In recent years, there have been numerous reports and research projects which make the argument for creating ‘high performing buildings’ and its importance for employee wellbeing and retaining tenants.
There’s also been a trend towards corporate occupiers demanding high-quality space to increase employee engagement and productivity and to recruit and retain workforces. However, despite this, very little has been done by the industry in response and there are only a limited number of high-profile developments being created as high performing buildings. Critically in the secondary property market there has been little improvement in the performance of buildings.
We believe there needs to be a change in mindset among investors, developers and asset managers, towards developing more high-performing buildings to reap the financial rewards available. These buildings do not cost more to produce and yet they attract a higher quality of occupier and can increase sale prices – in some cases by 30%.
The industry should also be doing more to educate corporate occupiers about the positive impact these buildings can have on their bottom line.
In this white paper, we have calculated how much corporate occupiers can save by improving the productivity and engagement of its employees through a high-performing building – making it a desirable asset.
