A priceless commodity

Alex Rose, Floored Plans Product Manager, looks at how employers can make the most of their office space

Nothing quite beats turning a project from concept to reality. But no matter how experienced an investor or a developer is, visualising an office design and then getting buy in for this can be a difficult task –regardless of whatever challenges arise in the road between design and completion.

The problem

Floored Plans uses cutting-edge technology to bridge the gap between conception and a completed development

You’re a seasoned professional with an eye for design. You’ve agonised over the semantics of your scheme and honed the concept so it’s not only impactful and attractive but commercially viable and relevant to the end user.

But the challenges you face go far beyond the project development process – instead, you need to get valued stakeholders on board before you get can begin to turn your concept into reality.

CBRE's solution: Floored Plans

CBRE’s Floored Plans uses cutting-edge technology to bridge the gap between conception and a completed development. Part of Vantage, CBRE’s suite of enabling technology, Floored Plans has been devised to simplify the often time-consuming, labour-intensive test-fit process and make the most of space.

The interactive leasing solution accurately measures the space in question and creates 2D and 3D floor plans from which developers, landlords and occupiers can devise, customise and share test-fits according to landlord and tenants’ needs. The solution incorporates headcount and desk-sharing ratios to create practical designs, and then showcases these through immersive 3D experiences with accurate panoramic views.
