Workplace’s long-standing partnership with Collins Aerospace continued with the planning, design, and development of a new facility in their Kansas City market. Retained to first review and help understand programmatic needs, Workplace Architecture + Design worked with all departmental groups to understand local workflow, spatial needs, and culture that would be required to be instilled in the new facility’s design.
Serving as the project architect and design team lead, Workplace provided a work environment that balances collaboration and privacy, a fluid mix of work cafes and conference rooms (of all sizes) equally with individual phone rooms and breakaway spaces, all aspects of the research, development, and engineering process has a place in the new facility. Coupled with the assembly of a diverse engineering consulting team, Workplace and Collins Aerospace have designed a flagship Center of Excellence that will allow Collins Aerospace to further develop and strengthen their industry-leading aerospace technologies and market dominance in a sustainable, collaborative and progressive working environment.
