Marie-Louise Dunk, director of award-winning architectural design and space planning consultancy JAMstudio, says companies that underestimate the value of professional office design could be losing out in more ways than one.
The business has over the years delivered projects for organisations ranging from small professional services firms to international energy companies.
believes that smaller businesses in particular may see office design support as an indulgence and unnecessary outlay - without appreciating the very real efficiencies it can yield.
"A vibrant, imaginative office design can in the first instance prove to be a very direct cost-saving exercise," she
"Equally important are the less tangible advantages that are derived from a quality office design project," adds Marie-Louise
The business was set up in 2003 by John Wingate and Marie-Louise Dunk
, who worked on a series of high-profile London projects before moving to the North-east of Scotland.
