With a portfolio of products in the trucking and defense industries, this corporation recognized the need to evolve critical aspects of its 70,000SF technical workplace. The goal was to make the space itself a key strategic asset for innovation and collaboration, positioning it to achieve and sustain a leading competitive position in its marketplace.
The completed design succeeds on multiple fronts. The space accommodates 50% more employees than the original space plan, while at the same time dedicating half of the floor area to support agile teams by offering a wider range of flexible, activity-based work settings that will aid in the effectiveness of product design and engineering.
The product is physically present in all stages of its development, and there is a significant improvement in the quantity and quality of social and collaborative support space, daylight, and tool-enabled work settings.
