Trends in office design and layout have changed rapidly in recent times. Here are some of the key trends we have witnessed during the year so far at Procol.
Adding breakout areas to an office environment offers benefits to employers and employees alike. They provide a space to meet and collaborate, and a change of scene that inspires fresh thinking and new ideas.
Businesses and facilities managers are always looking for opportunities to make cost savings. Replacing an old heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system with a modern hybrid version can result in some welcome efficiencies.
The latest innovation in ergonomic office furniture, the Back App chair, offers a unique solution for office workers woth poor posture or lower-back pain.
In this first of an occasional series of profiles of the Procol team, we chat to Roy Bertuallo about his in-depth experience of office design, the projects that really float his boat, and his forthcoming sailing trip from the UK to Malta.
1 April 2016 saw the launch of Global Asbestos Awareness Week (GAAW). The campaign aimed to raise awareness of the risks associated with asbestos. Although banned in the UK, asbestos is something we often encounter during our work.
Are you planning a new data centre that may need to grow over time, or developing a server room where space is proving a challenge? If so, we think the new range of TurboChill™ Water Cooled air conditioning units may form a valuable part of the solution.
Traditionally, the desk is each office worker's personal space. However, due to changes in the way people work and the need for more flexible working environments, are we seeing the death of the desk?
Yahoo famously stopped their employees from working at home, while companies such as PC manufacturer Dell have become well known for making use of remote working. No matter who is right, the debate once again thrusts the effects of working environments on productivity into the spotlight.
We are always open to new products and solutions that deliver greater flexibility or performance, and were impressed by the new SmartCool™ i-drive precision air conditioning (PAC) system by British manufacturer Airedale Air Conditioning.
