Sustainable Accommodation in the New Economy

Sustainable Accommodation in the New Economy

Objective

Current workplace design activities are focussed on single work locations. SANE will be a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural R&D project that takes a location independent approach to the design of a sustainable workplace to ensure compatibility between fixed and mobile, local and remote work areas. The project will develop a unified framework for the design of a sustainable workplace. This will generate designs that empower distributed organisations to take full account of advances in location independent computing and ubiquitous networking. To assist the validation of the framework, a limited set of ICT tools will be specified, prototyped and developed, the emphasis being on the innovative application of emerging technologies and services rather than the development of new ones. The project will also specify communication interface requirements of technology products and services.
