The Latest “Before and After” Photos

When you share a space with other’s who is responsible for organizing that space?

This is a recent job we completed of two office storage areas. It usually is the responsibility of the office manager to order and inventory supplies and keep the space organized. But the office had moved to a new location and she could not find the extra time to organize this space on top of her regular duties.

These photos are of the equipment room, where they housed a copy machine, fax machine, binding equipment, mail area, etc. It is used often by all the employees and needed to contain a wide variety of office supplies.

We took full advantage of all the storage available in this space, to make it easy for everyone to find what they were looking for and also for the office manager to easily be able to do an inventory of supplies. Of course, labeling always helps to communicate to everyone where to find things and also where to put things away.

The second space we organized was used for more long-term storage. This is also where the marketing department stored all the materials they use for the trade shows that they participate in.

As you can see, the task was large. Unpacking, sorting and organizing this space made it much more efficient and effective for all the members of this organization.

The work was a success, in that we were able to sort, purge, locate storage space, contain and label everything to make much more efficient storage areas.

How long do you think this project took? I’d like to hear your thoughts.

    Hello Janet:

    That is a tricky question! You say “We” so I assume you had a team, but you do not let on as to how many people were involved. Having seen how a team that you put together can work and considering that offices require a much more expedite job, I would guess about 2 days.

    I had one assistant. This job took us a total of 14 hours (7 hours each), so we finished in one business day. Like anything else, you can increase productivity with practice. We do work very systematically to decrease the amount of time spent on a job.
