to colleague ratio of greater than 1:1.4, with space utilisation increased from c.50% to c.88%. Further, they have decreased energy wastage on the floors they occupy by nearly half, making them the most energy efficient floors in the building, despite being having the highest population density.

Increasing users’ productivity

Smart Buildings also empower employees to explore new ways of working, ultimately helping them become more productive; because they work for those who manage them, they work for those who use them. Today’s workers are becoming more

mobile in the way they conduct business, with hot desking and working remotely the norm rather than working at the same desk

in the same office every day. Further changing the requirements of workspaces, siloed departments no longer complete projects. Instead, the people with the required skills from various departments and disciplines are pulled to create the ultimate team with the expertise needed to complete a project successfully. Logistically, this requires the team to work

across different sites and offices for the length of the project, and then to return to working in their ‘home department’ once completed. The ability to quickly find team members and the way around unfamiliar company buildings is essential for maintaining the productivity of the project. What’s required is an environment that supports its users in being mobile while also adapting to provide

them with the information required to be productive. Smart technology infrastructure enables this data to be presented in a clear, concise format that users can easily understand so their productivity is enhanced not stunted. Smart Buildings help to solve the problem

of how to increase productivity across the UK. Ultimately, we will see spaces start to work harder for their money, supporting facilities managers with their task of making workspaces more efficient in both in terms of cost, environment and productivity. The insight provided by smart technology infrastructure will provide a greater understanding of how facilities are used, ensuring they can be modified to suit the needs of modern employees.
