A Quiet Work Environment

“As companies extol the values of collaboration and save on real estate by inching back toward the bullpen offices of the 1950s, workers given a choice would still really rather have an office. One study from The Center for the Built Environment at UC Berkeley asked workers about satisfaction with speech privacy and noise. The results? “In private offices, people were the happiest,” says CBE researcher David Lehrer. “In shared offices, people were also pretty happy. The satisfaction really dropped in any of the other conditions after that.” One of the top issues with open layouts is noise transmission. Steve Orfield, the president of Orfield Laboratories, studied acoustics and other elements of office design for the past 40 years, commented that for the most part sound masking won’t make a difference most of the time.
