Americas Office Fit Out Cost Guide 2024

The one-size-fits-all approach to office space has given way to a more customized approach to design. With input from employees and stakeholders, companies are creating office spaces that support traditional ways of working plus so much more—helping employees feel energized and inspired, supporting learning and development, fostering a sense of belonging and improving connection with company culture. Case in point: Cushman & Wakefield’s Boston office recently constructed a best-in-class office space that reflects the way employees work, including neurodiverse employees. Cushman & Wakefield’s Workplace strategist, with input from stakeholders and employees, developed a design addressing needs of a multi-generational workforce, centering neurodiverse needs and sensory processing differences. The design resulted in spaces that truly appeal to the overall employee experience and attract diverse talent: > An active recharge area for informal interactions, including a putting green for energy release and a quiet area where employees can be part of the conversation without being part of the action. > Private, quiet areas and closed-door spaces supporting focus and one-on-one conversations, as well as providing noise mitigation. > A quiet recharge area along the window line. DESIGNING FOR NEURODIVERSITY: A CUSHMAN & WAKEFIELD CASE STUDY

> A wellness room, mother’s room and a gender-neutral restroom to support a more open and diverse talent pool. These spaces were designed with the intention to support employee productivity and wellness through: throughout the office, supporting employees who manage seasonal depression and migraines. > Strategic use of calming colors and patterns on wall coverings, furniture and flooring. > Adjustable lighting throughout the office for reducing eye strain, and migraine prevention. > Ample access to natural light
