Johnsrud Architects is proud to announce the completion of a substantial achievement for a fast-tracked Workplace Innovation project supporting corporate Alternative Workspace initiatives.

The project assessed corporate guidelines to create a variety of flexible gathering and workspaces for laboratory staff. The project area was divided into two functional areas: a quiet “heads down” space and a “collaborative” open meeting area. This new alternative workspace environment includes a café-style kitchenette, flexible open meeting space, collaborative seating and workspaces; multiple meeting spaces, a media-scape room, and multiple private quiet rooms. Our services included programming with senior leadership teams and R&D representatives, design, and construction administration of 3,000 SF of innovative administrative workspaces. Critical design considerations included:

   ■  Technical assessments for noise reduction and acoustical controls, with priorities specific to wall and ceiling construction and wall to window conditions.
   ■  Coordination of IT/Power and furniture was also well integrated and works to support an effort-free, flexible and responsive workplace.
   ■  The choice of materials, colors, ceiling to floor transitions, and patterns to enhance the experience of the space and help to make a pleasant environment to collaborate and conduct business.
