Workplace Interiors

Recent world events may be putting a new spotlight on how businesses view workplace environments — but that’s been our focus for years.

As technology enables new workplace strategies such as free addressing, hoteling, and working from anywhere, the concept of a common workplace and time is changing in many industries. ESD offers in-depth knowledge for companies, building owners, and building operators seeking to gain a competitive advantage where workplace influences their business performance. Great environments attract great tenants where a symbiotic relationship is established to help both owners and occupants to flourish.

Corporate Enterprise

Fortune 500 corporations, professional services firms, and start-up incubators seek to maximize the return from their investments allocated to their office space. We see the whole picture. We understand the views of tenants and work with building owners, operators, and architects to achieve great workplaces.

We Help Address Social and Environmental Goals

Our team of experts work as partners to help you better achieve these socially responsible goals for a better workplace and a better world.

High-Tech/Critical Environment

High-frequency trading, high-density customer service call center operations, emergency operations centers, logistics operations centers, and broadcast spaces are examples of workplaces requiring a greater emphasis on the integration of infrastructure systems within their space. The activities taking place are of a critical nature and the infrastructure is often integrated into furniture for productivity and flexibility.

Our high-tech workplace team understands the technology and infrastructure integration and interdependencies required for driving high-tech company scalability while providing resiliency, reliability, and flexibility for their office space.

Building Bridges

For every great workplace experience there is a great building owner/operator. Providing tenants with the fitness centers, inviting lobbies, skydecks, security systems, improved indoor air quality (IAQ), and other amenities can be a complex process. An improvement for one business could create a problem for another.

Our team of designers and engineers understand how various building systems interact. We help bridge the gap between occupant desires and building owner realities.

Testimonial Quotes
(ESD’S Project Manager) was very responsive and on top of it.

It was nice that he took our space plans and pointed out the potential problem areas before starting CD’s. Made things easier for us and he worked with us to problem solve which was very appreciated.
