FCW : July 30, 2013
16 July 30, 2013 FCW.COM Work spaces cated 170 square feet per person in of ce space. Now the trend is toward 150 square feet, Kadzis said, and the Of ce of Management and Budget has set a goal of 130 square feet per per- son for federal workplaces that want to renew or obtain a lease. OMB also has a goal to increase the level of telework among federal employees. "You do have a lot of wasted space," said Kadzis, who estimates that cutting- edge employers now designate about 60 percent of real estate to collabora- tive space, 20 percent to quiet, focused space and the balance to a combination of social and learning space. To ensure the success of its head- quarters redesign, GSA put technology tools such as email and videoconfer- encing in the cloud so employees could access them while working remotely, whether they are at home, traveling for work or in another federal of ce. The new building has ubiquitous wire- less, with no break in service between oors. Coleman's team also supports lightweight mobile phones and tablet PCs, giving employees more choices and exibility. By staggering employees' move into the new space, GSA officials were able to continue testing, experi- menting and learning. They put coffee bars and large conference rooms in the same spot on each oor to facili- tate impromptu meetings and make it easier for employees to nd available space on another oor if necessary. The agency also decided to share the Interior Department's cafeteria across the street to trim costs and provide an opportunity for employees to intersect, interact and build networks. "We're seeing people constantly moving around and having a wide variety of work settings that provide choice," Pogue said. She added that complex projects typically involve a number of teams, agencies and indi- viduals, so "if you're trying to speed up that process, those spaces need to be in close proximity. They need the availability, and you need to be able to quickly move from individual to team space and back again." To prepare for a more exible and open work environment, GSA's rede- sign team considered factors such as the acoustics of larger conference rooms, how to make every partici- pant in a virtual meeting feel included, creating quiet zones away from more noisy activities, and even the weight and functionality of furniture, which employees can now move around to create different work spaces. Occu- pancy sensors not only turn off lights and electrical outlets when they're unused for a certain length of time, they also provide data on the use of work spaces so GSA can continue to make adjustments.
