Our team of uses space planning principles to maximize worker experience and productivity, all while remaining within your budget.

Here’s how we approach office space layout for enhanced worker productivity:

1.) Ergonomics and Comfort:

  • First and foremost, comfortable employees are productive employees. Office designs should focus on ergonomic principles, ensuring that workstations and seating arrangements are conducive to good posture and reduced physical strain. Here are some examples.

  • Research shows that ergonomic improvements can lead to a significant reduction in workplace discomfort and musculoskeletal disorders, ultimately resulting in higher productivity levels.

  • According to a study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, employees who had ergonomic interventions experienced a 65% reduction in their level of discomfort and a 45% increase in productivity.

2.) Natural Light and Biophilic Design:

  • Exposure to natural light has a profound impact on mood and productivity. First Gate incorporates biophilic design principles into our layouts, emphasizing the use of natural materials, plant life, and maximizing access to daylight.
