"Working on this project has been a great experience for McWaters," said Whitney McMakin, McWaters' Director of Design. "Not only has it given us a chance to work with some fantastic industry partners, it was also a way we could help support the United Way of the Midlands and everything they do for our community."
The McWaters team and their partners worked together to convert and renovate a series of three old buildings into a unified space to serve as the new headquarters for the United Way of the Midlands. The challenges included addressing the lack of natural light within the new space, creating spaces that supported individual work while also fostering collaboration between different departments, and designing a space that would serve the needs of the community.
"The partnership between McWaters, 1x1 Design, and LCK has been great," said Mac Bennett, CEO at United Way. "McWaters has a knowledgeable, friendly staff and everyone worked well as a team."
