FSB is a nationally recognized architectural, engineering and planning firm whose mission is to provide thoughtful and creative solutions that result in quality projects for their clients. One of the factors contributing to their success is their commitment to also provide a thoughtful, inspirational and collaborative space for their staff to create such solutions.
Bentley Flooring was fortunate to get an inside view of their energizing environment when installing the new flooring for FSB's recent "refresh" of their Oklahoma City office on the 4th and 5th floors of the Paragon Building. Several large, high-tech conference rooms provide for the interchange of ideas, as well as open work spaces wrapped in continuous windows, letting in an abundance of light and allowing limitless space for imagining.
With this renovation, FSB's ability to collaborate is further strengthened by the addition of stand-up meeting stations and smaller traditional meeting rooms scattered throughout both floors. Each of these rooms and stations offers computer screens and all other wired technology needed for technical discussions, quick consultations or lengthier presentations. Throughout both floors, wall panels were lowered, some offices eliminated and employees within each discipline were gathered into their own distinct areas for easier communication.
We were also impressed by FSB's serene palate of grays, blacks and charcoal inset with bold, bright bands of colors interspersed throughout the carpeted workspace. Accent colors from these bands were applied to walls and columns in the open areas.
Even the 4th floor restrooms were updated and refreshed.
