With the threat of the COVID-19 virus, our society has been temporarily transformed. While everyone is working to make the best of it, lots of otherwise crowded spaces have been left empty. If you own, rent, operate or manage a space that’s currently empty or not working at capacity, this article has been written for you.
our advice: use this time and the fact that your space is empty or mostly empty to re-assess it and optimize it. Re-assessing your space will allow for proper planning of furniture, inventory and equipment. All spaces, whether already in operation or newly built and renovated/remodeled call for efficient optimization and smart interior layout. At IFTI, we created our 3D PROvision solution to allow all facilities owners and operators to thoroughly assess their space, minimize operating costs and grow potential revenue.
Let’s go through the re-assessing process using the IFTI 3D PROvision solution.
Organize your Floor Plan.
IFTI PROvision delivers a 3D digital walkthrough of your space, along with a floor plan, all easily accessible on our cloud. Having the ability to view, share and add comments on your digital 3D scans will allow you to optimize your facilities and to thoroughly work out space for your inventory, furniture and equipment layout, and organize future work, renovations and design upgrades if needed. Redoing your floor plans while your space is still empty allows you to start an optimization process that may not have taken place if your space was functioning at full capacity, and doing so could save you in operating costs going forward and allow you to take full advantage of your facility’s revenue potential.
If you had been operating your space before this crisis, you can use our scans to plan and execute any remodel or renovation work you’d have had to close your space for before, and thus work to optimize your space to it’s full potential.
