Corporate Real Estate Occupancy Planning

Real estate decision makers when planning for a new workspace want to learn from the inefficiencies that characterize their current space, but don’t have a metrics framework for quantifying these variables (such as adjacencies, densities and enclosures). Through occupancy planning, you can cut through these obstacles and identify spatial pain points in your current space to inform future site selection and space planning decisions.

Having a multi-tiered understanding of an organizations use of space can drive more strategic real estate and employee experience strategies. Measuring occupancy is one method that can be used to decipher an organization's space use reality. Our Workplace Strategy team leverages client's existing systems from their Facilities Management, Human Resources and Information Technology departments, such as badge swipes, to extract meaningful occupancy information.

Layered on top of the intelligence that exists in clients' systems, our team of researchers can also conduct rigorous observational studies in order to collect data related to where employees are and what activity they are doing throughout the day. The combination of these occupancy planning tools elucidate how and when people are using the spaces.
