The ECMC Group, a nonprofit organization providing student loan support, wanted a new workplace that would better reflect its brand values and commitment to its employees. The company needed more flexibility and opportunities for collaboration in their workspace. Our team delivered a transformative solution that reduced private offices by 75 percent and increased collaboration space types by 30 percent.
A single large employee hub forms the heart of the office, which seats 200 people, offers striking city views, and is directly adjacent to a 3,500 square-foot rooftop deck for socializing, relaxing, and resting. Vertical circulation connects each floor and promotes mobility and impromptu collaboration. Utilizing an architectural wall system for all offices was a key element in introducing more flexibility, as well as creating a single size universal office and workstation. The result is a contemporary working environment with space for growth, efficiently delivered with a 30 percent reduction of square footage from their previous space.
