LOTH provides workspace solutions for major changes

When engineering firm Dynamix decided to renovate a promising space for their growing company, they chose to partner with LOTH, Inc. in Columbus for space planning, furniture specification, and finish selection.

Challenge:

  • employees’ unique requirements: create a custom solution for workstations to accommodate the employees’ unique requirements
  • sustainable solutions: required in Dynamix’s quest for Gold LEED certification
  • provide a functional workspace: company representatives concerned about effects on privacy and noise levels, as well as attracting new talent and retaining an incredible research team

Strategy:

  • observe work patterns to uncover trends: what is needed to accomplish specific tasks
  • analyze collaboration needs: analyze how groups interact with other departments and what constitutes collaboration among teams
  • maximize footprint: maximize a smaller real estate footprint

Solution:

  • better worksurfaces and storage: created deep worksurfaces for layout space and rolled drawing storage
  • more workstation options and easy to use: workstations with user-friendly worktools
  • allow for better lighting: avoided using solid walls that block the light
  • utilized LOTH’s service capabilities: for liquidation and move management

Result:

  • positive response from employees and clients: a space that gains positive comments from employees and interest from clients
  • collaborative interaction: environment supports collaborative interaction within an open-plan setting
  • space maximized: maximizes a smaller real estate footprint
  • an open environment that uses the natural light: the space has windows around the perimeter and skylights, reducing the need for blanket overhead lighting
