Commissioning is an essential step in the construction process. If the commissioning agent discovers flaws in the design or construction before the owner accepts the building, the design and construction trades bear the burden of correcting the flaws. However, if the discovery happens afterward, the owner inherits the costs and liabilities.

The CFO asks you to find space for a new and urgent project. You can’t find any space that isn’t already accounted for, yet when you look out over the floor, all you see are empty cubicles. Why is that?Today’s mobile workforce challenges traditional workspace planning and creates opportunities to grow your business without significant spending on new space. With features like Workspace Transactions, ARCHIBUS accounts for all complex, time-based workspace changes and gives space planners and managers the tools they need to support space-related directives with confidence.
Back on the Space Planning Console, the space manager can do all of this. By selecting a future date, you can see how the space profile looks after requested changes. Here, by highlighting the rooms by department and their borders by occupancy, you can see opportunities for improved efficiency: the departments look fairly well co-located, but there are vacant and available rooms right next to those that are over-capacity. If you mouse-over any room, you can see more room details, including who occupies them and how they may be shared. Finally, right-mouse clicking gives you options to make changes, either directly to rooms or to the requests that affect them, making it easy to take immediate action as needed.
ARCHIBUS Space Planning & Management allows you to quickly identify any anomalies or negative trends in major space metrics. For example, in this report you can see that one site has a declining occupancy rate over the past couple of years. That same site has comparatively a large number of seats, so the occupancy issue is on a bigger scale. And, to exacerbate the issue, the average area per seat is quite large compared to other sites, indicating overall a lot of unused space. This clearly shows an issue of under-performing space.
The space planner may then want to drill into that site to see specific details or trends, such as the trend of department areas that make up that site. Here you can see right away that one department’s area has been declining, contributing to vacant space and the declining occupancy rate. From here you are armed to make recommendations: release the un-utilized space from that department, or re-purpose it for other use.
