Colliers International has adopted an open workplace strategy in its North County San Diego office. The new space is the culmination of a three-year project to transition to an open and collaborative model. It includes flexible workspaces and ample collaborative and communal spaces as well as integration of technology and outdoor amenities. Colliers’ Central San Diego office completed a similar transition in 2016. We sat down with Andy La Dow, managing director of Colliers International San Diego region, to talk about the new workplace strategy and what it means for the firm’s office practice.

GlobeSt.com: Why did you adopt this new workplace strategy?

Andy La Dow: We have two offices in San Diego, and this is a culmination of a strategy that we have had for more than three years to make a number of changes operationally. We were looking to take two offices that we have in San Diego to operate more as a region and less as silos. In order to successfully do that, our physical work environments needed to be consistent and change the way that we do business physically in San Diego. With the completion of the Carlsbad office renovation, we have successfully completed a total renovation of both offices.
