Let’s talk about intelligent urban solutions and future workspaces
More than 60% of the global population will live in cities by 2050 and 600 mega-cities are expected to generate 60% of the world’s GDP by 2025, according to McKinsey. This rush is being driven by a desire for a better quality of life and poses enormous challenges to developing existing structures and future districts. In the same time, the way we work is changing as technology is enabling an increased choice in work location. Thus designing the employee experience is a challenge employers are facing more and more.
Let’s discuss how to tackle these challenges at this year’s Expo Real from the 7th to the 9th of October in Munich:
Mobility: How can we better connect people, goods, services and places – even in car-less districts?
Resilience: How do we ensure cities are protected against chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience?
Sustainability: Are our districts and buildings ready for the climate in 2030 or 2050?
Energy: How can we create Net-Zero Carbon buildings?
Workspace: Learn how we engineer natural lighting, air quality and thermal comfort to boost wellbeing and productivity of your employees.
Looking beyond the building to design spaces that not only work for businesses, but also create happy and healthy communities.
We have comprehensive experience in the design and delivery of bespoke office projects in Europe and worldwide. A dedicated “Technik” Team in Europe specialised in technical support and design of workspace projects.
Our recent experience includes the design and delivery of contemporary workspaces for major international clients including Salesforce, Zalando, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, WeWork, Unispace and Edge Technologies among others.
Harnessing the power of data to optimise urban environments
We have developed tools to allow us rapid optioneer masterplan and building options with collaborators, helping people understand the impacts of their decisions in real-time on issues such as noise, air quality, congestion and energy.
Using this evidence base, we can then link these to health and wellbeing outcomes, and ultimately financial performance.
These tools are not a black box hidden away but are a vital part of our engagement with communities ensuring that people are at the heart of what we do.
GIZ Keystone Papers
Looking at the current situation and emerging topics of buildings, districts and cities in Germany to inform international developments
We have developed five keystone papers for GIZ’s Sino-German Urbanisation Programme on the emerging issues in urbanisation and the green building sector in Germany. They address the challenges posed by both rapid urbanisation and climate change to the economy, society and the environment.
