uildings of the future are about unlocking human potential, according to Peter Greaves, Buildings of the Future Leader at global engineering and infrastructure advisory company Aurecon. And I tend to agree that sometimes, it can be easy to get so caught up in building technology, that we forget who a building is ultimately designed for. Aurecon believes that making humans the centre of everything we design will be the only way for building owners, developers and users to get ahead in years to come.

The company interviewed a range of professionals across the built environment, asking them to imagine what buildings of the future might look like and how


they might be created. The research uncovered that a key concern was not forgetting the impact that buildings have on the humans who use them. “Building design is not (only) about bits and bytes, but flesh and bones,” Aurecon’s Peter Greaves said. “We need to take a step back and remember that humans are at the centre of everything we design. Buildings of the future are about designs that unlock human potential. High tech is only high value if that same technology enhances human experience.”

thought their offices had been designed ‘with people in mind’. And research by the British Design Council found that the salaries of occupants account for 85% of a company’s annual budget, while just 6.5% goes on construction and 8.5% on furnishing, maintaining and operating the facility. Greaves suggests that this clearly demonstrates that humans are the biggest expense, and that we need to shift our focus from


traditional business drivers to the results of post-occupancy research that can reveal what building functions are actually used, how they are used and if it is increasing productivity. But sometimes, this gets lost in translation.
