Touch panels in the lobbies of each floor allow employees to opt into where they may like to work on any given day. Collaborative project rooms make it easy for two or more people to work together both onsite and around the world using HD smart boards, video conferencing and ceiling-mounted mics. Reliable connectivity bridges all aspects of the building and its users within flexible spaces that can be used for just about anything, ranging from trainings and presentations to small meetings, even parties. These spaces include a party button that dims the lights and turns on music. “You’re never paying for a room that’s not in use,” said Brooman. The eco-friendly factor means that lights, temperature and even technology are adjusted in any space that’s not occupied. UBM is also able to lease space as its goals change. Since UBM uses an open desk policy wherein no one desk belongs to any one employee, people use lockers to store personal belongings. Not even these smart lockers are tethered to any one person; they’re touch-enabled. The building best seems to deliver a constant flow of technology that most users will never even see. Brooman says that ultimately what ends up being the smartest and greenest technology also needs to be inconspicuous. “We do our best work,” he said, “when no one knows we’re there.” Brooman knew that no matter how many pretty features might be added to make UBM the success story he intended – the space would have to work well and function securely. Period.
