The office design must take into account the physical layout of workstations and the material elements and the location of services to staff and public, should not omit consideration of those physical factors that contribute to the creating a conducive working environment.
When designing your office is important to consider and eliminate or reduce negative effects caused by environmental factors must be taken into account:
• Lighting: diffused light is recommended in preference to direct illumination, with it you tend to avoid the contrast between the shadows and brightly lit. Indirect lighting systems are most appropriate to achieve diffuse illumination, but are much more expensive than direct lighting. When we use fluorescent tubes, are not advised for exposed installation, but rather recommended the placement of translucent acrylic screens.
• Natural light: it believes that the most appropriate to achieve is to provide diffuse illumination to the gaps or to be receiving the light, this must come from the left side of jobs.
• Colors “area is not advisable to use the white surfaces or walls that are to receive direct light, or use tones with deep purple or gray trend because it is depressing, like the red tones with a tendency to produce intense irritability and excitement . The trend colors light green or blue are considered psychologically cold and sedatives, so it is recommended for use in rooms facing south or warm areas, the colors tending to ocher, cream or beige convey the sensation of heat, so it is preferable to use in targeted local areas north or cold predominates.
• Temperature: the range recommended for the development of administrative activities are between 18 and 22 ° C. besides the use of facilities capable of maintaining the proper temperature, use of appropriate colors, can counteract psychologically, within certain limits, the excess or defect of the dominant temperature. The air must be completely renewed three times per hour, using extraction equipment or air conditioning facilities to achieve a considerably higher refresh rate of up to ten times per hour.
• Sound insulation: the problem of noise becomes most important when the work takes place in common rooms and even sharper when using concentrations of equipment or machines. The volume of noise is measured in decibels, a unit so that approximately corresponds to a minimum detectable variation of intensity by the human ear.
A room for administrative activities, it is considered noisy when the order is achieved units from 55 to 58 decibels. Figure that in practice it often goes far beyond to reach 70 decibels, especially when equipment and machines involved. In areas of heavy traffic, often used double glazing, consisting of plates separated by an air chamber and mounted on rubber seals.
The diffusion noise is reduced by any kind of procedures that prevent reflection of sound as panels of fleece and perforated cardboard walls and ceilings, plaster or porous materials, flooring materials, noise dampers, training of local chambers means separations common.
