New York, New York, USA
We worked hand in hand with Justworks, the fastest growing HR technology company in North America to overcome significant obstacles and deliver a world-class headquarters. Their new location at 55 Water in the financial district creates a destination for staff, embracing their culture, supporting their focus on community, and accommodating their rapid growth.
Employing our full methodology, we partnered with Justworks to help them achieve their workplace goals. From early visioning sessions with stakeholders, we learned their core values, a teamwork-oriented atmosphere, and room for flexibility and growth were some of the key variables needed for their space. Using our 3D modelling software, uniBIM, we were able to give Justworks full design visibility, even when changes were made throughout the project.
Using “neighbourhood” layouts for flexibility, our design team made sure each discipline had access to different workspace types needed for maximum productivity based on their role. Throughout the space, we created training rooms, customized collaboration zones and refuge areas to foster social gatherings, community and team building. A large townhall and cafés act as areas for both work and play. We linked floors through a custom-built staircase with symmetrical platformed multi-purpose areas, allowing staff to flow and connect easily between floors.
Through our integrated process, leveraging technology, and focusing on delivery excellence, our teams brought Justworks’ vision to life. They captured the hip look and feel of their original location in Chelsea, while highlighting their brand and culture throughout. Justworks has now more than double the space and we completed the project two weeks earlier than scheduled. The leadership team is thrilled with the space saying, “it looks like a playground.”
