New Office Designs and TI Construction


An interesting piece on Microsoft’s new “Touchdown Center” (or as I like to call them, Commuter Compassion Stations) appeared on the Seattle Times’ Tech Tracks blog.  This concept brings the broadband power and meeting space of the office a little closer to home for the large number of MS employees who live in Seattle, on the opposite side of Lake Washington from their Redmond corporate campus.

The center follows Microsoft’s “Workplace Advantage” interior design strategy, which can be summed up as less, more and a lot more (walls, space and technology, that is.) Looking through samples of this strategy I can’t help but think how this will change the game for those who make their living on Tenant Improvements. It certainly means the dry-wallers won’t be too pleased.  However, their loss is the LV electricians’ gain for sure.
