Building Consultancy Today

Future of our Buildings

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.
