Introducing Research Lab Analytics – A dedicated research space and productivity optimisation service

Buro Happold is among the very first to connect data and analytics with productivity in research spaces by combining data on collaboration, security, space quality and utilisation, and building performance. Our real-time design, visualisation and reporting capability has the potential to revolutionise how research space is planned, used and monitored.

Powered by our Analytics engine, Research Lab Analyics is a unique planning toolset that enables clients to participate in optimising the design and operations of their research facilities. This provides easy to digest insights into the quality of environment along with how and why space is used. Building performance and staff wellbeing are also assessed.

Over 15 years’ experience in optimising buildings

Knowing the most productive interior layout and environment means that clients can design and operate their offices with particular outcomes in mind. For example, which seating plan results in the best collaborative output? Which arrangement of breakout areas delivers the most creative solutions? What environment delivers the most productive workforce?

Being able to benchmark office design with some of the world’s best-known brands can provide insight into which people-oriented office designs are most likely to retain and attract the best talent.
