Project Scope

Design: Recognizing a high level of intense training being completed at the facility, it was important for the design to include a color scheme that was fresh and engaging and for the furniture to support a variety of work modes. McWaters worked closely with the client and the design consultant to select furniture solutions that would be durable, comfortable and support the brand and culture of the client.  

Schedule: Project completed in 2013.
