Every great brand – especially yours – begins with a well designed workspace. A thoughtful design approach is more than just an investment in your space, it’s an investment in your staff and your customers. SOLID understands this, and we’re committed to maintaining the beauty of your built environment.
Design is powerful; it can transform your company into a global player. When designing a facility or workspace, or picking out products, consider a maintenance/care plan from the very beginning. Smart facility managers (FMs) are ahead of the curve by budgeting to preserve appearance while providing a healthy and safe environment. Having a plan in place protects your investment and cares for the high quality materials that represent your vision, values, and tastes.
Design and Maintenance Planning
SOLID is a partner from the start and can consult on phases from planning, to design and post-construction. To gain perspective on what FMs are looking for, we took a glimpse at some recent articles in the Facilities Management Journal referencing design and the workplace:
From Creating a Decisively Unconventional Workplace – “Quality does not have to be expensive to be effective, but it must be the guiding principle when choosing team members and when evaluating products.” We agree. Inclusive design should embrace inclusive care for the space – from call center to C-suite. Preserving quality products is key to the long term health of your space and budget. SOLID can bring innovative approaches to provide a healthy and productive workspace for everyone on your team.
Environmental Health and Safety
From Taking Care of Comfort – “…environmental health and safety should be more than standard operating procedure; it should always be in the forefront of an FM’s consciousness.” Again, we agree and appreciate cleanliness being a part of the article. Grout is often a chosen substrate in the kitchens and bathrooms that are mentioned. Here are some ways SOLID can help with grout. As your space reflects the essence of the health of your brand and facility, an overall maintenance/care plan should be established for the general wellbeing and productivity of staff as well as customers.
From The State of the Open Office – Embarking upon an open office plan may influence the frequency and type of maintenance required to accommodate new design aesthetics and functionality of your space. In addition to consulting HR and the C-suite, part of your budget will be allotted for maintaining the space. Consulting with your vendor-partners will provide additional support for the project and a more accurate representation of the budgetary consideration.
Open Office Environments
SOLID’s services can help eliminate one of the expressed concerns about an open office environment: germs and cleanliness. Keeping a well preserved and clean space can eliminate those fears. From hard surfaces to surroundings and sleek timeless materials, SOLID can create a clean, fresh, welcoming environment for your customers, your team, and your brand.
Good design and quality materials not only reflect your vision and values, they’re the first thing your customers notice about you, and they can fill your employees with pride. These things are built to last – and SOLID’s guaranteed surface care, cleaning and maintenance plan is committed to preserving their beauty. Protect your investment by entrusting its care to our team of innovative, highly skilled craftsmen and technicians.
Preserving Workplace Design Aesthetics with a Consolidated Care Plan
