Workspace of the Week - Energy Client Offices, Wroclaw

Workplace's client, a leader in the field of clean energy production, was seeking fresh solutions for their office post-pandemic. The client is a company operating in the energy sector, supplying electricity, gas, and heat to both homes and businesses. They proudly identify themselves as leaders in the field of clean energy, providing smart solutions for efficient resource utilization.

See how the new social area looks, which is located where the management used to be. Now, it’s the heart of the office. Also introduced were entirely new spaces like a relaxation room, a small exercise room, and a library.

Challenge and goals
The client decided to enlist Workplace's services again after eight years. The original office for the client, located in Wrocław, was built in 2015. The client returned post-pandemic, during a period when most employees had reorganized their work mode to remote. The newly designed space was intended to enable comfortable work for those who come to the office daily, as well as for those who visit the office several times a week or month.

The goal was to create a space that would be flexible, employee-friendly, and support a diversity of spatial typologies, while also considering the concept of ecology.

The project began with a detailed briefing and analysis of a report on the needs of the company’s employees and proposed changes in the office arrangement. Based on this information, the partnership proceeded to the spatial planning (space planning) phase.

Concurrently with the spatial planning work, Workplace were engaged in the office design, transforming guidelines and expectations into concrete visual and functional solutions. Subsequently, detailed technical drawings were prepared that became guidelines for the subsequent stages of the project implementation.

The next step was the design of custom furniture and the selection and organization of movable furniture. Throughout the duration of the project, continuous communication was maintained with the construction team, organizing weekly meetings and regular site visits to oversee the progress of the work with Workplace and the client. 

When the construction work was well underway, at the client’s request, Workplace also expanded their range of services to include support in change management by organizing workshops with employees, aimed at preparing them to function in the new environment.

Additionally, at the client’s request, the realization of a greenery planting workshop was realized, which was conducted by the designated contractor selected through a competition. All these actions were aimed at ensuring the smooth implementation of the project and maximum client satisfaction with the final outcome.
