  • Commute analysis and location study
  • Deep dive to understand leadership vision, company culture, and challenges they are facing


  • 25% reduction from current footprint
  • Selection of most appropriate location based on commute analysis
  • As a result of the research activities, the client became interested in developing long-term opportunities for flexible working thus planned to implement activity-based workplace (ABW) solutions in their future office location
