Welcome to the Autumn edition of Building Consultancy Today.
In this edition we explore new trends and technologies that are changing and influencing the way we build and use our buildings now and in the future. Technological advances really are at the heart of change allowing a more fluid approach to occupying buildings with the increasing use of portable communication devices and the move away from static desks to a variety of work settings as examples. We touch on these and other areas including wellbeing which is rapidly gaining ground from a staff retention and productivity perspective.
As always we welcome your feedback and comments via our short survey.
The real challenge with today’s buildings is keeping pace with technology change to avoid redundancy.
Neil Grey, Senior DirectorinProject Management – Major and Capital Projects explores the cultural shifts in the workplace which are taking it towards an experience-rich environment with less fixed infrastructure and more fluid work settings.
