2017 Workplace Design Review
DLR Group’s Workplace Studio celebrated another year of growth in 2017. Review the accomplishments our clients achieved with our workplace design:
We welcomed Staffelbach, a lauded workplace design firm in Dallas, and Studio Hive, a boutique workplace design firm in Minneapolis to the DLR Group family. This infused our team with more than 80 new designers, project managers, planners, and strategists. Our increased bench depth has strengthened our ability to bring best-in-class ideas, solutions, and processes to our clients.
We’ve also doubled down on our commitment to Workplace Elevated (WE), our workplace strategy program. How would you feel if 79 percent of your employees experienced more collaboration, and 64 percent were more productive in your workplaces? What if by increasing your employees’ satisfaction in their work environment, you could also increase their loyalty to your company? Our investments in research–and dedication to applying our findings to our design solutions–have produced these exact outcomes in recently completed projects.
Our core and shell design continues to grow as well, with corporate headquarters for global tech firms and award-winning, environmentally-progressive speculative office buildings for developers in urban markets across the nation.
The workplace industry is in the midst of a sea change: The pendulum has swung from operating cost reductions through homogenization and densification, to efficiencies through activating individual performance and wellbeing. This paradigm is perfectly matched to our long-held promise to elevate the human experience through design.
Read the highlights of 2017 in our design review. Building off of a great year, we’re excited for the future of workplace.
