For decades, business leaders have grappled with the question of how best to optimise two of their greatest costs (and opportunities): People and Workspace. When designed well, the workspace is a productive hive of creativity and collaboration, bringing your people together to drive your company forward through incredible synergy and teamwork.
But in a post-pandemic world, when we are facing the greatest change to the way we work since the widespread introduction of the computer, traditional office design is fast becoming obsolete. Today’s workforces demand a much higher degree of flexibility and customisability. No longer are they working in one place on one task all day, every day. They are working on a variety of complex tasks with a variety of people, and need a variety of spaces to support them.
So, while the way we work and the role of the workplace has shifted dramatically in recent months, buildings - unsurprisingly - haven’t. In an age of hybrid working, the office needs to become a destination that your people will remember for the experiences they have within that space. The future workspace needs to be a synergistic hub that employees find much more enjoyable (and effective) to work in than their own home.
What is Fluidspace?
With many organisations unsure of how their real estate portfolios will look in 12-24 months' time, FluidSpace™ is an ideal way to ensure your company has the flexibility and confidence to create exceptional workspaces for your people. FluidSpace™ does exactly what the title suggests – it creates agile, flexible workspaces that can be quickly and cost-effectively reconfigured to meet the changing demands of teams and organisations.
By utilising furniture to create rooms and zones rather than traditional methods of fit-out such as partitions, it allows for maximum flexibility – new zones and rooms can be established without the need for disruptive and expensive construction works.
With furniture offering mobile and modular systems, your workspace could be entirely rearranged in as little as a weekend. This offers you the agility to adapt to your changing requirements as and when they happen, giving your people the environment they need to drive your business forward.
By effectively implementing carefully designed and curated collections of furniture, we can eliminate the need for expensive M&E packages that drive up the cost of workspace adaptions. Effective use of storage and acoustic pods creates differentiated spaces, meaning many M&E costs are no longer necessary, saving both time and money.
The Benefits of FluidSpace™
By imaginatively creating multiple spaces that seamlessly complement the way your people work, they become happier and more productive. A truly effective workspace has to cater to all the needs of all of its users, through different spaces in which to focus and concentrate, as well as contrasting spaces that promote connection and collection.
The flexibility of FluidSpace™ allows it to adapt and grow with your needs, therefore helping to future-proof this significant investment. With economies and industries changing so rapidly, companies need adaptable workspaces that can be repurposed easily and effectively. FluidSpace™ is also much more sustainable than traditional Office Fit-out: when your needs change, you can reconfigure and reuse your furniture, rather than throw it away.
The Future of Work
Exceptional workspace plays an integral role in both attracting and creating exceptional employees, which in turn create exceptional results - and companies. The workspace is not just a building, but a destination that truly empowers your people, without boundaries or constrictions. Through FluidSpace™, you can create your own workspace that meets the current needs of your business and can adapt seamlessly to an uncertain future.
