Tooling Up for Growth
When Michigan Pneumatic Tool (MPT) decided to create a new corporate headquarters, an important objective was to create a state-of-the-art workspace that properly reflected the company’s dynamic culture. High on their priorities list was a workspace that supports organic collaboration. To accomplish this, we engaged all of our NBS divisions to provide an integrated work environment (architectural systems + flooring + furniture + technology). The result: flexible spaces that support evolving work styles.
The imperative for flexible spaces was carried through to the conference and training room. In here, an operable wall easily reconfigures a large space. When it’s open, the space can host inter-departmental meetings or training sessions. Close it and you create a traditional conference room fully equipped with presentation and communication technologies.
The typical lunchroom has been replaced with multi-functional break rooms. Now these spaces can be used throughout the day for casual meetings. MPT recognized the importance of a workspace that attracts the best talent and keeps them engaged. Vice president Bob Arthur noted, “Our vision was to provide an environment commensurate with the quality of our staff. The NBS team made our vision a reality. We’re proud of this space.”
The 75,000 sq. ft. office/warehouse complex required a total renovation. Given the project scope, it was an excellent match for our integrated services. First, our space planners developed a functional, flexible floorplan. Next, NBS Construction Solutions provided build-out services. NBS Floorcovering Solutions worked concurrently with our interior designers to incorporate practical floorcoverings into a variety of areas. Communication and networking systems were designed and installed by NBS Audiovisual Solutions to support MPT’s goals for collaboration, training and presentations.
When it comes to power tools, performance and functionality are critical measures of quality. Naturally, those are the same principles we adhered to in creating the MPT corporate offices.
