VC Insights - The “Insights” on Space Planning and Change Management
There are a lot of terms being used in the industry today that we are frequently hearing, but not everybody fully understands. Things like “space planning” and “change management” that are said to decrease cost and increase employee productivity peak great interest among today’s business owners when looking to better their workplace environment. Being on the outskirts and hearing these terms for this first time, or even many times, one may ask themselves what these terms really mean and if these strategies are right for their company.
Q: What is Space Management (Space Planning)? Change Management? What do these things mean?
A: Glad you asked, let’s break it down. Space management (space planning) is a method of organizing certain office furniture and functions to work effectively together and create an efficient space within the workplace environment. Change management is a process that prepares and supports individuals and organizations in making organizational change. Thus, change management is the umbrella under which space management, or space planning, occurs.
Q: What are the benefits of using these strategies to better my workplace environment?
A: Space planning works so that worker productivity increases, space occupancy costs go down and manager-employee relationships are changed. Change management as an overall strategy helps to gain leverage and maximize employee performance throughout the entirety of a project. The practices within change management are designed to help provide solutions for staff concerns within the new workplace environment – something that is often encountered when engaging in a process such as space planning.
Q: How do Space Planning and Change Management work together?
A: The process of space planning itself can seem to create a disturbance within the workplace when refining the environment and momentarily displacing employees. Change management is most effective in helping employees get back to work quickly and effectively in order to keep productivity levels high. It is without an effective change management program that workers may not be as productive in their new space as the old one, which is why it is such an important piece of the puzzle in the process of organizing your space. ...

VC recently wrapped up a project with Altman Vilandrie & Company, a Boston based business management consulting company that embodies an unparalleled passion for their industry and the work that they do. Altman Vilandrie is constantly staying ahead of what’s new in their ever-changing environment and they do it in a fast-paced, dynamic way that VC set out to showcase throughout the design of their new office space. In allowing Altman’s philosophy to truly become part of the space, “free addressing” was a key element featured in the office, with unassigned employee seating replacing dedicated desks so that the environment can continue to change and adapt based on workflow and employee needs. Technology also plays a significant factor in the space, using an online reservation system to check in and out of team areas in order to encourage an organized and flexible workplace environment. The Altman logo is featured throughout the space alongside an overarching industrialized aesthetic that is brought together by an exposed ceiling, concrete floors and exposed columns which are balanced by a warm color palette and softer design elements. ...
