Our small office is made up of 22 amazing people, but the impression the physical office makes on our customers does not project this.

Our office is made up of old, tired chairs, sticky-backed square carpet tiles industrial lighting and plain white walls.

We have an old white board and little storage space, so things are just stacked where there is room.

The office is not comfortable or accommodating.

Having the ability to stand throughout the day is a healthy component to every workplace.

And having great design will allow the company's culture and caliber of employees match their workspace.

With this type of office, video conferencing and visitors with vendors and clients will have a better first impression

Having the most up to date technology in the office workspace will match the cutting edge capabilities in the shop.

Your workspace needs to be designed by listening to your employee's needs -- they are a company's most important asset.
