SPOT

250 Employees

36,000 sq. ft

In 2019, Spot’s biggest challenge was actually quite positive—they completely outgrew their second floor space, forcing them to expand into third floor. With their expansion, Spot not only gained real estate for more employees but was intentional to highlight the building’s history and create a space with unique features—like a gym and mother’s room—to attract talent and continue to grow their millennial-driven employee pool.

Since Spot’s dedicated employees work hard and at all hours, they needed a variety of spaces to support how they work. On the third floor, various seating options promote productivity, collaboration, and connectivity. A handful of private offices, as well as conference rooms, booths, and high-top tables, provide meeting places for Spot’s active atmosphere, in addition to Frame One workstations.

On the third floor, employees also have access to a bowling alley within their new social hub. Throughout the space, Spot was mindful about their investment in lounge pieces, using Steelcase partner Blu Dot for furniture with a beautiful aesthetic but remains very hard-working and will stand the test of time. The funky fabrics and eclectic color palette throughout the space doesn’t just stop with furniture—Business Furniture provided turnkey services to bring walls to life with fabric panels.

Business Furniture’s A/V partner, Tech Your Wall, provided technology solutions from display screens to sound masking. Throughout the office, display screens feature new employees, share upcoming events, and celebrate sales wins.

Because of the volume of Spot’s order on both floors, we were able to provide competitive contract pricing—allowing Spot’s co-founders to be smarter with allocating dollars. Business Furniture reconfigured and repurposed existing pieces like workstation panels to reduce their project budget and support reuse.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Description

BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS

60 Employees

17,665 sq. ft

Big Brothers Big Sisters wanted their space to be functional but have a fresh aesthetic to reflect their new branding. Their request for workstations that are open for collaboration, cost-effective, functional, and reconfigurable for future growth is one we hear often—and we have breadth of line to provide a solution.

Upon entering Big Brothers Big Sisters, the break and training area is the main focal point. They really wanted this space to be comfortable, inviting, vibrant, and promote conversations. We accomplished their request through some great lounge furniture pieces as well as functional tables and seating for large meetings. The great room area provides a fun, more residential feel to make both “Bigs and Littles” feel comfortable right away, as being in comfortable space helps people relax and relate.

The executive team uses the private offices daily for focus work and ongoing collaboration. In the private offices, Steelcase’s Currency series is not only cost-effective and extremely durable, but can be designed for multiple work modes regardless of size. Overall, we provided furniture for all workstations, private offices, lounge areas, conference rooms, enclaves, training, and break areas.
