Keeping up on computer and telecommunications technology seems a full-time job these days. Jargon aside, how important is the ability to access the latest and greatest technology when deciding on my company´s next office space?
First, let´s define technological capacity as infrastructure. And yes, you should pay close attention to technological infrastructure elements such as wiring, cabling and bandwidth capabilities within a prospective office building. The quality of a building´s infrastructure determines your ability to tap into the rapidly changing technology that´s increasingly important to modern companies.
Generally, newer buildings have been “wired” for every need. Before you lease space in an older office building, make certain that the wiring has been upgraded to handle modern technology.
Pay extra attention to the technology infrastructure when checking out buildings that weren´t originally intended for office use. Lofts, converted retail space and other “adaptive reuse” spaces often-present special problems from a technology standpoint.
