Tenants' Rules of Thumb by Use
The general rule of thumb is to allow
anywhere between 125 and 225 usable square feet
of office space per person. This of course,
depends upon the type and style of the business and the
workspace layout. These figures can vary based
upon special needs such as extra-large conference rooms or storage requirements,
but will include normal amenities within a general use office.
