How To Furnish A Government Office

how to furnish a government office

Deciding on a new office space can be one of the proudest moments for new business owners, officials, executives and general office workers alike. Although renting a space has its benefits, moving can be trying. Recently, after 12 years of moving from rental to rental, Miami Lakes officials were able to call a new two-story government center building on Main Street their home office.

According to The Miami Herald, the 25,000-square-foot building is new and LEED-certified. The facility holds executive and administrative offices and will be a hub for all town departments. Miami Lakes officials chose to furnish the multipurpose rooms with stadium-style seating and bolted-down chairs, the paper reported.

“I wanted a building that was going to be the people’s building and serve the needs of the community,” Mayor Michael Pizzi told the Herald. “I want [residents] to say, ‘This is a beautiful building – it looks great, and it’s really going to service our needs.'”

When furnishing a public office or executive suite, the business furniture should be tasteful and serve the needs of those who will occupy the space. Hiring the help of a professional office layout designer can design the space so it meets safety codes and professional standards. The following tips may help officials or those furnishing the space choose the right business furniture for a government office.

1. Conference Areas

One of the most important components of a government building is the conference room. After evaluating the space for meeting rooms, the decorator will decide on the type of conference table that will best fit the space. Today’s conference tables come in a wide variety of shapes, including U-shaped, boat shaped, cylinder, traditional, rectangular, and square. When furnishing a public office space, a designer may want to choose a shape that is traditional but contemporary. The designer may also want to consider the technological needs of the space. Investing in conference tables with parts that hold power modules for data and access to operate computers and other presentation equipment can make the meeting space more conducive. Choosing reliable, high-quality work chairs for the conference room may help meetings run more efficiently.

2. Communal spaces

Lounges and lobby areas are other major parts of a government building. A designer may want to choose furniture that is simple but comfortable. Opulence should be avoided when planning these spaces. Instead, a designer can choose comfortable and attractive seating and tables that are the right height to serve the needs of the space. As the lobby is the first space visitors see, officials may choose timeless and sophisticated furnishings over overly ornate and over-the-top designs.

3. How To Furnish A Government Office: Administrative and executive offices

Administrative and executive offices should use comfortable and practical furniture. Since the administration may spend a great deal of time at their desks, officials may want to invest in ergonomic seating to preserve workers’ health and increase productivity.
