Activity based working: The Hybrid Organisation: Buildings
The logical destination is a concept we have called activity based working (ABW) – an approach to work that does not require a traditional office, but a ‘hybrid environment’ that provides a place for people with shared amenities and spaces. ABW space will be used on a need basis, acting as a home for a population, providing resources and specialised facilities, as and when they are demanded. The buildings that are provided will be thin – housing less complex infrastructure that, in turn, requires less cooling and power, and so creates not just a sustainable future but a place that is attractive, energised and connected – the social networked office.
