This multi-million dollar facility boasts 74 private offices, 40 systems stations, 1000 lineal feet of demountable walls, boardrooms, lounge areas and outdoor seating. The 40-year old company knows its value is in its employees and aimed to create a workspace for the future while making it a priority to attract and retain talent. This is one of the most successfully collaborative projects to date between LOTH, the architects, contractors and designers.


The new building is now in a prime, highly visible location to the public and on the inside has increased visibility which encourages collaboration. A client tour path winds throughout the building allowing clients to see the actual work being done within private offices, design rooms, labs, media centers and testing facilities. A crucial need for storage in private offices was needed to reduce the amount of piling and regain valuable worksurface areas. This need was fulfilled by smart workstation design within the private offices and external storage areas behind desk units. Keeping up with the transparency theme, private offices have floating ceilings and glass walls – which was preferred by the employees to enjoy the openness and view of the workplace.
