Universal State Space Standards


An “open office” policy that utilizes a universal workstation design has been adopted as the state’s space management standard approach. As an enhancement to worker satisfaction and productivity, this design allows natural light to be shared by more employees and promotes team work and information sharing. As an enhancement to worker comfort, an open plan without demising partitions between units within a department significantly increases the efficiencies of heating and cooling systems which in turn reduces energy usage.
