Montagu Evans presents… Offices
The spaces and places (or offices) in which we work to enrich our communities and our economy are a vital component of successful placemaking. As our ways of working change, so must the nature and typology of the physical spaces where we carry work out.
A successful working environment caters for the diversity of all who work there. Competition for talent continues, and differentiating through employee experience, values and partnering with technology is proving successful for many businesses. Wellbeing is high on the agenda for businesses and their employees, and successful locations need to be complemented with a mix of retail, leisure, and food & beverage.
Traditional office space has changed, and co-working is not just for millennials or start-ups. Understanding the market and the trends in office and workspace provision is a necessity for those in real estate. As the market changes, so must we, and that involves a particular understanding of micro-requirements at the geographical or sector level. At the macro-level, its understanding workspace patterns, trends, planning policy and how workspace can fit into successful mixed-use schemes and urban centres.
It’s about work, community and connectivity. Quality office provision is as important as quality housing. Understanding occupier and developer requirements whilst taking a longer-term view of the product being delivered will ensure the success of schemes both at the development stage and into the long-term attractiveness to the occupier market.
This fast-changing sector requires expert advice from initial planning and development through to investment or leasing. Whatever the requirement, whether occupier, investor or developer, our expert collaborative approach provides agile market intelligence for a joined-up solution to make workspaces work.
