Solomon Plumbing

New and Used Boost Form and Function

When NBS was commissioned for a redesign of Solomon Plumbing’s corporate offices, the challenge was twofold: create a space that reflects the organization’s brand—engaging, friendly and successful; and incorporate existing furniture into the new plan in fresh ways.

As a crucial first step in the process, NBS conducted programming services to gain user insight and gauge operational requirements. Instead of designing around an established layout, we created a radically different space plan that provides not just for current needs, but for future expansion as well. To maximize efficiency, NBS Construction Solutions provided construction documentation and management.

The new plan removed walls and raised the ceiling to create a more expansive, welcoming environment. NxtWall glass office fronts feature clean lines and can be easily reconfigured for a changing office environment. Materials and furnishings—including a number of existing desks and casegoods—are used to literally and visually differentiate interconnected work zones. One wall is covered in whiteboard paint for old school brainstorming with markers and erasers. For a memorable tribute, to the trade there are custom fixtures designed by NBS and fabricated by Solomon from industrial materials, such as the galvanized metal plumbing in overhead lighting.

Incorporating unique graphics helps to reinforce their brand. There’s a wall-size map to illustrate Solomon’s geographical reach, while an undulating blue soffit presents their sub-brands and service lines. Solomon is clearly positioned as capable and accomplished.

As in every other industry, the skilled trades are adapting to new technology and a changing workforce. For Solomon, their corporate office has become an important part of their overall business strategy with a wow factor that boosts employee satisfaction.
