New construction requires the consumption of large quantities of non-renewable resources. This means upgrading existing structures is a critical strategy in green office design. San Diego companies that want to reduce their emissions and use of fossil fuels need solutions that are both environmentally friendly and cost effective. A well planned approach to greening your office is one that saves energy, reduces waste, and improves sustainability. This increases profitability rather than placing an added burden on employers.
Minimize Your Real Estate Footprint and Your Carbon Footprint
In California, cooling costs account for a significant portion of energy expenditures for the typical work environment. The smaller the area you have to cool, the lower your electric bill (and your monthly lease payment). That's why maximizing use of space is an important part of any solution for a green office. San Diego workspace planning consultants at Cubicles Office Environments know how to optimize and integrate these cost reduction strategies as a normal part of the planning process.
Partner with the Right Manufacturers
Another sustainable, cost-saving aspect of office planning involves material and product selection. Green furnishings feature recycled materials instead of relying on mining and other destructive resource extraction technologies to provide raw materials.
You can also select furniture that is designed with components that are cross-functional across the full range of a manufacturer's product line. This means you can add on as needed without having to dispose of obsolete items. We can deliver all the top brands of office furniture from companies that have cradle-to-cradle certification. This means you have lots of green choices.
Make a Difference for Your Employees
Individual workspaces don't have to feel cramped when you restructure your office interior. In fact, proper planning can increase the sense of openness even if the overall square footage of your office is reduced. Honeycomb shaped workstations are one example of systems furniture that can help you accomplish this objective. You can also incorporate space-saving components such as panel mounted LCD computer monitors.
Open designs are an option that promotes air circulation. That's another factor that is important in green building design. San Diego is an area with plenty of sun and a temperate climate. We can help you arrange your workstations to take advantage of natural light and ventilation. This can help reduce reliance on industrial HVAC systems and the amount of CO2 your company generates.
You Don't Have to Plan Alone
The decisions you make early in the planning process directly affect the choices that will be available later when it comes to selecting and placing your furniture.
