Over the last decennia Knevel Architecten has created a number of convenient working environments in offices and industrial buildings, in new build as well as in existing buildings.
In the 20th century it was still necessary to store both current and old paper documents in file cabinets and archives. Today more and more of the work processes and communication methods occur digitally. Often spacious file archive storage and designated workspaces are no longer needed. And due to the fact that digital information can be accessed from a greater distance, the possibilities of working from home have increased. And the more common use of mobile IT-devices and easy access to the internet also have increased mobility rapidly.
As a result a growing amount of companies use 100% flexible workspaces, meaning there are no more designated office workplaces. This type of work environment forces employees to work closer with one another and increases the flexibility for organizing teams and activities. Also it often calls for a change in mindset of the employees.
The concept consists of three important pillars that must be in good balance:
people - place - technology.
And to acquire the right balance, Knevel Architecten distinguishes following interdependable factors:
- to organize work processes based on types of activities
- to implement technology to support the work method
- to direct the general behaviour to make the work method succeed
