The nature of work, worldwide, is slowly undergoing a deep and dynamic drift towards technology dependent thought based domains. Simultaneously, as global market focus shifts towards Asia, the need for lower product price points will force all round cutting of costs. There is already a huge pressure on companies to reduce operating costs of both manpower and offices. The young knowledge brigade, who forms the backbone of organizations, is known for their impatience and lack of organization loyalty. Office buildings have an increasingly important role to play not only in enhancing profitability but also lowering attrition rates.
Since most of the people spend their working life in them, buildings must provide not only an experiential work environment but also deliver it at lower cost of both acquisition and maintenance. To be truly sustainable their first cost and their subsequent running cost must be lower and verifiable so that the benefit can be passed on to the occupiers. In order to be able to achieve this they have to be auditable engineering solutions rather than mere design forms. Global thought leaders in the field have acknowledged Metro Valley's pioneering work in the area of creating More from Less.
Globalization and change in nature of work is creating an increasingly diverse workforce. How to create buildings that facilitate productive and inclusive workplaces for them?
250 million people consumed nearly 30% of global resources in the name of The Great American Dream. What would happen to global resources if the new Asian economies began living a similar dream?
Globally, corporations strive to create a work environment that enhances productivity & creativity through human interactions. And yet why do most buildings they work in are designed to keep people apart?
Office buildings are built for people and organizations that spend up to 40% of their lives inside them. Why are these real stakeholders in office buildings never involved in designing them or the facilities that they offer?
The demand pattern in Asia indicates that lower cost solutions will be the sustaining force of company profits. How to give companies' greater control that helps them lower their workplace costs?
There is an ongoing debate between conflict of interests between corporate profitability and environment sustainability. Shouldn't true sustainability mean lower cost for both creating and maintaining buildings?
