The client began in a home office in 2001 providing Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) service and delivery. After strategically focusing on product and service quality as differentiators, the client has grown to providing service to tens of thousands of PERS users throughout the United States. To accommodate their growth, the client relocated their office, wanting more of a presence on the Lancaster Avenue corridor, all while ensuring that their family-owned business culture remained. The firm designed the new space to accommodate future growth by fitting out the unused second floor so that it is ready to use when needed. The two spaces are connected by a large stairwell that the firm’s Creative Studio team designed a full-size custom graphic wall covering for that can be seen from the street.
The client’s new space was designed to incorporate an open work plan (use of Shaw Contract carpet), with the break room serving as the “heart” of the space (use of Shaw Contract LVT). A custom branding wall with the word GATHER encompasses the spirit of the family-owned company and their commitment to provide a work and play culture for their employees. Flexible meeting spaces, a lounge, training room and large conference rooms provide a variety of spaces to suit different needs and give employees the flexibility needed to do their jobs. In addition, the basement was designed as a social room complete with dart board and an employee-only gym.
