Remote working: How house builders are adapting to change


Homeworking during the coronavirus pandemic became a necessity and meant that businesses have had to find new ways of working to accommodate remote and flexible working.

It produced some very interesting results, including increased productivity and a better work-life balance. It has also raised the question whether a business even needs a physical office at all.

As lockdown restrictions eased, it became clear that we're not going to be working in the same way we did before.


Focus, therefore, is switching to what our employees’ working environments are like and is it conducive to generating quality work and productivity?

During lockdown, the Larkfleet team talked to people in their conservatories, bedrooms and even stairwells and garages. Given the circumstances, that is currently acceptable. But, what is apparent, is that older houses can be restrictive when it comes to converting 'box rooms' into home offices.

Some house builders are now considering dedicated home offices in their new designs and other ways to adapt to people’s changing needs.

Larkfleet CEO, Karl Hick, says: "In light of Covid-19, we are always researching ways in which our properties can cater for future cultural changes in society.

“For instance, spaces close to reception areas that can be kept sanitised and secure to greet people at a distance and drop off deliveries for cleansing before they enter the main house.”

What is certain is that people who are now going to be working from home, more often or permanently, are considering such factors before they buy.
