Project Description:

Ovation Benefit’s goal for this relocation project was to improve communication and collaboration between all team members of this fifty-person organization.  Their previous location was a composition of enclosed offices and conference rooms devoid of open space.  After a number of benchmarking visits, the decision was made that there would be no enclosed offices in the new office environment.  The partners were willing to “walk the walk” by including themselves in the open office landscape.  A variety of different sized conference rooms were provided for individual and group work which required a higher degree of acoustic privacy.  A large training room was included in the program to accommodate classes for their clients.  There is a fun Network Café space that provides an alternative to the traditional office environment for either a meal or a quick meeting.  A full Sound Masking System is used to enhance the acoustic privacy of the open office environment.  CHK also provided move management services that culminated in Ovation’s move over one three-day weekend.

Program areas include reception, conference rooms, training rooms, presentation rooms, server rooms, restrooms, kitchen, café and open office.
