DESCRIPTION:

When a national mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering firm outgrew its headquarters in the Greater Chicago area, the company turned to Rightsize to help PLAN and FURNISH its new HQ location. Rightsize has a long history of working with the firm in the industry, and the project was a seamless partnership from start to finish, bringing in employee ideas and buy-in at every stage.

The firm had two main priorities for the new office: to provide more room for a growing staff, and to create a vibrant, creative work environment that would attract young talent. Rightsize planned and furnished the entire facility, incorporating open workspaces, private offices, collaborative areas, a break room, meeting space, and reception area. The Rightsize team incorporated bold, branded colors throughout the office interior and furnishings.

The open office area featured sit-to-stand desks, benching stations, and glass wall fronts. Large work surfaces allowed for easy collaboration over design drawings. A media room integrated conference tables with TVs to facilitate presentations. The break room formed a multipurpose space, combining a kitchenette, lounge, and recreation area.
