Work environments

We help government organisations to update their ways of working and create practical, safe work environments that support their work. Our goal is to provide work environments that improve the work performance of our clients and reduce the government’s facility costs.

According to the government’s strategy, facilities should support productivity and emerging ways of work and cooperation. The government favours neither local nor multi-location work; both are equally valid ways of working. These policies also shape the facilities and their design. In future, public administration will increasingly move to shared facilities, and municipalities and the government will have joint customer service points.

Towards shared work environments

We offer shared work environments as a service in line with the central government’s premises strategy. In future, public administration will increasingly move to shared facilities and, even though government is going digital, government agency services are still required. Where government agencies are found at the same address, there is no need for citizens to visit many different addresses. And since some resources are shared, coworking spaces result in higher quality solutions for the same money. As the facilities are also designed to be energy efficient and travel decreases, this reduces the carbon footprint.
