Housing a government branch in one smart building is complicated. Often, there are many subdivisions within each niche area of the branch, which can sometimes become confusing to find or manage properly in a large building. This can cause production delays, employee dissatisfaction, and other organizational issues. Luckily, most smart buildings from Schneider Critical include something known as a “connected room solution.” First developed for retail or commercial space, this construction type is quickly being integrated into any type of smart office building, including government facilities. A connected room solution essentially allows for different rooms of the building to all be connected via smart technology, but also allowing them their own space. This is a great opportunity for any government wanting to house large numbers of different employee sectors under one roof but not having to sacrifice organization or individual employee satisfaction to do so. Still not convinced? Below are some more benefits of installing a “connected room solution” to your government smart building to improve the corporate structure and employee fulfillment.
Separate, but United
The best part about installing a connected room solution is that individual sectors and branches under your government organization can be totally separated from neighboring branches if they desire. However, everyone is still in the same building. This is a great opportunity for not only keeping the office layout optimally organized for best results, but it also keeps employees happy. For example, let’s say a branch has recently merged from another office into your new smart building, and the employees preferred keeping their office at a certain temperature. Most smart buildings under a connected room solution plan will allow for a thermostat change in one general area that does not affect the rest of the building. This may seem like a minor concern to consider, but having this luxury is very nice and may increase retention in the eyes of employees. This is also very important in terms of power solutions since some rooms will likely need to be kept at a certain temperature that may not be ideal for an office. A connected room solution plan will allow for temperature keeping in that area without affecting the rest of the agency. Connected room solutions also allow for rearranging the office to whatever layout a branch feels most comfortable with little to no rearrangement of hardwiring or construction.
All the Advantages of a Smart Building
Of course, separate spaces are not the only benefit of a government smart building. Connected room solution plans are just a part of the building infrastructure itself. Smart buildings usually include efficient energy use, integration of smart technologies like apps and auto-analytics, and optimal design for employee performance. Combined with a connected room solution plan, this will create an almost unstoppable combination leading toward max effective employee production. Make sure to discuss a connected room solution plan when designing this indispensable part of your government smart building’s construction and infrastructure.
