THE WARRANTY GROUP

overview

Amid a restructuring of their corporate structure, The Warranty Group came to GREC for direction in how to create a team-focused workplace that would encourage inter-departmental connections as well as individual work settings. This was all done while reducing the overall footprint by nearly 60% to 68,000 SF within their existing building.

Private work settings were distilled down to their essential pieces and common meeting spaces were simplified, establishing an essential planning unit that resulted in a flexible workplace module that will adapt with the client’s needs for many years to come. This module easily adapts from a private office to video conference to team room to conference room, all while eliminating the need for costly infrastructure – power / data / AV – modifications.

The large 68,000 SF single floor space was made manageable for the user by breaking it into neighborhoods that were interconnected with wide walkways and easy sightlines. Each neighborhood took on a different character and color.
