Office Area


Workspace is one of the most common space types mapped on a floorplan. This is the area where desks or workpoints are located.

Various space types can be mapped under Workspace, the most common being Desk: Standard. This is the ‘point’ or desk within the workspace. There are other space types that can be mapped under Workspace and this is configurable depending on needs.


Non-Traditional Workspace

This includes breakout spaces and alternative workspaces, like hot desks or touchdown desks.


Support Services

This includes areas that support the business outside of the actual workspace. This would include meeting rooms, security rooms, project rooms, storage, and any other Client specific requirements.



This includes the core areas such as the lifts, fire stairs, plant rooms, service areas, bathrooms, etc. 


Primary Circulation

This includes areas that require the minimum walkway space required to access the fire exits from the workspace areas.


Custom Layer

This includes custom layers, for example, Wi-Fi Access Point.
