Over the past few years, two trends have accelerated in the workplace.
Flexible workspaces have become ever more popular making up 7% of total workspace in the UK with 86m sq ft of floor space, up 17% from 2018.¹
Secondly, workplaces have become smarter with a rise in adoption of smart office IoT sensors and devices of 13.49%.²
During the current COVID-19 pandemic we have spoken to many landlords, tenants and investors and the consensus is that technology adoption is only going to accelerate. There is also consensus that while we will see a dip in demand for office space, flex spaces will still play an important and growing role in the office let market.
With shorter lease terms and more insights into space utilisation; flexibility is more important than ever, not just from a leasing point, but from the physical space you work in.
That’s why we have been working on bringing flexibility to the built environment.
Cubes; are smart modular walls that allow you to reconfigure your workspace over time, to meet changes in needs and demand.
Inbuilt IoT sensors anonymously monitor space utilisation and provide recommendations on how to reconfigure or optimise the space.
CubeOS is the underlying technology platform for the built environment. CubeOS aggregates data and from the inbuilt technology stack which consists of space utilisation monitoring and environmental sensors. These insights help CubeOS provide recommendations on how to optimise spaces.
Cubes solves the problem of slow, expensive fit-outs that are fixed for the lifespan of a lease.
- Build up, break down in hours – Stand-alone system
- Manufactured offsite reducing landfill waste
- Multifunctional panel fascias – windows, whiteboard, noise dampening, shelving, standard wall
- Create rooms or dividers of any shape or size
- Easily rearranged to adapt floorplan as required
- Smart office IoT devices integrated into panels
- Measures space utilisation and environmental air quality
- Provides workflows and recommendations to optimise space to improve space utilisation, wellbeing and operational efficiencies
These features ensure that you can quickly activate your workplace ready for use in a day, and easily reconfigure whenever you need to ensure your space is futureproofed and can adapt as people, demand and trends do.
To reduce cost, Cubes are available on a monthly subscription, which includes delivery, installation, insights and control of the integrated IoT via the CubeOS dashboard and all technology upgrades over the lifetime of the panels. It also means that if you require more or less panels during reconfiguration, you pay only for what you use.
Panels you no longer require go through rigourous testing to ensure they are up to quality standards and are then recirculated and can be used in other spaces. This reduces manufacturing lead times, waste production and lifetime of the Cubes. Being modular, damaged parts can be replaced without having to replace the whole unit and each can be customised and changed with the switch of a fascia.
Cubes is ready to be installed into new CAT A or CAT B spaces or retrofitted into an existing workspace. Get in touch if you’d like to learn more or view a demo of Cubes in action.
