The “Dark Art” of Teams Meeting Room Design…

Soo… you’ve survived the spicy cough, the world is slowly returning to normal, and people are slowly but surely, coming back into the office.  For most companies, this is the dream of every manager.  Back in reality though, the world has moved on from the “must be front and centre” mentality, and the hybrid workplace has become the new normal.

Research shows us that junior employees spend a minimum of 4 hours per week in meetings, which equates to almost 11% of their week.  Mid-level employees that rises to 35% , and a whopping 50% or more for executive level employees.  With that amount of time being spent in meetings, you really want them to be effective right?

What does this have to do with Teams Meeting Room design, and why should you care?  

With the rise in usage of Teams Meetings, and the cost of the Teams-based Video Conferencing equipment dropping considerably, it’s really tempting for customers to replace their old Video Conferencing equipment with shiny new units.

While it’s true that the newer units are much simpler to use and install, there are still some things you need to consider when upgrading the equipment in the room.  

  • What is the role/function of the room
  • What size/shape is the room
  • What furniture will it require
  • Placement of furniture
  • Will they be sharing presentations etc

These things might seem like very basic questions, but the answers have a large impact on how a room should be designed and what Video Conferencing equipment will be required.

For example:
1. Where to place the camera to ensure that everyone Is in view

2. Where to place microphones to capture every speaker

3. How many microphones will be required

4. What speakers would be required

This is where we come in…. we can work with you, to ensure that you’re purchasing the best possible equipment to meet your meeting room needs, and through our installation partners, that it’s all professionally installed.
