Tomorrow’s office is being reshaped by several trends apparent for over a decade and accelerated by the recent pandemic: the rise of remote work, increased flexibility, coworking options and a focus on wellbeing. The result: organisations of all sizes are rethinking the role of the office within their way of working and culture, against a backdrop of commercial real estate constraints due to long-term contracts and existing structures.
Agile Office is Plan Group’s response to the transformation of office spaces: a flexible solution to understand today’s usage and tomorrow’s requirements, build alternatives and monitor the success over time in order to continuously improve services to Developers, Operator/Owners and Tenants.
How It Works
Agile Office rests on a strong foundation: a digital twin equipped with smart technology in order to understand building usage and people flows. Based on these insights, recommendations for optimising space and services are co-created with clients, and solutions – including office space booking & customisation via an app, remote building operation and energy savings plans. Simply put, it integrates business processes with building spaces, thru digitals workflows for better outcomes.
Clients report considerable benefits from deploying the Agile Office solution:
- In-depth understanding of usage patterns and evolving user behaviours, which translate into pathways for improving user satisfaction whilst minimising costs.
- Customisation of office spaces in order to attract employees and visitors and support long-term use of available real estate.
- Options to optimise building operations and maintenance, therefore saving time and costs over the medium term.
- 3 Prood of concepts, one under construction: World Renowned Healthcare Facility in Canada ($13M) – Implementation of numerous Agile Office components including space utilization, people tracking, room level occupancy, desk booking and availability, asset tracking, end-user mobile application with operator portal.
