This report is the third in a series of guides designed to tackle and, importantly, exploit the thorny issue of office obsolescence. First, it sets out the international scrutiny afforded to office obsolescence in academic literature and practice-based research. It then responds with some practical guidelines on and solutions to office obsolescence alongside an appraisal of the wider socio-economic environment, which must be considered in any office-building change. It concludes with a set of recommendations for the industry, arguing that the working environment has changed forever – disrupted by new flexible business models – and that office landlords and investors must respond and adapt to this situation with their own agile solutions.
