$700,000 savings in new lease costs
Expecting a 10 percent growth, CompTIA assumed a larger space would be in its future.
Before moving forward with a lease, however, CompTIA reached out to Little. With help from our sensor technology partner Relogix, we conducted a sensor-based study of seat utilization with 300 sensors carefully monitoring exactly how often seats were getting used.
Metrics Driven Planning
With help from our sensor technology partner Relogix, we conducted a sensor-based study of seat utilization monitoring exactly how often seats were getting used.
The results were surprising. Data gathered from sensors mounted in offices and workstations revealed an average of 34% seat utilization – about ½ of their 60% target.
Little’s strategists then analyzed the utilization data and developed a set of data-driven recommendations for improving space use.
The strategies accommodated immediate growth needs within the current building footprint but also included ideas for accommodating long-term growth. And, on top of it all, these results could all be realized without any space or furniture reconfiguration.
