What services in workplace design does BMA Group offer?
We have six services that complement and integrate with each other. In first, we provide fit-out consultancy where we study whether the workplace is the appropriate. We conduct workplace management where we gather information on how company operate and we work to identify need and priorities, which will allow us to have the appropriate space planning.
We do interior design, going from how we organize the space and give volume, forms, colors, design, etc. to show how the space will look, identifyin at the same time the appopriate technical solutions. We do all the needed fit out works, including in addition all furniture solutions, a part of having technological capability to leverage productivity & security. We can do all these six steps and services or just part. Our advantages is how we can interconnect all the services to maximize budgets and optimize spaces. The typical desired project is to work together with our costumer toward the best solution, which will then be budgeted. Once the budget is set, we move onto concretization.

Team Building in our “Magic Country”

Great teams make better companies and people make them successful. We strive to continue having magic days like this.

In February, through the beautiful Sintra mountains, the whole team had the pleasure of venturing into unknown terrain in this village. This was undoubtedly a unique experience in our “Magic Wonderland”. We had the opportunity to visit places like Pena Palace, Quinta da Regaleira, Cabo da Roca, and other attractions during this trip like Monserrate Palace. Ending the day with a wine tasting in the village of Sintra. In short, a day full of emotions and beautiful landscapes.

Let’s continue to have magic days like this!

Advantages of Glass Partitions in Corporate Spaces… Aesthetics or Functionality

Its brightness, resistance, easy cleaning, hygiene, transparency and enormous capacity to respond to different formats are some of the characteristics that define these partitions, which carry great benefits in their use.

Glass partition walls have been an element increasingly used in buildings and refurbishments, both for their versatility and for the modernist character they design in the environments, they can respond to completely multipurpose and distinct uses, convincing and solving the present architectural constraints.

In Offices it has been a good strategy, allowing all spaces to receive natural light and giving a spacious and light character to the space, also attributing a comfortable and welcoming aspect.

The intention is also to expand the space and the glass has this characteristic of provoking the sensation of transparency, which, in turn, provides the sensation of continuity and lightness.

Vida Imobiliaria – Does office space have to do with trends?

Does office space have to do with trends?

When we step back and look in perspective, we see that it’s about business and design first and foremost. And, BMA Group, a company specialized in Design & Construction of Office Spaces, with over 15 years of experience, present in Paris and Lisbon, has this very clear.

The pandemic has forced us to work differently and use technology in new ways. We’ve changed the way we view the workplace and better understand the need to be intentional about where we work. We live in an interconnected world and depend on our creative ability to drive innovation. There are many discussions about what the future of work will look like. They tend to be distracting and occur in an ocean of vague ideas, diluted by generic information used to support these concepts.

Technology has evolved very quickly and has allowed for greater individual customization, although many still seek standardized solutions that tend to fail to recognize what is really important and unique in each organization. There is no return. Many of the concepts for designing office spaces have changed, in some cases quite dramatically. In defining a new workplace, the typical design process just scratches the surface. To be effective, the workplace needs to be personalized. A standardized solution potentially addresses few benefits in today’s competitive landscape.

It is necessary to focus on individuals and teams, not on the general plurality. But applying a concept from another organization completely defeats the intent of the concept. With that in mind, office space now becomes a strategic and tactical tool for achieving goals. It is no longer so generic and becomes an environment that supports all the functions and interactions necessary for good performance. Designing spaces to support people, providing a great experience and creating healthy work environments are now just the basic minimum prerequisite. The workplace is about business. We must remain focused on the true reason for its existence: the purpose, the people and all the great things that come together to make each organization a unique success. For all these reasons, Space Planning, Interior Design and the most efficient and sustainable way of carrying out Fit-out Works has gained a strong relevance in office spaces.

CBRE Report: Real Estate Strategy Reset

The Covid-19 pandemics changed the paradigm of office occupancy and, consequently, the requirements that corporate real estate leaders must consider when evaluating long-term and short-term business decisions. A new market report by CBRE explores the approaches that will lead priorities and strategic outcomes for 2021 and beyond.

CBRE experts highlight eight core truths, divided into four main areas – Talent, Location, Occupancy, Design & Experience – that will guide the future of work.

In the Talent field, CBRE states that as teams start returning to the office, their desire for flexibility and freedom of choice, will originate new behaviours, specially in the way people relate with the office space and when they decide to do it (truth 1). Future corporate real estate strategies will not focus entirely on remote work or entirely on office-based work. In fact, they will emphasize the employee’s choice regarding experiences and actions that will allow them to reach a positive work-life balance. This will result in lower office utilisation; however, it does not mean the end of the office. On the contrary, it means a new start that will allow companies to reimagine the office role and its functionality. Additionally, CBRE also states that the workplace will have to be reconsidered according to an hybrid workstyle and more distributed teams (truth 2).

