You know the rule that commercial real estate experts like to recall: Three criteria are essential: location, location andlocation. If this assertion can make you smile, it shows the real importance of locating a property. But this rule is destined to evolve. Changes in the world of work are beating the cards. It is not so much the location as the landscaping that matters.
New development Needs
The world of work is in the middle of a transition. The actors who propose workspaces have to face new requirements in terms of flexibility and the layout of the offices. Distance work, hunting in the lost place or the possibility of changing a work surface as needed are current trends.
Nor should we neglect another phenomenon that causes companies to take an interest in their offices: the share of "office staff" is increasing in areas where, historically, it was weak. This is the case in the industry, and in particular the manufacturing industry. Because of the automation and digital development, there are more positions in the office than in the workshops. Then we need room.
the digitization of the economy disturbs the work. Methods and processes are awry in many companies, which causes a transformation of the working formats (job sharing, part-time work, telework).
The work from the main place of the company remains essential and is still the norm. But behind this apparent conservatism, many changes are being launched backstage. EN More of the office and the "home-Office", a third office appears. Third-place or shared office spaces fit into the company's real estate mix. Their location is less important than that of the seat. But then we don't want to sacrifice on landscaping.
The Proptech to help with the development of the spaces
In an environment with such a multiple demand, office space must be both efficient and flexible.
• It is necessary to have flexible spatial structures that allow employees to easily adapt the professional infrastructure to their work processes.
• The workspace needs to be tailored to specific activities as it is too costly to reserve separate spaces for each activity. In a few minutes a meeting room can become a project plateau or a conference room. Having all three is a luxury, so we think po-ly-va-len-CE.
• The principle of fixed workstations gives way to an office-sharing model (Flex-Office) to facilitate teamwork and maximize occupancy.
The traditional workplace tends to be streamlined and its total volume reduced. Likewise, the individual space is transformed into shared rooms or areas. development is becoming increasingly important.
This is where the Proptech has a card to play. Example with Archilyse. Archilyse is a start-up of the Proptech which measures the architectural characteristics of a space and then puts the data at the disposal of project developers, architects and real estate companies. The Archilyse platform provides simulations and analysis of the view of an office and provides a way to use space. Depending on the place (location) The layout is recommended to facilitate the traffic plan, optimize the space or even make the most of the outdoor light.
Static, thermal and acoustic characteristics make it possible to think of the offices even before they leave the earth. The digital and Data allow us to think about the offices and not to leave their layout to chance, taking into account all the characteristics. Bluffing.
