European association of workplace experts formed. Its Czech and Slovak representative is CAPEXUS
CAPEXUS, which designs and implements office and retail space, has become a founding member of a European association of workplace experts. Studio Alliance is a response to accelerating globalization: through member companies it can offer tenants and landlords its consulting services as well as the design and implementation of office space in 12 European countries.
The association draws on the experience of individual member companies, which have implemented more than 5,000 projects throughout Europe. "The appearance of workplaces is changing dramatically," says Karel Konečný, partner at CAPEXUS. "The role of headquarters is weakening and branches in individual countries are gaining in importance. The aim of the alliance is to help companies unify their office design and facilitate the process of handing over the finished premises."
"Although the requirements of landlords and tenants differ, both look at their portfolios strategically and with an international perspective," Konečný added. "Thanks to the alliance, companies can count on receiving the same quality of service in any location, whether they are considering setting up a branch or changing their existing premises."
The principal services of Studio Alliance members include architectural and interior design, fit out and furnishing, and workplace consultancy. It is the latter service that will become more important in the coming period.
"With the advent of flexible offices and more frequent work from home, the appearance of the workplace is changing significantly," said Daniel Matula, co-founder and Managing partner of CAPEXUS, which has created new working environments for more than 400 companies in nine years. "The new approach, exchange of experiences and sharing of trends on an international scale that the association will provide is more important than ever." CAPEXUS's clients include multinational brands such as T-Mobile, Siemens, Hello bank! by Cetelem, Sodexo Pass and Regus, with the company implementing more than 130,000 square meters of floor space annually.
The member firms were selected based on their size, demonstrable expertise, and longevity. Experience with international clients and global brands was equally important.
Studio Alliance comprises 11 members: Area Europe in the UK, Alternativ in Belgium, CAPEXUS in the Czech Republic, CDB in France, DIEM in Turkey, Ditt in Holland, DVM group in Hungary, IIS Space in Ireland, Il Prisma in Italy, Morphoza in Romania and Reesco in Poland.
