How many hours in the day do you spend sitting? If you work in an office, it’s likely you’re spending too long being sedentary and it could be affecting your motivation, productivity and even your health.
Recent research says that the dangers of sitting for too long include a higher risk of Type 2 diabetes and obesity, and states that musculoskeletal disorders worsened by sitting for long amounts of time, cause 7.6m working days to be lost per year.
So how can we combat being sedentary at work? Spaceway has recently designed a huge office fit out for Specsavers in Hampshire, which includes agile workspaces – like raised desks for standing – and collaborative spaces to encourage workers to move around and meet in different areas of the office environment.
Using a raised desk is a fantastic way to help your body feel energised during the day, as well as helping to work off some calories. Standing up to work for just half an hour will burn nearly 80 calories.
Collaborative meeting spaces can also help to introduce standing meetings. By standing for a daily briefing or catch-up, your staff are more likely to feel motivated and the meetings are kept short and to-the-point, helping to boost productivity.
Forward-thinking ideas from other companies have seen staff encouraged to stand to take a phone call, as well as banning internal email for a day to galvanise workers into walking to other people’s desks to deliver messages.
Dominic O’Brien, director at Spaceway, said:
“We’re really pleased to offer agile workspaces and bespoke office furniture in our fit out solutions. It’s always exciting to see an organisation make the steps to upgrade its workspace for the benefit of its staff’s wellbeing, and we believe a healthy office is a happy one.”

We are delighted with the finished product. The space has been turned into an exceptional working environment, which will serve us well for years to come
We were delighted with the service from Spaceway.
The project was challenging to say the least with the removal of 280 workstations and fitting of 400 new ones, along with collaboration areas and 400 bespoke lockers over two weekends, but Spaceway managed to complete this along with office refurbishment works on time and to an excellent standard.
Our project was finished on time and to budget in what was a very short timescale, which is a credit to the team at Spaceway!
Spaceway worked with us to create the perfect environment for our staff. The completed project was fantastic and utilised the space to provide practical, modern and attractive working surroundings.
It’s no good having just an empty industrial building you need a concept for space, a design, an infrastructure and someone to build it. Designing something like this from scratch with someone who’s willing to invest in your ideas, Spaceway is your perfect partner.
Thank you to Spaceway for the improvements that have been made to move Bodywise forward. You've done a very good job and we look forward to working with you again.
The project was designed to meet our specific requirements which included fitting in 20 more additional workstations using the existing space. The design works well and has met our expectations fully, we will continue to use Spaceway, they do a good job.
“I was so happy I did not get bothered throughout the extensive works and that a strict timetable was completed flawlessly. Fantastic experience all round.”
Another project well done by Spaceway. As before, we're very pleased with everything from concept through to completion.
