Slated for completion in Q1 2023, this multi-phase design project has evolved since its’ launch in 2017. This long-term client gives IDO Incorporated the flexibility to pivot to other active projects while continuing work on projects, such as those below, based on the occupants’ needs.
The first phase of this project included a breakroom expansion. Both counter height and standard tables were used to allow for seating variation and flexibility. The kitchenette area was also enlarged during this expansion. Finally, a nursing mother’s room and women’s locker room were added to the footprint of the space.
The second phase of this multi-phase project was to upgrade an existing conference room and create a bright, open main corridor with an accent wall that also features touch-screen displays.
The third phase of this corporate design project was to add a companion men’s locker room and develop a large training room to scale up this group’s overall useable space.
The fourth, and most current phase of this multi-phase design project, is to increase the size of the main entrance and add branding to this area. Not only was the overall size of this space a concern for the client but there was no corporate branding defining the space. This vestibule is the first point of contact for its’ visitors and establishing space branding is an important goal to achieve within this project. Space branding is not only important to attract clients but is also necessary to strengthen the emotional connection between employees and company members.
In addition to the above phases, other enhancements were made to the overall corporate space including increasing the size of the training room, adding a unisex restroom, adding quiet rooms, and adding touch-screen audio/visual to allow for hallway interactions or touchdown meetings to occur.
