Space matters regardless if it's for your home or office.
Data shows that an average person needs about 9 to 13 square
meters. However, in a
2013 British Council study, occupier density remarkably rose
over the years in most workplaces due to economic pressure and
technology enablement. This encouraged more offices to adapt to the
changes in work style.
The mean density of a workplace is pegged at 10.9 per square
meters of the net internal area (NIA) or the usable floor area of
any office space. The corporation still carries the highest density
at 13.1 square meters followed by financial insurance companies at
9.7 square meters.
CoreNet Global stated that the average space per person in an
office setting is now at 14 square meters per person. This already
went down from 16.5 square meters in 2012 and 20 to 21 square
meters back in 2010.
In an article, Kevin Cronin pointed out that corporate locators
and businesses that there are several workplace considerations to
account for. Planned growth and headcount are the top priority to
avoid reaching the occupancy limit abruptly.
It is also not one size fits all. Floor plans and layouts matter
to ensure the proper space allocation and utilization.
