Elements of good people flow

4 main characteristics that shape people flow in office buildings

1. THE IMPACT OF OFFICE HOURS AND NUMBER OF TENANTS:

  • Three peaks: morning, lunchtime, afternoon
  • Single tenant offices tend to have higher traffic between floors rather than multi-tenant

2. ENTRANCES AND SURROUNDINGS:

  • Choice of vertical transportation means depends on which entrance people use
  • Optimizing the total journey time between entrance point and destination

3. DIFFERENT USER NEEDS AND ROUTES:

  • Office workers use the building frequently and optimize their movement
  • Visitors need clear guidance
  • Goods flow should not disturb visitors and regular users

4. SAFETY, SECURITY AND EMERGENCIES:

  • Access controlled and public areas with clear physical access solutions and access rights
  • Building evacuation plans and emergency routes
