BearingPoint, Inc. (formerly KPMG)
BearingPoint, Inc., a leading management consulting firm to Global 2000 companies, required well-designed, productive office spaces to set an example for their clients. The site selected contained a building still under construction with multiple tenants. While construction was ongoing, the design team carved out unused garage space to enlarge a ground floor reception area that features direct access to BearingPoint's offices through the back of two-sided elevators. This small detail increased BearingPoint’s exposure in the building without significantly increasing the budget.
Office space is conserved through the creation of permanent work spaces for administrative and support staff only, with consultants assigned spaces as they check in at the reception desk. A Client Solution Center was designed to serve as a presentation area for videoconferencing demonstrations and training. Work spaces can easily be reconfigured or converted to conference room space by quickly relocating walls in the modular design.
