What can I tell you about the industry in 2014?
With office vacancy rates in Vancouver predicting a more tenant friendly future, businesses are starting to think about their lease rates, space requirements and evaluating if now is a good time to negotiating for those much need tenant improvements. Many new businesses are opening in the lower mainland and many existing businesses are wanting to gain a competitive edge, which is creating a growing need for the industry’s commercial building design, renovation and furniture services. Many companies are utilizing our services to discuss their need to reconfigure space, create more interactive work/learn/play environments and assist them with coordinating a project from conception to completion.
What trends are we seeing?
The biggest trend in 2014 is the move from closed office space into more open and interactive environments that promote communication and collaboration along with the integration of all types of work and learning styles. Because the design concept has changed, so must the furniture.
