HOK’s space management team is providing ongoing real estate data management services for this insurance company. Based in London, the company has more than 100 offices across six continents.
Following our Data Quality Assessment, we recommended that the company undertake a comprehensive drawing and data standardization process. This helps ensure the integrity of its space and occupancy data.
This 16-week process included updating 177 floor plans and corresponding data within the ManhattanONE Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS). Before updating the drawings, our team completed a five-step quality process:
- Glossary of Terms: Documented industry- and client-specific real estate terminology.
- CAD Standards: Selected and applied AIA layering standards.
- Measurement Standards: Selected and applied BOMA measurement standard.
- Space Classifications: Selected and applied OSCRE standard.
- Drawing Standardization: Updated 177 drawings.
This process reduced the company’s total Usable Square Feet (USF) by 10 percent, enabling the organization to recalibrate its portfolio. The process also consolidated the number of different space types, which allowed for a more accurate, efficient space summary to support ongoing portfolio planning.
