Keeping Cool In-Doors

Keeping Cool In-Doors Without Reaching for that Air Conditioner Remote

There are two inconvenient truths about office life during an Arabian summer. One is that it is going to get hot; extremely hot! The other is that running the air conditioning system all day every day during the stifling summer months exacts a heavy cost, not just in terms of energy bills, but also in terms of the environment.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind

Posted by Evolve Design Team on Mar 14, 2017 10:26:50 AM

We all want to stay fit and healthy, but it is not always easy, particularly when we work full time. Factor in other duties – housework, for example, or taking care of the kids – and it is easy to see why regular exercise gets squeezed out of a busy routine.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Business owners can help to make sure that there need be no compromise between working hard and staying fit. By getting the design of our offices right, we can secure health and fitness for all team members. Here’s how…

5 Ideas to Make Your Conference Room the Best it Can Be

Posted by Evolve Design Team on Mar 7, 2017 9:47:18 AM

Your office’s conference room is far more than just a place to converse and discuss issues. If it is designed correctly, it becomes an engine room for progress and strategy, a chamber in which deals are brokered and agreed upon, and a forum for innovation.

We feel strongly about this at Evolve, so we have compiled five ideas to help you get the very best out of your conference room.

1. Support Effective Presentations with Hardware and Software Combined

The conference room needs to be an arena in which a presentation can achieve the ultimate impact. To accomplish this, it will need to marry hardware and software, enabling the speaker to bring as many resources as they need into the frame.

This means powerpoints and connections everywhere they are needed, high quality WiFi internet with coverage all over the room, and interactive whiteboards or other smart pieces of tech as and when required. 

2. Smooth, Smart Design Which Doesn’t Detract from Discussion

It’s tempting to go overboard when designing a conference room for your office fit out in the UAE, but try to exercise a bit of restraint. After all, your conference room has a job to do; it is there to facilitate the right results from meetings and discussions. If you and your colleagues or partners are distracted by the décor or layout, this isn’t going to work.

Remember: minimal is the key. Make sure to use a light touch when it comes to design, and to make sure that final plans support the functions and tasks that the conference room must accomplish.

3. The Right Chair for the Right Job

Don’t overlook the seating in your conference room. Chances are people are going to be spending a long time seated in that room, and so comfort and lumbar support are vital. Invest in high-quality chairs in your conference room and reap the rewards.

4.Inclusion is Everything

Inclusion is paramount in a conference room. To properly discuss matters, and to ensure that anyone giving a presentation is able to reach all members of his or her audience with ease, the room needs to be set up accordingly.

This means, a large, open floor; circular or oval table to bring all attendees into the discussion without hierarchy; and, of course, enough room to accommodate meetings of various sizes.

5.Don’t Forget Acoustics 

Attendees need to be able to hear what is being said, so make sure to incorporate this into the design of your conference room. Consider fibreglass panelling to provide ideal acoustics, and a PA system if required to give presentations and speeches that extra little auditory boost.
