Head of Offices Sector PartnerView profile
The spaces and places in which we work enrich our communities, our economy and 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, 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 understanding particular micro-requirements at geographical or sector level. At 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 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.
