Many businesses have made significant investments in documenting and specifying their standards. When working with such a company for the first time, after receiving all of the documentation, arrange to visit a built-out space. Seeing the physical manifestation of their standards, as well as understanding the space and how it is being used, will assist in the deployment of the standards in the future.
Designing to Corporate Standards
Corporate standards for office interior design are critical to any organization’s ability to normalize and set consistent expectations for real estate development. They also provide human resources benefits, because they ensure that employees receive consistent work spaces without prejudice. Standards help reinforce branding through architecture, and achieve a level of space performance at an anticipated cost.
