Community Solutions Partnership Services are becoming a leader in the Space Utilisation market

Space Utilisation

Community Solutions Partnership Services have developed a service which can help clients:
• Understand how your space is used
• Better understand the most effective way to manage your own environment
• Make informed choices about utilisation and rationalisation which will
• Reduce costs for under occupation
• Increase revenue with maximised utilisation

How
We utilise a non-intrusive, technological solution to provide accurate data either by individual room or desk monitoring. We use an OccupEye® workspace utilisation system which enables us to regularly collect data over an agreed period of time, usually 2 weeks, although we have had commissions for much longer. Individual data is remotely collected from small Wi-Fi monitors that we install in each room or under desks.

Following final collection we provide you with a bespoke analytical report, intelligently interpreting this and make recommendations to inform your choices to effectively use your buildings.

Why
Public sector research and our experience suggests that utilisation can be as low as 35%. National research also suggests that a 10% improvement in usage can be worth £575 pa per desk.
A recent estates survey that we have undertaken recommended the relocation of services to maximise usage to enable an increase in occupation from 34% to a potential of 80%, realising a saving of circa £275,000 pa. The survey cost was less than £6,000 and took three weeks.
