This Austin builder is changing company culture one design at a time

No other industry has undergone such a dramatic change in the past year as corporate office space.

Remote work is here to stay, but so is the office. The notion of working anytime, anywhere is no longer seen as a benefit, but is now a fairly common policy. However, a key factor in making the new hybrid workspace actually work is in the design and construction.

As a design-driven commercial construction company, Construction concepts works with top designers and architects to bring their design to life.

“Our goal is to create a corporate office space that is as inspired as the people who work there,” said Joshua Weisman, CEO of Construction Concepts. “We like to say to designers and architects: if you can dream it, we can build it.”

Below is an overview of some of the key trends on the horizon and how to meet the design and construction needs of today’s workplaces.

Commercial design
The Resimercial design blends residential and commercial elements, incorporating features that were traditionally considered more residential.

“The way people work is changing,” Weisman says. “Everyone knows about the technology business model for creative, equipment-laden workplaces, but now we’re seeing law firms, accounting offices and construction companies recognizing the value of a place to work. more creative work. It’s an important part of your company culture and if you don’t implement it already, you’re behind.”

Work quarters
For so many years corporate offices have embraced the large open floor plan. We are now seeing a more flexible layout that creates smaller spaces, allowing employees to collaborate while enjoying their own space. This not only allows for better social distancing and easily reconfigurable spaces, but also creates the privacy needed for video conferencing.

The new conference room
The traditional long meeting table and leather chairs are out. Large video screens, cameras, microphones, and new technologies that interface with remote employees are all the rage.

Equally important is the evolution of conference room uses. Individual departments can come together without cramming into a small office or cubicle, and conversely, some companies want to eliminate it altogether in favor of multiple smaller spaces.

“Every business has unique office needs,” says Mark Bordman, COO of Construction Concepts. “Businesses are evolving to be more mindful as people return to the office, so creating a workspace that values ​​the importance of human connection and allows for adaptability and flexibility is now the new norm. It It’s important that company culture is at the center of any design and construction site.”

While the emphasis on returning to the office will be different for every industry, a universal demand from employees and employers is for goal-oriented workplaces. Ensuring your design, construction and budget are a top priority. By partnering with an experienced contractor who can help you mitigate problems before they arise, you’ll save time and money.
