How modularity is redefining today’s commercial environments and tomorrow’s healthy workforce

How is modular furniture driving today’s commercial boom?

Commercial projects continue to be the main driver of growth in the Australian construction industry. According to the Australian Performance of Construction Index in March 2018, commercial construction expanded to 65.0 points in the overall combined industries’ performance indices matrix, the highest recorded level since the survey’s inception in 2005. The ongoing growth and high-performance of commercial construction and a dynamic, fast-moving construction culture in Australia has impacted architects and designers in two key ways:

  1. Increased competition has provided an additional impetus for creativity and innovation; and
  2. New and/or alternative options for commercial space design and fit out are being considered.

Both trends emphasise a greater focus on delivering new solutions that meet the evolving needs of end-users. To this end, furniture specification has entered new realms of demand and expectation, particularly with regard to the breadth of possibilities that modular systems can bring to the end client’s balance sheet and corporate responsibility agenda.

In the commercial sector, the rising popularity of shorter-term commercial leases, alongside the transformation of the workforce into the ‘gig economy’, and greater focus on employee health and wellbeing, has radically redefined the requirements – and, in a large part, the operations – of ‘modularity’. No longer defined by token stackability or castors, modern modular furniture has been re-envisioned by design practitioners and end users alike as a tool to achieve greater agile behaviours and adapt alongside the potentially disruptive changes to business culture over time.

In the free whitepaper below, we explore how modular furniture addresses the concerns of the modern workplace, the changing nature of the workforce. Modular furniture solutions can be instrumental in providing a flexible, healthy and productive workspace for many types of uses and users.
