PUGSLEY, D. and HAYNES, B. P. (2002). An alternative use of space in government office accommodation. Facilities, 20 (1/2), 34-40.Full text not available from this repository.
Considers how traditional office design is no longer appropriate for new ways of working and the changing nature of work. Describes the remit of a pilot project launched under the UK Government's 'modernizing governments' agenda, to redesign office space, improving space efficiency and providing a better range of work settings more suitable for the needs of teams and groups. Reports the development of the design strategy, and drawing on earlier studies discusses office space and design considerations and the need to take account of the human resource element when proposing new ways of working design. Presents the findings of a survey of the occupants of the redesigned working environment in relation to space identity, workstation utilization and the use of shared facilities. Confirms an overall satisfaction with the office facilities, environmental conditions and information and communication technology.
