The creative teams for the Communications and Marketing departments are housed in this office complex. The building had not been updated in 15 years. The flooring was in good condition, but outdated in color and design. Through the use of Shaw Contract’s exciting designs in Beyond, Depth and Presence, we were able to bring “POP” and excitement to entry areas and conference rooms, while acknowledging the color scheme of the existing office furniture (that will be with us at least 15 more years!) We unified the two areas by utilizing a third carpet style in the hallways. We also selected colors that honored our University’s official colors – blue and gold. We took a little “liberty” with the gold by using the Graphite Copper, but we definitely got the blue in the building!
Currently, the building has finished walls and “half-walls” in some areas. However, there is talk of redesigning portions of the building to an open office system to support collaborative work space. No problem – as carpet tiles provide that flexibility! No need to install patches. We can pick up the tiles and rearrange them as needed. As for “freedom” – Beyond’s styling can open the door to all kinds of possibilities! Just open up your mind and let the creativity flow!
