Office Landscaping

Much interest is being expressed around the Laboratory in the open office or office landscaping concept, which is being used in designing portions of the interior of the Central Laboratory. At the moment, according to Assistant Director Donald R. Getz, the Business Administration, Personnel Services, and Technical Services sections will work in space designed in this way. How other areas of the building will be arranged is still under discussion.

Of using the open office concept at NAL, George Doddy, DUSAF Coordinator, remarked, "It's an environment which will really expand the individual's appreciation of the space in which he works. He'll have privacy within his work area, and yet a feeling of spaciousness as he moves away from it. The views throughout the building are fantastic. The variety of arrangements will eliminate any feeling of regimentation."

Employees interested in seeing just how an open office design works might take the tour of the open office area.