Regarding the Location field, CBRE experts identify that office decentralisation strategies are emerging as a tool to support current employees and attract new ones (truth 3). Office-based employees will choose spaces located in urban centres when they would need to interact with colleagues in an environment that offers them all the amenities and technology necessary to their productivity and collaboration with others. In the remaining times, they will take advantage of a network of locations, especially the ones that are closer to their home. Consequently, the migration to lower-cost locations with better quality-of-life will continue, and in Portugal is very well positioned (truth 4).
In the Occupation area, the new CBRE market report states that, even in an uncertainty environment, companies with good planning skills will stay ahead of their competitors in the current real estate market (truth 5). Additionally, flexibility solutions will allow companies to easily adapt their space utilisation strategies and employees’ feeling towards the flexible office space is growing more and more positive (truth 6). In fact, many occupiers are already using flexible office spaces as a part of a corporate strategy that allows them to maximise their long-term commitments and, at the same time, minimise the risk of having too much, or too little, office space as headcount fluctuates. The implementation of flexible approaches allows companies to stay agile, towards the current economic context and new working methods.

Finally, in the Design & Experience field, CBRE study identifies the new workspace a key factor to ensure the well-being, productivity, and commitment of employees, that will be more geographically dispersed (truth 7). Therefore, companies will need to manage change and drive innovation, to serve the needs of a more flexible workforce, at the same time supporting the achievement of strategic goals. This means the alignment between design & experience and the requirements of a flexible workforce. In addition, digital technologies will create smarter and more efficient buildings and, at the same time, improve employees’ experience, mainly through the creation of more safe and healthy workplaces (truth 8). Consequently, measurement, monitorisation and visualisation of information about health and safety is a crucial factor when considering the return to the office. Some digital applications that allow, for example, the scheduling of health screenings, booking spaces or contactless experiences, are growing in relevance and sophistication and are being considered as an essential part of the employees’ experience.

In conclusion, CBRE report reinforces that commercial real estate’s contributions to strategic business outcomes will be more evident and essential than ever before.

Returns Ligier European Series

BMA Group confirms return to Ligier European Series for 2021!

BMA Group confirms return to Ligier European Series for 2021!

Following a very successful maiden season, BMA Group once more decided to sponsor Mathieu Martins who will return to the Ligier European Series for 2021. At the controls of the Orhès Racing Ligier JS2 R, Mathieu set this year target on winning the title in the JS2 R category.

In 2020, Mathieu Martins was one of the first drivers to join the Filière Endurance created by Jean-Bernard Bouvet, with the main goal of becoming a professional race car driver. He then moved on to the Ligier European Series in the #86 M Racing Ligier JS2 R, sponsored by BMA Group, and his performance was immediately a success. In Heat 2 of the season, at the very demanding Spa-Francorchamps track, he won one of the two poles and finished second in the first race before conquering his first win on the second race. In Heat 4 at Monza, he took his second victory of the season and repeated this amazing performance at the final meeting in Portimão. Overall, he finished third in the Ligier JS2 R category, with four pole positions, three victories and two second places, which made BMA Group extremely happy and proud with the result!

“This is an opportunity to strengthen our awareness, consolidate our positioning and support junior drivers with strong potential! To sponsor Mathieu was an easy decision, also because he has dual nationality – Portuguese and French – so for BMA Group Paris and Lisboa it makes even more sense! We just wish Mathieu the best 2021 racing experience, expecting to reflect our values in what SPEED & RESISTANCE concerns” said Carlos Martins.

For 2021, Mathieu Martins returns to the Ligier European Series with the JS2 R title as his one and only goal. Considering the excellent results of 2020, and sure that this year will be even better, BMA Group will to support Mathieu Martins in his conquer for the title and sponsor his car: Orhès Racing Ligier JS2 R.

“My coach told me that it takes one year to learn and one year to win. So, after a first year of learning, my objective is clear: continue to learn my job and go for the victory in  the championship in the Ligier JS2 R category. I’m really very happy to be back at Orhès Racing. They taught me the basics of driving. I know everyone in the team, it’s like my second family. I can’t wait to start this second season with them!”, said Mathieu Martins. At BMA Group, we too share this confidence and are very enthusiastic to see how this year’s amazing journey will be!
