Tetra Tech a leading engineering company with worldwide operations purchased two local firms and created a new downtown headquarters for the combined group. Partnering with SSDG Interiors, their goals were to create a smooth transition not only between the existing offices and a new space but also to facilitate a corporate culture that focused on collaboration and accessibility. All this had to be achieved within a strict budget and tight timeframe.
To meet their objectives, SSDG maximized open workspaces and implemented workstation standards that encouraged collaboration, while also accommodating concentrated work. Offices were standardized using existing furniture which was creatively reused and enhanced to achieve a functional and fresh work aesthetic. Glass fronts on perimeter meeting areas and offices ensure all employees have access to natural light. As a result, each floor feels open, accessible, and welcoming.
Through the implementation of large client and staff-friendly spaces on their reception level, Tetra Tech is now able to host both client and in-house presentations in their own space. A large kitchen and multi-purpose room are warm, colourful, and fun–inspiring staff interaction and building a corporate culture of collaboration. The room’s moveable partition enables Tetra Tech to use the space for a number of functions and the adjacent patio can be accessed for socializing and client events.
Despite a fast-tracked schedule, SSDG ensured that the client successfully moved in and resumed operations on time and on budget.
