Flexibility is one of the most important attributes of an open plan office design, but it can’t exist without a way to put power and data everywhere your employees need it.

Building owners, facility managers, and interior designers are increasingly focusing on creating multipurpose spaces that can transform to meet different needs throughout the day and evening. Think of a collaborative space that can host a yoga class at night, or a lobby or café that can accommodate large staff meetings when the furniture is rearranged.

Agile spaces offer owners and managers a way to maximize their return on the investment that they pour into their buildings – and they need connectivity to match.
