The pandemic has fundamentally shifted the long-held assumption that businesses need a traditional office space for their workers. In a Q&A session, Peter Kerr, Michael Gallacher and Hazel Pearson will consider the outlook for office-based work in a post-Covid world.
Peter has over twenty five years experience getting heavily involved in the design concept and delivering on the promise of low energy, cost effective, aesthetic design. During his career Peter has pushed the boundaries of innovative office design delivering 7 firsts for Scotland including: One West Regent Street – the first office space to achieve an EPC ‘A’ without the requirement of renewable technologies; Cornerstone building – the first circadian lighting installation to improve health and well-being in the office; KPMG Glasgow – the first BREEAM Excellent for a fit out scheme; 177 Bothwell Street – the first WiredScore Platinum certification; The Grid – the first building registered against the WELL Building Standard; Brodies – the first WELL accredited fit out; and Registers of Scotland – the first implementation of S.A.D booths and the first time the base build EPC of an office in Scotland has been elevated from B to A though Cat B fit outs.
Expect ideas for architects and designers to future-proof workspace design, exploring the question “what could the future role of a central office look like?”. And how to ensure offices can hold onto their role as a centralised, collaborative space – not a thing of the past – and the vital role design innovation and technology will play.
