Brookfield Corporate Office Comes Together Under One Roof
Modern Office Design in a Unique Space
Connect was thrilled to have the opportunity to work closely with Brookfield’s New York head office, ensuring their numerous design parameters and branding standards were met as part of this transformational project.
The recently vacated 26,000 square foot space had housed a long-term tenant in a dated and segregated office environment – discordant from current workplace standards that promote access to light, improved communication and collaboration, and workplace wellness for all employees.
Furthermore, the existing floor plate combined multiple changes in floor levels, heritage architecture within a newer building, old service areas, varied ceiling heights, and many challenges to meet current barrier-free accessibility and building code requirements.
Connect’s challenge was to find creative solutions that balanced design and aesthetics with client function and building code standards within existing heritage conditions
Developing New Furniture Standards
A “no private office” mandate necessitated that Connect provide a workstation with personal storage solutions, accommodations for mobile and fixed technology, acoustical privacy, and ergonomics–while maintaining an open and light filled space. Connect’s workstation solution, combined with an integrated white noise system, allowed Brookfield to maximize staff density in a multi-disciplinary environment.
Connect’s in-house furniture team seamlessly integrated the furniture sourcing and installation into the project schedule.
On-site Hypercare was provided post move, ensuring “on the spot” troubleshooting for all employees and facilities staff.
Bringing the Vision to Life
Detailed contract documents and proactive project management, including the construction phase, furniture installation, and move management came together to successfully deliver the project exactly on schedule and to the client’s satisfaction.
Connect provided strategic space plans and designs to develop this new workspace in an innovative and aesthetically pleasing way, while meeting Brookfield’s desire to have a consistent workstation standard for all levels of employee.
From vision to final outcome, Connect and Brookfield worked in partnership to make this important initiative an unqualified success.
