Breakout zone

W and indeed TF is a breakout zone??

We are moving office shortly and this is marked on the floor plan. I know I want to escape work and would happily tunnel out of the office at times but I feel this isn't what I think it is

Guess it's some Americanism or Office Speak. No doubt it'll end up being used for hot desking!!

All at the expense of a workshop area which what we actually need

Thank you for listening to me letting off steam

Sorry to put a dampener on your gaming plans but it's just some chairs and maybe a table away from your normal work environment where you can have quick discussions and whatnot.

So just a disappointing waste of space then as we won't be allowed to just sit around chit chatting and drinking coffee. Boooooo

Not getting a shower either so can't go fishing overnight and head straight in to work in the morning

What you need are war rooms.


No shower facilities is just rude.

Breakout areas are required in modern open plan offices as it is impossible to hold any sort of private or semi private discussion at your desk. It may well be important that a discussion between you and your line manager about a client or supplier is not overheard by all and sundry passing up and down the aisle beside your, or indeed their, desk.

Bring back the tradditional office layout and there would be no need for break out areas etc..

Yeah but if you go back to closed offices you get
all the ******y of people angling for "better" offices
and bi'tchin when then don't get them and even
starting a dirty protest by ****ing everywhere.


Open plan FTW. Letting customers wander round? What?!

We will have 3 meeting rooms to discuss stuff in.

I'm only ranting as I wanted a work shop and a shower!! But the fact that the bosses preferred some shiny fronted building near a station (coz they like using the train) we missed out on the vitally important aspect of office space we really needed ie a workshop area.

Had hoped the £154 million Euromillions jackpot would fall in to my bank account this weekend and I could then jack it all in anyway!
