Nottingham City Council: Efficient Workspace Case Study
The challenge: Nottingham City Council owned 25,600m2 of floor space for 2,300 employees across six different locations. These assets were core resources for the council, so it was essential that changes were made without disrupting any services. An initial survey found that formal meeting rooms remained empty for 40% of the day.
An initial survey found that formal meeting rooms remained empty for 40% of the day. This identified a key area that needed to be addressed to ensure Nottingham City Council was maximizing the space of its’ real estate.
The Results: The Council is now saving around £3.9 million a year due to a range of factors:
- More efficient use of space
- A reduction in accommodation costs
- Greater energy efficiency and sustainability
- Re-use of the divested space
However, this is more than just a matter of cutting costs. The move also allowed the Council to develop a better working culture based on teamwork, higher productivity and improved work-life balance for employees.
