Architectural Engineering





For an architectural engineering firm, an office is more than just a workspace; it’s a portfolio piece to show potential clients.

DLZ, a Midwestern firm with 22 locations, partnered with Rightsize to PLAN and FURNISH its Chicago office to communicate the firm’s professional yet stylish atmosphere.

Rightsize worked with DLZ’s staff to understand the firm’s unique specifications, and outfitted the workstations, private offices, and communal areas to meet these needs.

To accommodate large-plan drawings, the architects and engineers needed wide work surfaces and accessible storage areas. Rightsize procured sleek workstations in a white and gray palette, with 30-inch work surfaces and storage spaces. Rightsize designed the main corridor to double as a storage area for the firm’s drawing laterals, and a casual meeting point with seating. The firm also called for sophisticated conference rooms and collaboration areas for both client and staff meetings.

Throughout the project, Rightsize provided detailed 3D renderings via its space visualization tool, VisionFX, to help the client visualize the finished office. These illustrations allowed Rightsize and DLZ staff to plan the layout and select furniture to optimize the work environment and meet the company’s specific needs.

VisionFX combines layout, design, and product selections into a three-dimensional, fully interactive platform that allows users to visualize what their office space can and will look like upon completion. The end result is a highly customized, better defined, and more efficient approach.
