Inspired by technology, this space connects people through light and color

Our confidential client retained Stantec Architecture to support the relocation and modernization of their flagship headquarters—setting workspace design standards for public works departments in other cities and provinces.

What began as a Workplace 2.0 endeavor transformed into an activity-based work (ABW) program that empowered 340 employees to choose their own workspace settings based on the nature of their tasks. Workstations had flexible storage and modern technology to support evolving staff needs. This fresh design approach focused on connection, functionality, transparency, and agility—providing adaptive, forward-thinking solutions. We also provided functional programming and implementation services, including utilization studies, staff surveys, and an IT audit to understand different workstyles—be it that of a thinker, connector, road warrior, or contributor. We prepared 3D renderings to help users visualize their new spaces and supported change management sessions.

The resulting open-plan workspace provides a dynamic, inclusive environment with designated areas for learning, focusing, and collaborating.
