If you want your business to do better in 2021, you should not just focus on improving your products or services, marketing techniques, human resource management and other business processes alone. The building plays a major role in the performance of your business more than you think, and adding it to your list of critical upgrades would be a prudent move. Keep reading to discover some of the top ways to improve your new business building in 2021.
Incorporate noise reduction strategies
It’s very common for employees to lose focus or concentration and eventually become less productive due to noise. This is especially the case in buildings with open air offices or those more prone to noise. According to a research conducted by Oxford Economics, employees are more likely to prefer a quiet office environment over any other perk, indicating how hurtful and damaging noise can be.
You need to establish a plan that supports inter-space noise management. All the areas with noisy equipment, such as copiers and printers should be isolated. You also need to isolate the high noise areas like break rooms and kitchen messes from work areas.
Moreover, you can also ensure your ceilings are made with noise cancellation materials, like pre-drilled hardwood or metal with sound deadening panels on the back to control noise.
Install efficient filters and air vents
To create the right work environment, you need to optimize the building to maintain the right air quality. While there are many ways to do this, having the right air vents and filters would help you a great deal. The buildings that have poor quality versions of these components, often experience poor air quality. High quality units are less likely to break down, meaning that you’d save time and money by upgrading your building with them. The air filters, for instance, should be able to last at least six months from the day of installation before asking for a replacement.
It’s also important to note that dust, debris and other material accumulate inside ducts and filters over time. That means that you also need to make sure these units are maintained properly. Have them cleaned and inspected to avoid performance issues.
Make it more energy efficient
Being more energy efficient would help you increase your employees’ performance, reduce your energy bills and improve your property’s value. Some of the best techniques to improve your energy efficiency include:
Improving the insulation. Poorly insulated buildings are usually less energy efficient. You need to make sure your building has a high-quality insulation in place to keep it warm or cool as necessary. To do this, you can replace your windows and doors to prevent air leaks. Alternatively, you can use solid silicone sheet materials to seal the doors and windows because they allow for sufficient thermal expansion. Also, you can also insulate your electrical components to prevent energy loss.
Utilize more natural light. This would create a more productive work environment and cut down on energy costs. To achieve this, you can add more windows, fix mirrors across from window walls to reflect light into the room, and add glossy finishes and glassy objects to create a mirror effect.
Revamp the décor
A better looking workplace environment can help you achieve your business goals tremendously due to the positive effect it can have on your clients and employees. To improve your décor, simply:
Add canvas prints or new furniture. You can freshen up your workspace with quality canvas prints, as they provide an appealing style and uniqueness to work environments. There are many amazing digital canvas prints that have been specially made to create a calming effect and offer workplace visitors an excellent first impression.
Declutter the workspaces. Every business premises has a level of clutter. Clutter can make your building look chaotic and unnecessarily busy. It can have a negative impact on your employees’ peace of mind and productivity. Therefore, create a plan to declutter all the rooms in your building and implement it as soon as possible to improve your business.
Upgrading your business building in 2021 shouldn’t be difficult. To give yourself a good start, simply revamp the décor, make it more energy efficient, incorporate noise reduction methods and install efficient filters and air vents.
