DFS Construction principal Grant Stephens, was one of the experts to speak on the evolving office revolution during BOMA’s General Session. There has been a push to incorporate collaboration into the workplace for a few years now, but many people have forgotten the importance of heads-down work spaces. Grant Stephens and Cushman & Wakefield’s Rick Cleveland, discuss how important it is to remember that office design is fluid, expressing how, “companies are realizing they’ve focused too much on innovative areas and not enough on quiet places to actually execute.” To add to the discussion, Herman Miller Director, Tracy Brower, discusses the role of the company’s culture on design. Businesses often bring in a pool or foosball table in attempt to make the office more “fun,” but Tracy questions this saying, “if the foosball table is never used, should you take it out, or should you tweak your culture to encourage its use?” Food for thought.
