People are at the core of all workplaces.

Understanding what makes people happy, connected and productive directly supports business goals. The most successful workplaces reflect both the unique culture of the company and the unique makeup of the workforce. Our workplace strategy group creates spaces that allow people and organizations to thrive.

We help our clients stay abreast of evolving workplace trends, adapting principles and practices for the unique needs of each organization. Our expertise is informed by a variety of data sources including past projects, academic design research literature, industry trend forecasts, demographic and generational studies, and project-specific information. Armed with objective research, we seek specific insight into each client’s culture and business model to best plan spaces that enhance productivity and employees’ daily experience.

Change Management

Integrating change management strategies as part of the transition to a new workspace reduces disruption and helps employees learn to use their new space effectively.

Generational Design

The American workforce is undergoing a transformational change as five generations share offices and knowledge. A keen understanding of perspectives and expectations guides our design for harmonious workplaces.

Collaborative Workspaces

Past office environments prioritized individual offices and workstations. The best of today’s spaces prioritize teamwork, with smaller, flexible workstations and a broad array of collaborative space options.

Wellbeing

Holistic planning integrates emotional, spiritual, physical, psychological and health-related factors into workplace design. Access to light, fresh air, outdoors, quiet spaces for concentration, commons spaces to build social relationships, and a variety of work settings to accommodate mobile work styles all contribute to a person’s sense of wellbeing.

Culture and Branding

An organization’s values, vision and culture can and should be evident in the physical space.

Technology

As technology evolves almost daily, workspaces themselves need to adapt and evolve quickly to accommodate new uses. Responsive buildings and mobile technology are creating more choices for how and where to work.
