If your considering a hot desk refurbishment it maybe worth considering the following:

1. Clutter Free Space. Enforce a clear desk policy, with good office storage solutions every pen, notepad and office file can be safely stored away.

2. Portable storage. If your team will be consistently moving desks, it will be well worth investing in portable drawer storage which can be easily transported and when not in use will be safe and secure.
