AMA WorkWare is currently being further developed as part of an innovative project to develop a framework and series of new tools to measure how well office space and technology support the business interaction that is now so essential to business success.
The project has involved collaboration between AMA Alexi Marmot Associates, the Workplace Innovation Unit at University College London and the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP).
What makes AMA different is the quality of our understanding of how occupiers use and perceive buildings.
We have progressively developed several strands of knowledge since AMA’s foundations:
- benchmarks - from the systematic collection and management of AMA WorkWare data
- methods - for engaging with users cost-effectively
- publications - based on research and writing about best practice
- collaboration - with industry associations, specialist forums and universities
AMA directors write international books on office design and planning. They produce best practice guidelines on educational buildings, design and facilities management.
