Watch our Managing Director, Ben Hancock discuss whether end user health is being prioritised enough in office redesigns.  Our latest research shows employee welfare is falling short when adapting workspaces:

  • Almost half of (42%) architects say clients aren’t interested in ‘end-user health’, despite offering guidance.
  • ‘Inadequate budgets’ and ‘inflexible existing finishes’ stated as design challenges faced by architects (40%).
  • Just 9% of architects say acoustic design is given the attention it deserves, despite health risks caused by excessive noise.
  • 67% of architects cite ‘small design budgets’ as their biggest design challenge to noise reduction in the workplace.
