I suggest you switch to the use of full-height (floor to ceiling and fully enclosed) cubicle environments in order to facilitate a quieter work environment and increased productivity. Also, discontinue the use of "quads", where 4+ people share a cubicle environment, when such an environment is not required. Software developers and other office workers who perform a large amount of effort mentally, often require higher levels of concentration to perform at their best. Noisy/chatty neighbors slow work efforts. Full-height cubicles with doors will allow us quieter environments, leading to better performance, translating into lower project costs.
