How to build an office of the future

A multitude of industries are struggling to keep pace with the march of technology – and construction is no exception. Designers and architects crafting the workplaces of tomorrow are finding it increasingly tricky to plan for unknown and potentially disruptive tech advances. So how do you future-proof a modern office, especially if the build spans a number of years by which time some of the technology may be outdated? “This is a critical question,” says...Make Architects...“Buildings on the drawing board now will have employees working in them that aren’t even born yet, so developers need to think smarter. In 2017 the infrastructure of a building is more important than the structure itself. We need to provide the means to easily upgrade and adapt the building to make it flexible for the future.”
