SOLD OUT – Case Study & Site Tour: CBRE Downtown LA
Pioneering the ‘Untethered’ Office Space
Since the early 1960s, the cubicle has dominated the corporate office environment as the standard means of controlling efficiency and privacy. The cubicle work station aimed to minimize distractions by isolating workers to separate them from their cohorts. Since then, the modern-day office space has continued to evolve from conservative to creative, enclosed to open, independent to collaborative. Since the 1960s, the corporate office environment hasn’t seen such a drastic change in ideology and pragmatism, until now. CBRE Los Angeles is setting the stage and making history with a new concept that changes everything: the ‘untethered’ office.
As recently featured in the LA Times, CBRE’s Los Angeles office has drastically changed the corporate office landscape; their 200-person office has completed its ‘free-address’ transformation. No longer are employees confined to an assigned desk, they roam freely in an open and airy environment, surrounded by comfortable couches and open work stations. In an effort to attract young employees, the office is completely wireless and minimizes the use paper. All documents and files are scanned and accessed electronically, removing over 900,000 pieces of paper. Employees work from lap tops and can sit, stand, or even walk on a treadmill from a work station. CBRE’s ambitious transformation hopes to minimize space and reduce rent and office capital expenditures. By incorporating advanced technology, high-quality amenities, and flexible work space, CBRE has started a corporate office revolution.
This event will include a tour of the CBRE Los Angeles office as well as a reception with Hors D’Oeuvres and drinks. Parking in the building after 5:30 pm will be validated, courtesy of CBRE.
