DESCRIPTION:

In July 2016, a technology and telecommunications company opened a new facility to house its customer service and training operations. Rightsize partnered with the company to help PLAN and FURNISH the new construction – which included an open-plan workspace, private offices, communal areas, and conference rooms.

The client wanted a clean, modern aesthetic, and a space adaptable to multiple different tasks and needs. Rightsize grouped employees into teams and configured their workstations within an open office area. The client also needed space for employees working remotely, who come in occasionally for meetings with colleagues and clients, to work comfortably for a few hours or days at a time. Rightsize installed a bank of drop-in workstations with sit-to-stand desks, equipped with phone stations.

Common spaces played an important role in the new office, offering room for groups to meet and train. The footprint of each individual employee is becoming smaller in modern offices, but these communal areas ensure that workers still have opportunities for privacy and focused collaboration. Rightsize installed large meeting rooms equipped with teleconferencing capabilities for training new customers, as well as modest huddle rooms for smaller groups of employees to use.

The new facility is now open and operating smoothly.
