Studio Forma, a leading interior design firm, was commissioned to redesign the office space of Powell Contracting, a renowned name in the road construction industry. The previous office layout was highly compartmentalized, consisting of a maze of desks and offices that impeded communication and collaboration.

To address these challenges, Studio Forma implemented an open concept design with new workstations that feature partitions to provide privacy when needed. Acoustic solutions were also strategically placed to ensure that the new open concept still provided adequate workspace for employees.

Private meeting rooms were added, as well as breakout areas for more spontaneous meetings and collaborations. These additions help to encourage more collaboration and creativity among team members.

To pay homage to Powell Contracting’s industry-leading reputation, the interior design features concrete and rebar partitions to section off work areas in a fun and interesting way. The lunch room features a graphic feature wall created using a map of Toronto, while the stairwell features a road-sign-like design with yellow and black stripes, reflecting Powell’s long tradition of quality road work. These elements, along with the company’s brand colors, tie the design together seamlessly.

Overall, the new office design created by Studio Forma for Powell Contracting is functional, collaborative, and visually stunning. It truly reflects the company’s industry-leading reputation and provides an inviting space for employees to work and collaborate.
