Sasaki, an interdisciplinary architecture, planning, landscape, and design firm with offices in Boston, Massachusetts, Shanghai, China, and Denver, Colorado, shares its perspective on AEC technology in this Firm Profile.
Since the start of the pandemic, employees have been working remotely and company leadership wanted to understand their space use options once it is safe to return to the office, recognizing this unique opportunity to rethink where and how their employees work. If, as a company, they want to continue working as they did pre-pandemic, how much additional real estate would they need to lease to accommodate growth? If they want to remain in their current space, in what ways would they need to change their current work model? To help answer some of these questions, Sasaki developed a web-based dashboard that allowed the client to test alternative solutions by adjusting any number of inputs.
