Collaborative Space v Focus Space

As an attorney and an advocate of collaboration I've long sensed the quiet conflict between the beehive of collaborative work and solitary focused nature of what the article by Gensler's Tim Pittman, linked below, calls "Focus in the Work Place". 

Advocates of BIM, IPD and related improvements in work flow processes need to pay attention to the distinction.  Collaboration, learning and socialization in the workplace revolve around "focus work", the time and space in which we produce a work product that adds value for our clients.

The image below, extracted from Pittman's article, accurately and succinctly summarizes the various work modes.  Gensler's focus is on designing facilities and infrastructure that supports those modes of work.  Collaborative Construction focuses on the creation and implementation of a legal framework that supports every mode of work.

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!
