design

 

Sustainable Office Design is a  great way for businesses to both help with the environment and save  considerable money in the long-term.

 

Obtaining a sustainable office is  partly achieved by using sustainable materials i.e. re-cycled plastics, timber  from sustainable forests etc. Its also  about utilising your access to natural light and air using low energy  technology also choosing materials/products which do not give out high levels  of carbon dioxide and other damaging chemicals.

We feel that by considering even one of the very simple achievable options below a considerable contribution could be made to saving the planet. 

  •  Maximising space
  •  Considering the environment when choosing your energy source
  •  Using sustainable materials wherever possible
  •  Operating a recycling policy within the workplace
  •  Recycle all products possible
  •  Maximising the availability of access to fresh air
  • Sub-metering of electricity and water
  • Zonal control of your heating and lighting
  • Obtaining a sustainably built building/office
  • Sourcing eco friendly companies when purchasing supplies or materials
  • Reduce energy loads where possible
  • Turn machinery of or to standby when not in use

To achieve an effective sustainable office various aspects need to be taken into account for example the overall cost involved, the viability of the space available, energy use available, support and willingness of staff to participate where necessary.

It is a well publicized fact that over 65% of office staff want to contribute to saving the environment but have no idea how to achieve this.  Research has shown that members of staff who work within offices /workspaces which have natural lighting and ventilation are far happier and productive, more relaxed and less likely to high absenteeism due to minor illnesses.
