Dr Greig Paterson, Design Manager for Interdisciplinary Design & Research at Drees & Sommer Middle East, recently gave an interview on the topic of increased demand for air conditioning in warm climates, with a focus on the Middle East. He covered topics like how innovative design combined with vernacular architecture principles could improve efficiency and increase wellbeing for future-proof and sustainable cities.
Sustainable buildings aren’t just energy efficient. They’re made from natural and recyclable materials, which means that they consume fewer resources and lead to employees feeling better about their workplace. On top of that, there’s a chance of achieving lower construction costs through leasing models or deposit-refund schemes. With the office facing increasing competition from the home office, we shouldn’t underestimate the significance of sustainability.
With sensors in office buildings that collect user data to optimize building operations, Customized Smart Buildings are revolutionizing the property sector. What’s more, pilot projects are showing that they are reliable too.
Abdul Majid Karanouh, Head of Interdisciplinary Design & Research at Drees & Sommer Middle East joined the company in January 2019. In an interaction with Window & Façade Magazine, Abdulmajid Karanouh spoke about his journey and shared
his views on the current situation of architectural segment post-pandemic.
In the coronavirus crisis, the home office is booming whilst the economy has collapsed. But don’t expect a long-term slump in the office real estate sector. Offices are still in demand but there’s a need to adapt to the new reality and ensure that your office still has pulling power – especially as the war for talent will no doubt continue once the coronavirus is over.
The coronavirus crisis has accelerated certain trends in the real estate market,
turning assets that were perfectly viable in the past into liabilities. For property companies, it's time to take stock and rebalance their portfolios in order to protect themselves against and prepare for any potential outside shocks in the future.
We may be some way off the new normal but there’s never been a better chance to shape it. Although the requirements of our work environment are always changing, the coronavirus has accelerated the pace of that change and we are now beginning to see a different kind of office environment starting to take shape. Workers who choose to go into the office will need to be able to tackle their most urgent tasks efficiently – otherwise, there are more options.
Having previously been the head of the Institute for Emergency Medicine and Medicine Management at the University of Munich Medical Centre, it’s safe to say that Prof. Christian Lackner, Director of the Healthcare Division at Drees & Sommer, knows his stuff when it comes to hygiene. Here, we talk to him about hygiene at work, best practices for employees and the future of work.
The office of the future is individual, flexible and location-independent. These are the key results of a recent internal survey conducted by the Drees & Sommer Group with headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.
How we can turn the still largely theoretical concept of smart cities as an urban and architectural vision that combines economy, ecology and technology, into a reality. This was the topic of a virtual roundtable discussion hosted by Drees & Sommer where a panel of regional experts shared their perspectives on the development of smart buildings and cities.
