As 1901 Group’s service operations center tripled in size and moved to new 11,000 SF suite in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Park; we seized the opportunity to create a new work environment showcasing their unique brand and delivery model. Inspired by assembly line methodology, 1901 Group applies the same concepts of repeatable process yielding greater output to the management of technology. An open lobby and employee café welcome guests and create a Town Hall atmosphere for corporate meetings, events and happy hours. The town hall is flanked by 1901 Group’s corporate offices and network control center. A viewing window and secure mantrap offer visitors a glimpse into the secure network control center. The open floor plan design relies on customized furniture groupings and AV tools to create a range of service centers for the engineers’ collaborative work requirements. Exposed metal ceilings, colorful lighting, stained concrete floors and dramatic accent colors embody the company’s progressive, energetic and technology focused brand.
