Working next to water has a positive effect on employees' productivity, according to a new report.

Office developments close to rivers, docks and canals create a stimulating environment for staff, a survey of more than 2,000 workers in Glasgow found.
One in three employees who worked near the River Clyde in the International Financial Services District believed it made them more productive.
A psychologist said water created "a feeling of space and well-being".
Dr Cynthia McVey, a health psychologist based at Glasgow Caledonian University, said water increased "openness to creativity".
She added: "Water adds to the working environment in a very positive way.
"Just being by water is both relaxing and stimulating.
"People who can look out of their office windows across water feel less confined by their workplace.
"They are more likely to feel positive about their work and more valued."
BBC Scotland staff will move to a new five-storey digital broadcast centre at Pacific Quay, next to the River Clyde, in 2007.
