According to TheSquareFoot, with 5,000 dollars per month you can get on average 921 square feet of office workspace in San Francisco, 1,140 square feet in DC and 811 square feet in NY. The latter equivalent to three offices, a hall and a bathroom.
In turn, in smaller cities like Dallas, with the same 5,000 dollars you can get 2,599 square feet, and 2,861 in Atlanta.
These high office space rental costs and imbalances between major cities are so significant in the cost structure, some times even forcing companies to move their offices from cities in order to afford them.
By working with the above figures and assuming space requirements common to the current average productivity, the following list of annual costs for rental space per employee has been determined:
New York $14,800
San Francisco $13,032
Washington, D.C. $10,522
Los Angeles $6,702
But… what if?
This calculation assumes an average space requirement of 200 square feet per employee.
What if this requirement is reduced without having to sacrifice functionality, comfort and productivity?
We are hereby launching our workspace revolutionary model hDesk.
hDesk is an innovative design that combines the best of two worlds: a cubicle for individual work and a table for teamwork, all in one space. In turn, by combining several units a larger table is achieved, and thus taking advantage of the potential to gather large teams without them leaving their individual workstations.
How can it be done?
Through an innovative piece of furniture and hardware that allow the individual desk to sit under the table when the unit is in table or «meeting» function, and the table to tilt and face the user once the desk or «cubicle» function has been activated.
Need more space to grow or work more comfortably? Think again… may be achievable by multiplying the productivity of your current space, investing a fraction of the annual cost of renting it.
