  • Has working remotely been productive?

  • Has your requirement for space changed? Will you be using your space differently? Less space, more or no change?

  • What does success look like for getting back to work for your company?

With so many unanswered questions, DESIGN+BUILD and Newmark Knight Frank have teamed up to help you get answers. We lead the way with workspace reopening plans tailored specifically to your employees, organization, and workspace.

Using data and feedback from your team, our workspace consultants overlay your team’s short-term and long-term needs with your actual workspace. Our goal is to show you solutions to meet your immediate needs and holistic solutions based on revelations you may have discovered in 2020, including lease options, spatial requirements, and remote work options.

The Process

#1 Workforce Survey

We’ve worked closely with Portland companies to developed a workforce survey platform specifically designed for companies assessing their new working styles and needs of employees. The survey takes less than 5 minutes and generates the data necessary to analyze your current situation, take the first steps toward reopening, and insight into long-term planning.

#2 Workspace Assessment

Our expertise in design, construction, and real estate means we know workspaces better than anyone else. First, we review your floorplans and furniture plans, identifying high-risk areas, intersections, and meeting spaces. Then, we calculate the new capacity of your workspace, including allowances for remote workers.

#3 Recommendations

Finally, we use the collected data to recommend a custom plan that works for your unique team and workspace. We use our collective expertise to recommend occupancy phases, behavioral changes, environmental changes, and commercial lease modifications.

Thoughtful office design begins by understanding where you’re at right now: what your office space is doing effectively, along with how it’s underserving your organization’s needs and goals. Chances are, your organization falls somewhere in between these organizational cultures.

At DESIGN+BUILD, we help you assess your organizational priorities and goals so that we can explore and deploy open office space strategies optimized for your needs. Contact us today to schedule your free workspace audit, and we’ll start exploring the possibilities for your future.
