In the News: All Makes’ FAQs on COVID-19 Office Solutions
- How and why are office spaces currently being reconsidered for social distancing/more employees working from home?
- Many reports today are concluding that the office is far from dead, with businesses likely to
embrace more remote working practices in the future. Offices will become a buzz with activity in
the future as more businesses embrace office designs promoting innovation, creativity, and
team collaboration. Surprising for many companies has been their employees can work
remotely, be productive, and stay connected.
- What does the future look like for these spaces?
- Organizations want their people back in the office, but they need to be safe environments for all.
Settings need to have either 6 feet of distance between the next closest employee or have a
space divider that is at least 54 inches high. Neither is a small task today with the evolution of
the open plan office.
In the past few years, the panels are lower or gone completely, spaces more open and work
areas denser than ever before. As employees return to the office, they will see more space
between their coworkers and dividers of many types to shield them while working. Glass,
acrylic, plexiglass, vinyl, and certain new fabrics all satisfy those needs to keep people safe.
- While every job may be different, what are some of the main trends in a modern home office?
- It all starts with technology. With so many online meetings and conference calls, you better have
high-speed internet and phone communications available. All those business meetings you
attended in the office are now being hosted on video meeting/conferencing apps and will be for
- What are some ways to create the feel of working at work while still being at home to help people maintain focus?
- Always best to have a dedicated space in your home, primarily for your work. Then, with
furnishings similar to your office workspace…a chair, desk/table, monitor arm and/or a keyboard
tray, along with whatever storage makes sense. For many, this may be “the office” for a very
- What are some of the small details that people may overlook when designing their home office?
- Lighting is fundamental to productivity. Home office lighting should be focused, adjustable and
dimmable to accommodate all activities. While most often found on the desk, task lights can
have wall-mounted and floor lamp options if you would rather keep a clear work surface. To
reduce glare on your screen that can cause eyestrain, see if you can place it at a right angle or
away from windows and task lights.
Choose an office chair that works within the space while also ensuring your complete comfort.
Make your office as ergonomic and enjoyable as possible.
- For people building a new home, what are some design elements they should consider including?
- Once technology needs have been fully addressed, think of creating a space that reduces
distractions. An area that insulates the worker from disruptions in the home as well as the
reverse, not to disrupt others.
Given this opportunity, plan the layout of the office. Position the desk in the best possible
manner. If you need to see clients coming and going, line it up neatly in view of the entrance. If
you have an inspirational view to the outdoors, put the desk squarely in front of the window
- Some people may think just a desk and chair are enough. Why is it important to incorporate other elements (nature, art, etc.) into a home office?
- Just as the decor in our homes often reveal our personalities, an office can reflect the feel of our
home. An office in the home has a big advantage. It can tell the story of who you are by
displaying your talents, accomplishments, and rewards. All very personal and almost expected
in a home office setting.
- Can you discuss the latest in office and retail interior design trends?
- In this post pandemic environment, the immediate needs of our clients are straight
forward. They need equipment necessary to provide safe workplaces for their
employees returning to the office over the next few months.
Plexiglass Partitions: located in reception/waiting areas and as dividers throughout the
workspace, they are being used on long tables where many employees would work side
by side and across from each other. Also, as extenders to the top of panels for a more
isolated individual work area.
Increased Spacing: Not only will we see desks and workstations spaced farther apart,
there will be fewer seats and spread out tables in break rooms, kitchens, collaboration,
and conferencing areas. Waiting and reception areas will have fewer seats and dividers
allowing for separation.
Sanitizer Stations: Like exit signs, no matter where you are, you will be within sight of
- How has the pandemic impacted workspaces/what do post pandemic trends look like?
- As the public health crisis continues, some are continuing to work from home while
others are making their way back to the office. It may eventually become a matter of
Working from home can mean you might be all over the house, moving around from the
kitchen table to a patio or a view from another window. Technology allows for us to be
constantly connected and never far away from our work. Laptops, tablets, headsets, and
cellphones have become the norm.
If you are still working from home and have been struggling with the set-up, go ahead
and make the upgrades to a bigger monitor, better lighting, and a proper chair. These
are good investments and, not only will they help you until you get back to the office, but
those upgrades also will be waiting for you the next time you need to work from home.
Going back to the office, a much different look awaits many. Spaces are being altered
so people will feel safer being there. The open, cool-looking office with views to
everyone and natural light will give way to taller panels, tabletop dividers and spreading
out the remaining workstations. All of this being done to separate you from your coworker’s germs.
Other changes high on facility managers checklists moving forward…touchless
technology for entry points and state of the art mechanical systems to filter and bring in
fresh air. Social distancing will be factored into every design and layout for years to
The trend to reduce the amount of floor space per employee (densification) we were
seeing is beginning to reverse. We expect to see more private offices/spaces for
individuals with more distance between people in the open plan.
The direction people face is more relevant too. Many layouts will have workers generally
facing the same direction with more space between them. There will be greater spacing
and fewer seating options in shared areas.
