We have rounded up some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to office design.
1. How do I stop my office designs becoming outdated?
Staff are more likely to be motivated to spent time in the workspace if it’s a modern, comfortable and inspiring environment.

The length of the office design stage depends on the size of the project and how quickly your team can feedback on the concepts presented. The faster the communication, the less time the whole process takes.
