Modernizing government workplaces: towards evidence, as well as experience
March 2004 | Wim Pullen, Stephen Bradley
Based on a presentation entitled 'Modernising government workplaces’ this article in Facilities looks at how modernisation can help in increasing productivity in the workplace. Examines public buildings as economic and social assets and factors of productivity while taking into account the work of the Commision for Archiecture and the Built Environment (CABE). Concludes that CABE should set up an independent research body that produces ecidence-based knowledge, applied in educational programmes at universities, commercial training bodies and professional institutes, and which provides evidence-based knowledge, not just experience based learning.
