Simon Rawlinson, Partner and Head of Strategic Research and Insight at Arcadis, and author of BCO research Enabling The Digital Workspace, will present key findings from the report. This research examines how the development of the digital workspace will create opportunities for both workers and building managers to use buildings more effectively; and how digital capability will contribute directly to creating a positive customer experience for all building users.

Many offices are still specified to provide an analogue rather than digital experience - systems are not joined up and difficult to integrate. The low level of adoption of 'smart systems' in offices affects the ability of office owners and managers to optimise performance using data and analytics. The report argues that through creating opportunities to improve space utilisation and reduce energy consumption, the adoption of digital workspace technologies can deliver immediate savings to building owners, whilst the wider benefits to the workforce (providing high quality space that supports collaborative working) are also likely to deliver long-term benefits.

The project team will then introduce Picton's '180 West George Street' before conducting tours of the available floors at this outstanding refurbishment, located at the heart of Glasgow's Central Business District. Carefully designed to offer contemporary, open-plan office space, the building delivers high specification features of superb quality throughout. Offering 16,168 sq. ft. arranged over two floors - with a third floor soon to be available - it features an impressive triple height atrium with stunning architectural features and unique light sculptures.
