New technologies are transforming the traditional workspace allowing building owners, operators, and developers to attract and retain tenants in a competitive market. (Learn more about the smart building technology.)
Two of the largest expenses for law firms are real estate and technology. ESD, now Stantec Practice Leader for Technology Mo Fahim says higher-end spaces may have an advantage because they support new technologies better.
Fahim is quoted in a recent article for The American Lawyer’s online publication, Law.com. In “Are Law Firms’ Real Estate and Tech Spending Invariably at Odds? It’s Not That Simple,” Fahim says technology is a key component to more deliberate and strategic planning for law office design.
Fahim says, “The next generation of the workplace needs to be a space that functions as though it is in the outside world, a consumer technology-enabled world, where everything is at your fingertips.”
The article is fourth in a series for Law.com that examines “The New Normal?”—a look at the future of work in the legal industry.
Mo Fahim freely shares his knowledge and passion for innovation with other industry professionals as part of ESD, now Stantec’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
