Space Planning & Management

  • Space Planning and Management

      OVERVIEW

      Real Estate and Facility Management organizations must be able to understand the cost, amount, quality, environmental effectiveness and utilization of all of the spaces in their real estate portfolio. Manhattan Space Management is a comprehensive solution that provides for multi-tier consolidation of space and the rollup of space attributes by physical, regional and organizational dimensions. The rollup accommodates any number of space variables and standards.

      Space Planning and Forecasting
      Manhattan allows users to determine accurate supply-side space inventory in compliance with IFMA, BOMA and OSCRE standards. Space measurements are calculated and updated from the CAD interface allowing for utilization data to be made available for strategic decision making. Stacking and blocking plans allow for visualization of multi-floor or building space planning.

      Move Management (Moves/Adds/Changes - MAC)
      Manhattan’s robust workflow manages M/A/C processes across an interdepartmental facility management team. In the planning phases, an unlimited number of proposed floor plan scenarios can be created to support move planning and disaster recovery. Move lists are automatically generated.



      BENEFITS

      • Integrate HR, location, work process, building system and technology data
      • Achieve almost immediate ROI by understanding true portfolio occupancy
      • Identify areas of opportunity due to poor space utilization
      • Map space availability with forecasted future demand (by headcount, equipment or on a project basis)
      • Easily interface with AutoCAD drawings through the web without CAD residing on a system
      • Download building system and floor data through a BIM interface
      • Reduce "churn" rate due to more effective and proactive space planning
  • Moves/Adds/Changes (MAC)

      OVERVIEW

      Manhattan’s robust workflow engine manages MAC processes across teams including facility planning, IT, telecom, move management companies and customer service staff. Manhattan enables careful planning to manage churn-related costs and minimise disruptions and downtime.



      BENEFITS
