Abstract

World-wide there is a great deal of movement on the market for office buildings. Since the middle of the 1990's, the steady demand-led market for office space has developed in many places to a market for suppliers. A deregulation process has been taking place in Germany for several years in the organisational structure of larger industrial enterprises, supra-regional services and public authorities. A project, or department oriented budgeting of all resources is part of this reorganisation. Above all the optimisation of the utilisation of the working area becomes the centre of a dynamic organisation of the work, as here a considerable potential for improvement can be seen. Assuming adequate space qualities, this can lead to a higher working quality. Information technology is improving software tools and the technical infrastructure for telephone networks with high bandwidths. These and other innovations bring tele-working into the area of a realistic possibility, where teamwork can be organised and carried out through a computer network. A long-proclaimed work paradigm only possible in theory can now become true: 'the office is where you are'. In this way, the requirements of offices, their technical infrastructure and their management models are changing. Harmonised with the working processes of a modern information society, the intelligent planning of flexibly usable buildings, their industrial production, technical adaptability, lifecycle and management processes will become the decisive question for building concepts for the future.
