How we work

When you decide to move or redesign your workspace, the first thing that usually comes to mind is a long list of questions which we help you to answer.

We remove the uncertainties of your relocation process

Open space or closed office?

What should we boost more - team cooperation or deep focus?

How to fit the teams in?

Who should be sitting where and next to whom?

How many meeting rooms?

Can we avoid both constant overbooking and empty rooms?

We remove the uncertainties of your relocation process

We put as much effort into understanding your company as we do into creating its new offices. Only then are we able to answer all the questions that come with every project.

Phone booths or play rooms?

How to tell what space type will boost each team’s productivity?

Do we want a smart space?

What technology is available and what can it actually help us with?

Will the new office still be “ours”?

How can we transfer our company culture into a different building?

Can people look forward to moving?

How and when do we start communicating the change?

What if I lose my favorite old chair?

How to identify and keep the things people liked in the old office?

We will answer those questions throughout first phases of the Origameo process. Our research-based solutions strike the right balance between everything: focused and collaborative spaces, privacy, kitchens and smart rooms, internal staircases and break out zones - everything you need to drive your business forward.

Process



There’s no simple answer to what your new office should be like. But there is data and the Origameo strategy. Much of our work takes place before we start designing your office. So you can be sure we’ll create a solution that responds to the needs of every individual, each team and your company as a whole.

ANALYTICS

“the new space always starts in the old space”

Analytics - What we do

To start with, we run complex analytics of the ‘as-is’ state. This helps us back up your knowledge of the company with hard evidence.

HBReavis1

The smallest interactions

  • Sensors to monitor the use of desks and meeting rooms.
  • Observations of activities and use of space.
  • Employee workshops to develop an understanding of habits, rituals, and culture.

The big picture

  • Surveys to uncover essentials, likes, dislikes and pain points.
  • Interviews with middle management to detail teams’ needs and workstyles.
  • Workshops with top management to create a coherent analysis of your company’s vision and goals.

What do you get?

The analytical report tells your office’s story. It begins with a data-based understanding of your company’s current set up, insights into your future needs and the logic on which a future office can be built.

WORKPLACE
STRATEGY

“defining the roadmap to your future ideal state”

Workplace strategy - What we do

Based on the analysis of your company’s current and future potential, we develop a workplace strategy. It’s this document that anchors the design and execution of your new space.

The workplace strategy covers four main areas:

  1. High-level perspective – goals for the new office space, identified ways of working, needs and wants of stakeholders and the fundamental logic behind its spatial organisation.
  2. Spatial solutions – a map of the office’s neighbourhoods, including where teams sit, their size, space types and initial design suggestions.
  3. Technological and cultural enablers – a breakdown of the new office’s technology (e.g. smart building solutions), solutions that transfer your culture through new policies and habits, and a summary of the strengths and potential threats to achieving your goals.
  4. Change management – an analysis of employees’ attitudes and worries, and a strategy, including an internal communications plan, that will get them engaged in the move.

What do you get?

The workplace strategy defines how the new space will support your company’s goals, and how these goals translate into spatial KPIs. Practically speaking, it’s a detailed road map to the new office.

EXECUTION

“the benefits of our integration within a leading developer”

Execution - What we do

Because we’re part of HB Reavis, you’ll have some the of the industry’s leading talent involved in the design process from the very beginning. Our workspace designers and fit-out managers attend and actively contribute to your workshops. They’ll also be integral to the design documents that define the eventual workspace strategy.

  1. Space Plan is the workplace strategy applied to your particular space. It gives you an overview of where everything fits – a layout for every floor, the various zones and original space types, and the overall flow.
  2. Concept Design brings the Space Plan to life by precisely visualising all the elements, colours and materials, giving you the first look and feel of the space.
  3. Execution design details exactly how the Concept Design will be manufactured in the fit-out phase – down to the position and type of the very last plug socket.

As fit-out is also an integrated part of the process, the managers will have been involved from the early stages. This means they understand exactly what materials are needed to fulfil the design and strategy. Plus, their inside-knowledge of the project helps them quickly make the right calls when it comes to any execution and cost questions.

What do you get?

Working with an integrated developer, you get access to unique space types and technologies – but also to exclusive prices. Our fit-out managers are a guarantee that you’ll get exactly what’s been promised, to the agreed timescales, costs and quality.

CHANGE
MANAGEMENT

“because relocation means a lot of uncertainty”

Change management - What we do

From finding a new route to work to losing a favourite chair, there’s a lot to worry about when it comes to relocation. We face these worries daily, so we know how to help you handle any sensitive issues.

We monitor your people’s attitudes and concerns, as well as cultural challenges to the transition. And we then create a tailored communication and change management strategy that not only brings everyone on board, but gets them excited about the move.

We can also carry out interventions that help to inspire colleagues, including:

  • Opportunities to involve employees in the design process.
  • Tours to the new space before is opens.
  • Regular relocation newsletters and meetings.
  • HBReavis1

    Based on your needs, we can either act as a consultant, or actually deliver the communications across your business.

    AFTER
    RELOCATION
    (ongoing service)

    “making sure we did a good job... and making it even better”

    After relocation - What we do

    Once you’re in, as part of our service, we deliver a post-occupancy study that measures the new office’s success against the set KPIs and your colleagues’ overall satisfaction.

    We can also provide an analysis of new behaviour patterns that emerge in the new space and create a proposal for next steps to further boost your workspace strategy and maximise your investment.

    Looking further forward, we can also manage an ongoing service which measures the efficiency of your office. These measures range from regular satisfaction surveys, to constant data evaluation using smart building solutions. These more innovate evaluations could include:

  • People count and flow across various spaces.
  • Occupancy and utilisation.
  • Indoor activity and interactions.
  • Resource booking systems.
  • Smart building dashboards.

  • These far-reaching initiatives deliver long-term benefits. But all our services play a role in delivering a workspace that meets modern needs.

    They also help to create a continuously remarkable experience that inspires employees, teams and your wider business as much as the original office design. It’s also what sets Origameo apart from the competition.
