Building Activation

Future-proofing solutions for landlords

Assisting landlords to enhance commercial space to attract high-value tenancies

What is building activation?

Tenant requirements have evolved rapidly in recent years, and so have their expectations. Increasingly, landlords must create value within office developments, beyond provision of physical accommodation. They must curate desirable services within work spaces to deliver holistic tenant experiences and sought after shared office community ecosystems. And achieving this necessitates partnerships between landlords and operators.

What it encompasses

In an office building, activation can include installation of mixed-use flexible workspace, meeting rooms, event areas and business lounges. It can also incorporate lifestyle features such as cafes, executive dining facilities, concierge services, and premium end-of-trip facilities.

How the quest for talent is driving demand

Put simply, building activation is about offering a holistic, intangible experience for talent: The cornerstone of all corporate occupiers.

Key to driving companies’ thirst for experiential workplace is the ultimate pursuit of attracting and retaining a talented work force. But not only does dynamic, livable space allow businesses to attract the best and brightest. It motivates and empowers such employees to achieve their best, while enjoying doing so. 

There are powerful connections between engagement and profitability. In fact, according to Gallup, engaged staff are associated with an incredible 21% higher profitability. It’s little wonder that the trend continues to grow as more companies seek to capitalise on their people’s potential.
