United Kingdom Building, Vancouver
RAM’s old office space was unprepared for company expansion. It needed a new space that comfortably accommodated a workforce with the potential to grow by double, if not more. It sought a renovation that would keep its workers at the foremost on its list of priorities.
Allowing for both exponential growth and employee well-being
Aura handled RAM’s needs for rapid expansion and a worker-friendly environment in overlapping ways. Dedicated lounge areas not only added to the office’s footprint but were situated and arranged in ways that would encourage accessible communication and socialization between staff members. Unobtrusive but accessible placement of furnishings like couches and foosball tables erased the line between traditional meeting rooms and more relaxed social spaces. The wide variety of seating, desks, and tables gave off an uncluttered, versatile sense that work could be done just about anywhere in the office. With its myriad teams consolidated into the same space, the company’s ability to facilitate more accessible and broader communication between different groups has bolstered its workplace’s focus on collaborative empowerment. The lively, attractive new decor underscores RAM’s commitment to giving employees a welcoming workplace.
