Facilities management teams have never been so important, being key to ensuring colleagues safely re-enter the workplace post-Covid 19, space is maximised for efficiency with every sqft counting, and offices are developed and enhanced to embed true flexible & agile working.
The way we manage our facilities has undergone drastic changes in light of Covid-19. Businesses have had to identify new ways of approaching their interior elements, in a way that is beneficial for their colleagues safety & wellbeing, as well as their workplace strategy.
The nature of how organisations use space has been changing for some time. We’ve already had the large scale move away from cellular working in favour of open plan offices. We’ve also had the introduction of activity-based working and the use of different zones to support mobility in the workplace. Now, COVID-19 is pushing this evolution further and even the least agile-ready organisations have started to make changes.
This demands a holistic solution that can only be provided by using intelligent office interior design and office fit-out to resolve the interactions between architecture, culture, technology, teams and individuals. Office space planning will integrate flexibility into every level of the building to meet the needs of firms who have the task of dealing with a level of complexity that was completely unheard of only a few years ago.

There’s a certain uncertainty around what’s to come for facilities management due to the current status quo. But we as organisations must try to befit what’s best for our staff, and be mindul of the ever-changing legislation surrounding the workplace. Whether that decision making is motivated by cost savings or a desire to do things differently, the process starts with taking a close-up look at workplace occupancies and behaviours as well as overheads and property commitments. The real opportunity now lies in using COVID-19 as a catalyst for proactive change that will help firms stand-out, thrive, flex and adapt to whatever change comes next.
We find ourselves in strange times – many businesses were hurried into a lockdown without having the luxury of time to think strategically. The essential issue was finding a way to maintain a level of work activity in the unprecedented circumstances but with no time to think about anything other than the immediate practicalities. No-one considered that this could potentially change the way we view the world of work in the longer term.

Claremont’s interpretation of our brief to create a bright and visual agile workspace was excellent. We were impressed by their attention to detail, but also their ability to bring big ideas to the table. The new work environment delivers the agility, flexibility and individuality we were looking for.
Real Estate Manager, Willis Towers Watson
Claremont understood the optimal combination of people, space, technology and furniture needed to deliver a workspace that best supports our people in the work they do and were able to deliver it to a high standard within the required timescale. The fact that they also provided significant savings on our original budget was an added bonus.
