The Transformative Workplace

Myriad factors are changing the look and function of the contemporary workplace: Evolving demographics. Thriving global markets. Ever-changing technologies. SmithGroupJJR has long been an industry leader in the evolution of the workplace, whether urban or suburban, pioneering or consolidating, new or repurposed. We understand how and where today's employees want to work, and how to translate those shifting behaviors into positive results for our clients.

It comes down to connection. All workplaces–speculative or custom-designed–must be equipped with cutting-edge technology fully adaptable to rapid innovation and changing client needs. Yet as technical

advancement untethers workers from a single workspace, their need for personal connection becomes stronger, too. Today's high performance workplace acknowledges this, with integrated environments that balance and foster collaboration, contemplation and social interaction.

These dynamics all come into play as we craft the optimal design solution that responds to our clients’ business drivers, translating their mission and vision into physical space. Whether creating or transforming a workspace, property, or community, SmithGroupJJR creates valuable workplace assets that are sophisticated, inspiring and sustainable, enhanced by the power of connection.
