Value of mock-ups in co-designing workspaces

We have recently completed the design phase of work for a new Emergency Operations Centre for the South East Coast Ambulance Service. The centre will bring together two existing sites to co-locate them into a new facility which will provide a significantly better working environment. As is often the case, the physical move is accompanied by organisational change in the way they work with new roles and...

Designing control rooms to promote wellbeing & productivity

David Watts will be presenting at the annual IBC Control Room conference asking why control rooms haven’t traditionally learnt the lessons from workspace design on producing more human spaces.  To minimise the risk of distraction etc control rooms are often austere spaces with minimal decoration or green spaces; or sometimes, in contrast, they are over-elaborate spaces designed to create eye catching visuals for the operator’s brand....
