commercial development planning
There are a number of factors that influence site selection and workplace design: programmatic function, operational /maintenance costs, capacity for expansion, balance of technology- AV, productivity spaces, work-life amenities and accessibility to qualified talent. In evaluating these various components, the building infrastructure becomes a part of the conversation as stakeholders evaluate their options. In our work with a wide array of public and private clients, we help create a framework for assessing multiples sites and configurations to best support a strategic capital investment. We are accustomed to creating:
WORKPLACE GUIDELINES REVIEW & DEVELOPMENT – a derivative of stakeholder input on system performance requirements based upon program spaces; augment with recommendations to poise the system for future developments based upon industry technology advancements and trends; serves as a baseline for evaluating site and system options.
TECHNOLOGY & INFRASTRUCTURE ASSESSMENT – a review of the infrastructures’ capacity to meet operational demands including the demand for power and environmental systems to heat and cool occupied and high-technology spaces accordingly.
BASIS OF DESIGN – a technical narrative of each system type that supports building analysis, due diligence, site selection, design and construction requirements and operational objective for system capacity needs.
LEASING LETTER OF INTEREST – a communication designed to engage potential developers, landlords and/or property managers that identify project intent, base system requirements and contractual roles/ responsibilities for infrastructure investments, maintenance and ongoing service agreements for lease negotiations.
INFRASTRUCTURE DESIGN – campus and high-rise applications that account for single and/or multi-tenant environments developed for flexibility, reliability and future scalability.
