This appendix provides detailed requirements for the different kinds of spaces that can be created in an ABW Open workstation office. The requirements cover everything from sizes and quantities, to adjacencies and acoustics. The definitions for the various requirements can be found on page . The requirements are rather detailed in recognition of the fact that design details can have a critical impact on peoples workplace experience. All too often high-flying office projects fail to deliver on common-sense matters such as good acoustics, the avoidance of glare on computer screens and easy-to-reach power sockets. Having a clear set of requirements, combined with systematic design verification, will help to avoid such problems. It is important to note that the requirements presented here are generic guidelines only they should not be copy-pasted into your situation. To create a successful work environment, the requirements need to be tailored to the specific needs of an organization. A software organization will for example have different needs from a sales organization, requiring a different mix of spaces and different kinds of technologies. Local culture and regulations must also be taken into consideration. In Norway, for example, the minimum workplace size is seven square metres, while this book mentions a size of five square metres. It is thus essential to check whether the requirements are in line with a countrys health and safety regulations and building codes. Furthermore, it is important to consider the clients ambition level and budget. The indoor climate requirements presented in this book represent a standard quality level in terms of comfort. Depending on the type of project, it is possible to set both higher and lower standards.
