As commercial interior designers, r.o.i. Design has designed and oversaw the remodeling of many offices and workplaces. Very seldom do we take the time, effort, or expense to improve our own work environment. But finally, we decided to make some major changes to our office at 1451 Front Ave. NW.
Our process and planning began a couple of years ago. We had recently hired two new team members, and both were working from makeshift stations. We started to work with West Michigan Office Interiors for some of our clients’ projects and began a conversation about our own office. We designed a new office layout in collaboration with them and began the process of getting the remodel underway.
Then COVID hit… Obviously, that put a pause on the whole project. Despite the shutdowns and work-from-home scenarios, r.o.i. Design remained busy throughout the pandemic and finished 2020 strongly. So, in the summer of 2021, we resumed the remodeling.
In mid-August, we moved all our workstations and offices to a temporary space in the front of our building. Painters were in our space giving the walls and ceilings a fresh coat of paint. Then, the flooring installers laid all new carpeting with assorted colors and patterns for defined work areas. Finally, the furniture installers brought in all new office systems. Our IT team reconnected our computers and servers with minimal downtime.
We’re so excited for a better place to work, collaborate, meet, and serve our clients.
Stay tuned for more photos and updates as everything gets finished and we’re more settled in.
