Integration of the latest Smart Spaces technologies on the market enables deeper insight into correlations between various granular metrics that are of key importance to business operations and planning.
Enhanced understanding of variables such as space utilisation rates, customer throughput and building traffic enable you to identify areas for space flexibility, change of use or rationalisation.
Additionally, the deployment of advanced sensor and control systems, integrated with existing building equipment enables floorspaces to be fully flexible, and optimised for the changing requirements of businesses as they emerge.
With ongoing shifts in how buildings are occupied and optimised, flexibility and Smart functionality is becoming a prime consideration for owners, managers and tenants alike.
As property markets, economic dynamics and operational requirements continue to shift at an increasing rate, the need for built estates to have the capacity to respond and evolve is becoming ever more critical.
Across all sectors, organisations are seeking increased flexibility of their property assets, to enable them to rapidly adjust their space utilisation patterns and maintain a firm grip on operational costs whilst seeking out new business models and opportunities for growth.
Key to improving the flexibility of commercial floorspace is the ability to draw-on operational and occupational data to provide insight on usage; but also the means by which we facilitate short, medium or long-term alteration of space functionality.
At ETS, our experts assist you through the identification, specification and integration of the latest Smart Spaces technologies to track the metrics that matter most to your business (e.g. footfall in retail stores, or office utilisation in offices) to deliver insight. We simultaneously advise on the capabilities of existing building services systems to meet developing needs and detailed plans for any improvements that may be required from an engineering perspective to enable the desired levels of flexibility.
