Oktra spoke on the panel for Bisnow’s ‘Myth v Reality’ webinar on the future of office design, along with Seaforth Land, Goldman Sachs, Rubix and Brookfield.
A consensus is forming that rather than fundamentally changing the way people and companies use offices, COVID-19 will instead accelerate changes that were already well underway in workplace real estate. The biggest and best companies, both real estate owners and occupiers, were already utilising technology and design to create offices that reflect the way people use workspace — so what are the key strategies to take forward into the new world?
This is just one of the questions Bisnow’s ‘Myth v Reality: The Future Of The Office, By The People Shaping It’ set out to answer. Oktra Design Director Dom Dugan joined the panel along with Jack Sawbridge, VP of Acquisitions at Seaforth Land, Mike Tayor, Global Head of Workspace at Goldman Sachs, Martin Wallace, Head of London Leasing at Brookfield and Oliver Hawking, Co-founder of Rubix.
The experts discuss how development offerings have changed over recent years and how innovative developers are positioning their assets for the future, as well as touching on COVID-19’s impact on the market landscape.
