Demand-Based Building Operations

Adopting a Demand-Based Workplace Model can slash capital outlays, boost productivity and reduce your carbon footprint - a real triple play.

by John H. Vivadelli, President
AgilQuest Corporation

The process called “telework” (sometimes referred to as telecommuting, workforce mobility or other terms) employs technology to separate the activity called “work” from the physical location called “work.” With telework, work is something you do, not a place you go. Telework uses technology to move work to people, reducing the need to move people to work.

Visioning Your Workplace

A key management challenge in transforming traditional office space into a flexible work environment is minimizing risk.

Today’s employees demand a flexible work environment that keeps pace with their constantly changing needs. Technology has untethered them from their fixed desks and freed them to work from anywhere. Many organizations have found that redesigning their workplace systems can lead to enhanced employee satisfaction, improved collaboration and higher productivity, and reduced capital outlays for office space.

Measure Actual Use of Space for Corporate Real Estate

Corporate Real Estate (CRE) executives need an effective way to measure and understand the actual use of their office real estate portfolio.

Executives need to know where, when, and how users actually interact with the work environment so they can provide their fellow employees with a highly effective workplace tuned to the changing needs of the organization.

Real time, or near real time, “Actual Use of Space” data enables corporate real estate managers to deliver a highly productive, optimally-sized work environment that gives workers the space they need whenever, and wherever they need to work.

Companies in London are paying for empty desks that occupy some of the most expensive commercial real estate in the world.

 With the increasing impact of wireless technology and flexible working, more and more executives are working out of the office for longer periods as City-based companies embrace flexible working strategies to get the most productivity from their workforce. This means their workspace is unused and left empty, but still needs to be managed and paid for.
