State Government Leased Spaces Spacious

State Leases Database Indicate Spacious Workspaces

Leased spaces in Helena exceed industry and government standards. Are taxpayers paying too much?
The state leases database finds 10/10 leased properties where the square footage per employee exceeds national standards of 175.

The general rule of thumb is to allow 125 to 225 usable square feet per person depending upon the type and style of the business. – See more at: http://www.officefinder.com/how.html#sthash.LDORbMPO.dpuf
In my manufacturing business, we had about 180-200 SF per employee. We had broad sewing and cutting tables and inventory storage, too.
WSJ says the average office for middle managers in the private sector is 120 SF. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303902404579151573105617530
