Natural light

Why is natural light important in an office?

How many times has this happened to you?

Walking into your office, you flip on the light switch and sit down at your desk. Open your laptop and take a sip from your coffee cup.  It’s time to work but yet you feel flat and sluggish.  Your eyes feel a little strained and you may even have a headache.  You look up and note that the windows in the room are small and the natural light coming through is minimal.

Could it be that the lack of natural light is affecting you and making you feel flat and sluggish?

The answer is YES!

According to a study conducted by Alan Hedge in 2018, a professor in the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell University in the USA, workers in a daylit office reported an 84% drop in symptoms such as strained eyes, headaches and blurred vision….. all of which detract from productivity!

“The study found that optimizing the amount of natural light in an office significantly improves health and wellness among workers, leading to gains in productivity,” said Hedge. “As companies increasingly look to empower their employees to work better and be healthier, it is clear that placing them in office spaces with optimal natural light should be one of their first considerations.”

Here at GO Road Co we often get comments from new and prospective tenants about our lighting and décor.

Our décor is super fresh and contemporary with natural tones but the drawcard?  All fixed offices have large windows which stream oodles of natural light into the rooms!

All offices on the Glen Osmond Road side of the building are north east facing, which means the morning light is absolutely sensational.   For afternoon sun, the car park facing offices bathe in glorious sunlight – the choices is yours as to which you may prefer.

Either way, each office has windows running the length of them which let in plenty of natural light and allow you to keep your productivity at its maximum!
