Whether it's a group of new hires eager to learn their new jobs, seasoned employees pursuing continuing education, onsite training for students, or any other learning opportunity-- a training room is a place designed for engaging discourse and the pursuit of knowledge.

Making these places safe and sound relies on reducing occupancy while providing even and proportional space between every person. Reducing numbers while retaining amenities is key. While these spaces take a lot of inspiration from the new conference room, these instructor-led environments deal with larger waves of people with their own unique needs.

Whether you're retrofitting, renovating, or reinventing your office space, NBF has the tools you need to make a safe return to work. Contact us at 800-558-1010 for details about our complimentary space planning and design services.
