The Faculty of Behavioral, Management and Social Sciences (BMS) is housed in the Ravelijn and Cubicus buildings on the university campus. The faculty is constantly looking for opportunities to strengthen cooperation in education, research and business operations. On the one hand, she does this through organizational optimization, such as merging departments into clusters. On the other hand, the faculty wants to support cooperation through housing as well as possible. Because departments grow and shrink each year, it is always a puzzle to offer suitable housing, with the result that many moving transactions take place. The BMS faculty asked WorkWire to research the possibilities for further optimization and to develop scenarios for this. Based on these scenarios, the Faculty Board wants to make a future-proof choice for housing.

WorkWire has mapped supply and demand for housing, both quantitatively and qualitatively. This was done through data analysis, site inspections and interviews with various stakeholders. Collaboration takes different forms and takes place at all levels. The various forms of collaboration have been inventoried and logical spatial relationships have been determined from there. The use of space has also been examined. This has shown that employees are spaciously housed, but that the existing interior ensures ineffective use, so that employees still experience a lack of space. WorkWire’s research forms the starting point for a new housing plan for the BMS faculty.
