Businesses have undergone one of the biggest digital transformations over the past year, and the impact of this on office spaces is still uncertain.
In order to alleviate any risk in the future, building owners and companies need to work together to be part of the post-pandemic evolution, rather than be left behind.
There are a few ways building owners can properly support tenants who are trying to optimize digitalization. This includes viewing the building as a partner to the workplace, reenvisioning the role of the building as a place to provide a healthy work experience and build out a better work campus.
With remote working becoming a normal part of the workforce, businesses will need to create a workplace that employees will actually want to come into.
That means emphasizing company culture in the office by implementing collaborative rooms and community-driven spaces. Building owners in particular should look into offering tenants amenities that help nurture this reimagined, collaborative-centric office.
For instance, A+I (Architecture Plus Information) is aiding asset manager Nuveen at their property in Manhattan by creating a new building brand titled The Gardens at 780.
The space features amenities that not only help serve tenants, but also the surrounding neighborhood, creating a true sense of community.
