Advanced technologies make way for new workplace design elements
Schemmer’s Scott Heaney, AIA, was featured in Midlands Business Journal addressing Schemmer’s lobby area renovations. He said larger graphics and large-format printing are more achievable now than in the past because of advanced equipment and less prohibitive costs.
“You can print on almost anything and the quality is excellent,” Heaney said. “The front area is the public face. We want to better display our projects, because it’s not as much about us.”
Recently, Schemmer implemented the “Voice of the Client” wall display in Schemmer’s lobby that features client testimonials on stainless steel plaques. The wall layout allows for plaques to be rearranged with the addition of other plaques.
In addition to front-end renovations, Heaney said clients are also doing extensive back-end renovations in order to maximize space to accommodate for a growing workforce. Heaney previously mentioned that the “open-office” environment isn’t for everyone and has seen cubicles reach a “happy medium” of 54 inches high, which is “not too tall nor too exposed.”
