Project Description:

Headquartered in Avon, CT, TriPoint Performance Based Insurance has an array of middle-market clients ranging in size from 25 to 8,000 employees; with a particular emphasis on large workers-compensation exposures and performance-based insurance.  TriPoint engaged CHK to renovate an existing brownstone manufacturing building space into sophisticated, modern offices.  In the process, CHK helped TriPoint transition from a culture of closed, private offices to one of open, collaborative workspaces.  This cultural shift was also designed to attract new employees, and appeal to existing and new clients.

Because the client’s existing building sold more quickly than anticipated, the project schedule was accelerated.  CHK’s design staff led “benchmarking tours” during which TriPoint management observed various modular furniture systems, floor and wall finishes, and gave their feedback to the CHK Design Team.    Through the process of competitive bidding and “bid leveling”, CHK brought value to the client as they purchased modern, innovative workstations.  TriPoint sought a flexible layout incorporating individual and co-located workstations, as well as team and group spaces.
