Building and Space Utilization

Optimize real estate through rightsizing and improved strategic decision making

What is space utilization?

In simple terms, space utilization is a measure of how many people use a space (eg. a room or building), compared with how many it was designed for.

The True Occupancy ecosystem uses occupancy sensing technology to anonymously collect this data 24/7, enabling managers and leaders to truly understand how their space is being used.

This better understanding allows for improved strategic decision making, identification of opportunities for cost reduction, simplified space planning and validation of employee needs.

Building Space Utilization

Benefits of space utilization

Reduce real estate costs

Research shows that at any given point, over 40% of corporate real estate is empty and unused, but still being paid for.

Space utilization data can help reduce this unnecessary real estate spending through rightsizing and better space management.

Do you need all of your space? Can you reduce your real-estate footprint?

Optimize space planning

Space utilization data enables deep insight into portfolio management.

Make informed space management decisions based on facts, not opinions.

Validate employee needs. Often employees will make requests for more resources or additional space, understanding how the current space is utilized will let you know what they actually need.

Adapt to the "new normal"

The COVID pandemic has caused a huge shift towards remote and flexible working, with the workplace transforming to provide a safe environment for teamwork, collaboration and engagement that cannot be replicated remotely.

Space utilization data can help with space management and understanding how these areas are used, whether they are the right size for your needs and whether you have the right mix.
