PAPER – Ref.
The distribution of
absoption of demand by activities sector of tenants as indicator to
qualification of office buildings.* Next NUTAU’2002 - FAU/USP – São Paulo - SP - October/2002. Ref. 1002
paper aims to improve the knowledge of sectorial demands for office
buildings in São Paulo city making use of a variance of the absorption index through a new model
created to check the distribution of space absorbed. While the role of
traditional model is the knowledge of absorbed amount of office units in a
specific period focusing the building characteristics, this essay of
performance measurement - the absorption of demand – is
distinguished for the accurate investigation of stock available absorbed
focusing the real tenant’s needs by space.
methodology applied involves the selection of the units of stock available
in a fixed quarter and location and that were absorbed within the period of
analysis. When these units are occupied by the same tenant, the number of
units and the area of these units occupied were added, distributed in
ranges and classified according to the activity of each tenant by SIC -
Standard Industry Classification.
As result, we tried put in evidence the
dynamic of sectorial demands for office space through the growth,
retraction or needs for design of space by tenants, making possible the
evaluation of specified constructive aspects in office building. The new
performance measurement developed - the
absorption of demand – being it an indicator of demands by
sectors allows us to detect tendencies, to support to the development or
requalify office buildings.
