Glasgow City Council embarked on an Office Rationalisation programme in 2009, with a vision to provide efficient, fit for purpose accommodation for the Council. The programme looked to rationalise, modernise and optimise the Council’s workspace to support greater operational efficiency.
haa’s role on this project was to assist the Council in recognising the advances in work practices, the required supporting technologies and spatial solutions – and to exploit the opportunities for Council staff to work in a more agile manner; bringing benefits for staff, the Council and the Communities it serves.
The exercise resulted in full Council buy-in to a set of strategies designed to yield massive savings in space and the adaption of flexible and efficient work patterns. Implementation is on track directly through the Council.
