Space utilisation is usually defined as a measure of how rooms and spaces are being used, both in terms of how often rooms are used and, when they are in use, how many people are in them, and space utilisation surveys provide the only objective measure of the efficiency with which the estate is used.
Space, like time, is money, and if your institution is typical, servicing and maintenance of accommodation is the second largest cost it has to bear. Without efficient space management, the resources tied up in your institution’s estate are not used to best effect. Reducing estates costs by using space more efficiently can release funds for other more important activities.
It is also important to emphasise maximizing the flexibility of room uses.
Some rooms will only ever be suitable for a specific use, but if rooms are designed for flexibility where possible, they can be used by a wider range of users.
