2019 IDIE Awards
On April 12, 2019, Office Environments attended the 13th biennial IDIE Awards. Office Environments won Best of Furniture Installation Small for Shipt Headquarters.
Shipt, an online grocery and shopping delivery service, established their headquarters in Birmingham, AL in the historic John Hand Building.
Herman Miller’s Renew Link desking systems proved to be the perfect match for the equally innovative and rapidly growing high-tech company. The flexibility of the desking system allows the furniture to keep up with the exponential growth of the company. We paired Herman Miller’s workstations with adaptive products from OFS and Global to meet both the productivity and ergonomic needs for each individual in the workspace.
A mixture of soft seating, lap top tables and occasional tables were used throughout the space to encourage and meet the collaborative needs of the employees as well as provide retreats for them to break away from their desks when needed. These lounge spaces were designed to accommodate both individuals doing heads down work as well as groups of people using them for casual meetings. Employees can also find respite in the fully stocked coffee bars and kitchens.
Conference rooms of various sizes were provided for more formal meeting spaces. Tables, in clean white finishes were outfitted with state-of-the-art power capabilities. Acoustical privacy needs within the conference rooms were met with custom, wall applied acoustic panels around custom glass boards.
The renovation and design by CCR Architecture and Interiors and furniture installation by Office Environments contributed to Shipt recently being named one of the “Coolest Office Spaces” in Birmingham.
