Despite the movie depiction of laboratories as dark, dull, dusty basement hideaways with half-crazed scientists mixing chemicals and scrawling formulas on blackboards, many contemporary labs and industry workshops lean to the other extreme of clean, sterile and colorless. Either way, they’re drab, and it’s hard to imagine that a creative spark could survive in such settings.
Psychologists, physicians and architects agree about the benefits that daylight, pleasant views, fresh air, greenery, color and comfortable surroundings bring to the workplace. The U.S. Green Building Council, in addition to promoting energy-savings and resource sustainability, is dedicated to improving the “health” of the built environment for the next generation. Today, Americans spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors. Offices and homes of the future, as well as offices, factories, schools and retail spaces are destined to become healthier, greener and more interesting.
Luckily, efficiency and healthy environments are not mutually exclusive.
Healthcare labs, academic and clinical facilities, commercial kitchens and industrial production floors need not be devoid of light and color, views and fresh air. Functional components that are attractive and ergonomically designed not only make a workspace more comfortable, but contribute to increased productivity and employee satisfaction, whether your staff numbers 10 or 100.
With a line of custom industrial workbenches, casework and laboratory furniture designed to meet the specific needs of a wide range of clients, OnePointe Solutions has been proving that point for more than a decade.
