Abstract

The office profile of specific urban districts is investigated from the points of view of certain aspects of functional structure of offices and face-to-face contacts by office employees. A comparative study is made of five cities in the Netherlands. Offices in three zones (urban core, ring or subcentres, residential areas) are analyzed for aspects of functional structure, such as industrial category, organizational position, type and orientation of activities, and labour profile. Face-to-face contacts have been differentiated by degree of involvement of the organization as well as that of employees, functional and spatial contact-fields. The range of locational tolerance for offices on the urban level is broader than hypothesized, the influence of size and the difference between large and medium-sized office centres have to be realized.
