The Design and Workspace Analysis offers businesses the opportunity to assess how their workspace is used. Quantitative methods such as behaviour mapping and decibel measurement are combined with qualitative data to present a picture of how fully space is being utilised. And how it is meeting individual and teams working needs.

The utilisation study reveals how well a workspace is performing and identifies areas that can be improved upon, such as:

*How many hours a week are workers in the office?
*How much space is needed for different functions and teams?
*How will the future needs of the business affect the space we need?

The crucial insights transform an office move or fit-out into a valuable opportunity to make the workspace truly support organisational performance and employee wellbeing.

Office Design Case Study: SBHG

SBHGMoving offices is a significant investment for any business, and we are proud to have worked on some incredible projects over the years across a variety of sectors including; media, banking, finance and technology with a strong portfolio of projects for housing associations.

Throughout our time in the industry, we have built many strong relationships with our clients. And at the core of our business is Rapport. We believe it is a crucial component to the successful outcome of a project, from a clear brief.

In particular, Rapport was integral to two for Shepherds Bush Housing Group (SBHG) including SBHG HQ and SBHG Craft Court. We sat down with David Blackburn, to talk through his time at SBHG on the projects and to understand the learnings and effectiveness of both projects. David, as Director of Business Support, was key to the success of the project supporting internal communication between staff, management and the delivery team.

David, what learnings did you take away from working with Rapport on the Shepherds Bush housing projects?

Our Rapport team have recently completed the refurbishment of Accent Group’s offices in Camberley, Surrey.

The housing association’s offices were poorly lit and had been divided into small, impractical spaces. Our design team created increased space and improved facilities, enabling expansion and improved communication across the teams. New furniture completed the overall spacious, airy and modern look and feel.
