workplace design & furniture consultancy
supporting the interior build community
designing for covid.
Novanta are able to offer a comprehensive COVID workplace analysis for workplaces, which allows our clients to look at existing ways of working during the pandemic, but also just as importantly, how the future will look for offices POST-COVID.
Why not look at letting Novanta re-configure an existing space, without the cost of refurbishment?

FUTURE OF THE OFFICE -
There has been much written about this enigmatic subject; some of it arbitrarily governed towards commercial profit undoubtedly. However, having read many of these blogs, thoughts and ideas, we believe it can be parcelled down into three choices for the leaders of businesses:
Those who need to downsize
Those who need to re-configure
Those who need to expand
Each of these generates an opportunity for new projects and we explore this in a little more detail...
Great to see a truly new conceptual idea brought to fruition from the furniture industry.
Its been a while!
Those bright people from OB have brought us a range of meeting spaces, developed from the concept of camper vans and dens. They have a vast new range of rooms to suit the clients needs, along with a variety of trendy-looking canopies, to make the space feel extremely contemporary. Well done Orange Box....
'WHEN THE RESTAURANT IS SMALL,
BUT THE OWNER IS CREATIVE' -
Sometimes, you have to think outside the box, and in this case, a restaurant certainly did. We've always been told to use vertical space as a way of maximising area's, but this creates a COVID-able space too!
We are liking this innovative approach that we saw on linked In by Seed to Branch....
LANDLORDS & LACK OF DRAWINGS -
There are times when people in our industry come across commercial landlords without an accurate plan of their properties.
This often inhibits their ability to showcase the building to prospective clients in all its potential glory.
Novanta can alleviate this issue, by surveying and creating detailed CAD plans of the properties, and then producing stunning 3D images of potential interior designs, so that prospective clients can visualise the amazing environment they could be working in.
It also rears its head when D&B or fit-out companies are asked to look at creating designs under tight deadlines for a company who have just agreed to take a space. Without detailed plans that they can use immediately, it becomes a race against time and creates a potential for bad design.
