Tips from Metropolitan House

In today’s fast-paced business world, creating a productive workspace is essential for the success of any company. As the demands of work continue to evolve, so does how we approach our office environments. Here at Metropolitan House, we understand the importance of a productive workspace. In this blog, we will explore some practical tips to help you optimise your office space for maximum productivity.

1. Ergonomic Furniture and Layout

One of the first steps to creating a productive workspace is to invest in ergonomic furniture and a well-thought-out office layout. According to a study conducted by the British Council for Offices (BCO), ergonomic office design can lead to a 20% increase in employee productivity. Metropolitan House offers layout flexibility to ensure that tenants can customise their workspace to their specific needs.

2. Abundant Natural Light

Natural light has a profound impact on productivity. A Green Building Council study found that access to natural light and outdoor views can enhance employee well-being and productivity. At Metropolitan House, large windows allow ample natural light to flood into the offices, creating a more pleasant and inspiring working environment.

3. Noise Management

Noise can be a significant distraction in the workplace. Research from the University of Exeter suggests that noise pollution can reduce productivity by up to 66%. Metropolitan House is situated just 500 meters away from A1, Junction 72, and less than 5 miles from the heart of Newcastle City Centre. Additionally, we have a spacious parking lot with plenty of free parking available, even during peak hours. This advantageous location allows us to avoid the hassles and noise of the city centre traffic and costly parking charges.

4. Internet Speed

A reliable and up-to-date tech infrastructure is crucial for productivity in the modern workplace. Metropolitan House ensures tenants have high-speed internet access, ensuring uninterrupted workflow.

5. Collaboration Spaces

Collaboration is a crucial driver of innovation and productivity. According to a survey by Regus, 73% of UK professionals believe that flexible and collaborative workspaces increase their productivity. Metropolitan House provides a meeting room for teams to collaborate and exchange ideas seamlessly.

6. Organised and Clutter-Free Environment

A cluttered workspace can hinder concentration and creativity. According to a study by the National Association of Professional Organisers (NAPO), a cluttered workspace can reduce productivity by 40%. Metropolitan House encourages tenants to keep their workspace organised and provides ample storage solutions to reduce clutter.

7. Flexible Office Solutions

Flexibility is a cornerstone of productivity. Metropolitan House’s flexible lease terms allow businesses to adapt their office space as their needs change. This flexibility ensures businesses can expand or downsize without the financial concerns of relocating.

8. Regular Cleaning and Maintenance

A clean and well-maintained workspace is essential for productivity and employee health. Metropolitan House prioritises regular cleaning and maintenance to provide a pristine working environment.

9. Employee Input and Feedback

Lastly, involving employees in the workspace design and seeking their feedback is vital. According to a report by HR Magazine, involving employees in workspace design decisions can increase their sense of ownership and satisfaction, ultimately boosting productivity.


In conclusion, creating a productive workspace is not a one-size-fits-all endeavour. It requires thoughtful planning, investment in the proper infrastructure, and an understanding of the unique needs of your team.
