    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

BOMA tackles tenant density in latest research initiative

The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International has announced the release of Decoding Densification: Insights and Opportunities for CRE Professionals,” a white paper that examines the effects of densification and workplace transformation on the built environment. In order to help address industry concerns, BOMA International’s white paper examines the many implications of increased density: It identifies and analyzes three main findings: that densification is happening, but unevenly; that densification is best understood in a larger context; and that the challenges of higher density are real, but manageable. Gaining a better understanding of modern workplace transformation can help those in the industry avoid potential problems and enhance building marketability to tenants. In fact, many tenants who want to decrease their square footage per employee in their space may rely on property professionals to help guide them through this process, offering building owners and management teams the opportunity to create a practical, sustainable solution for all parties.

To help facilitate this process, BOMA International has created the “Tenant Leasing Checklist: A Guide for Assessing Tenant Occupancy Density.” The checklist is designed to help property professionals consider and properly address the effects a tenant’s occupancy density will have on the building’s systems at the time of a new lease or a renewal. Using this resource, property professionals can identify more easily the areas that may be impacted by a tenant’s density, including cleaning and trash removal, elevators and escalators, restrooms, fire and life safety, HVAC and fresh air, electrical systems, parking, amenities and more. The nature and ramifications of densification can vary significantly from building to building, but knowing what questions to address beforehand can streamline the process and avoid unnecessary challenges.
