As experts in office design, we will first begin by a listening phase. We need to understand all the details of your initial project.

  • A listening phase during which we will employ only our tools and methods of analysis without any other consideration.
  • A listening phase necessary to understand all the stakes in the project.
  • A listening phase to be aware of how your teams work and what kind of spaces they need.
  • A listening phase to put ourselves in the position of the final users : your workforce.

This active listening is the key that comes with the maieutics necessary for the creation of your new office design: In order to carry out a fully satisfactory project, we make sure that no inherent elements are missed during this identification stage of all project expectations.

This is the best tool to be sure that we can develop a high value-added solution, a solution you will never have imagined by yourself but thanks to our experience, we can recommend it to you with total confidence.

The audit helps us identify the needs and expectations of the users. It takes place as a workshop.

To identify and sometimes enrich the first intention of your project : Commitment of the entire staff or the project team.

This audit phase consists in creative workshops which enable :

• to design the different existing or planned work prototypes in your company.

• to identify the importance of a parameter, the emergence of a particular expectation, the taking into account of a detail that might seem trivial but whose impact may become crucial.

• to make a diagnosis, without any risk of off-topic. An in-depth diagnosis which presents the technical, architectural and capability analysis of your premises and office floors.

The management can accept or reject the enrichment that will have been brought to the first project, in full knowledge of all the elements.

The other advantage of this phase concerns internal communication.

The project team organizes and prepares the communication supports for all the staff. To help them, ARCH.DESIGN takes part in the presentation meetings and provides all the necessary materials to help the visibility of the turnkey fit-out project.

Solicitating final users as soon as the process is launched is the best way of ensuring the collective adoption at the time of the workspaces project delivery and a success in the long term.

ergonomie

When identifying the various work prototypes, there is a new strong tendency in the organizational and personal ergonomics in today’s companies: the standing position. Why ?

These flexible desks or workstations enable to avoid the physical and intellectual numbness when you stay seated for too long.

A sitting/standing desk brings energy and comfort right away. A double advantage for your workforce’s health, also granted by the medical community.

These sitting/standing desks have first appeared in Scandinavia 30 years ago. ARCH.DESIGN is one of the very first companies to promote this operational solution.

The principle is as follows : an electric or pneumatic mechanism, fixed inside the base of the seat, enables the employee to modify, whenever he wants and without any effort, his work surface height.

It is up to him : according to his activity or state of mind, he can choose the position of the moment.

The advantages :

• No more back pain ! • Activation of the blood circulation • Concentration and productivity are improved…

If the body feels better, so will the mind !
