A study of the average occupancy of office space in a multinational company has shown that up to 40 per cent of desks in open plan areas and up to 20 per cent of desks in enclosed offices are not in use at all during core office hours. In many offices, space spacings of up to 30 per cent can be made in work station areas by paying more careful attention to what people are doing and where they are, and making design changes to accommodate the patterns of use.
