A new office in the Harrisburg area has huddle rooms, phones booths and a cafe.
Windward Engineers and Consultants will move into the new 7,148-square-foot office at 777 E. Park Drive in Lower Paxton Township. Windward is moving from its office on North Second Street in Harrisburg. And the new location isn’t just another old school office.
Nelson Worldwide provided interior design services while Windward was a security consultant, and lighting designer for the project, which was completed last month.
“When conceptualizing the new space, Windward expressed the importance of catering to its employees’ different work styles,” Winward and Nelson said in a press release. “The Nelson team prioritized the introduction of huddle rooms and phone booths that can also serve as personal office space. The large outdoor patio accessible through the multifunctional café provides opportunities for collaboration and socialization. It is also equipped with WiFi and the appropriate electrical connections for outdoor working.”
The new office includes a café, huddle rooms, a conference room, a wellness room, a lighting lab, print/copy space, flexible furniture and an outdoor patio.
The wellness lab offers a private place of respite for employees to step away from their desks during the day.
“The design team used Nelson’s Philadelphia office as inspiration for the sleek finishes to the flexible furniture, while embracing the Windward brand colors of white, grey, and blue throughout,” Winward said in a press release. “Subtle nods to the Harrisburg area are incorporated by naming the conference rooms after local neighborhoods and landmarks, such as Spring Creek and [the] Farm Show. Additionally, Windward named one of the huddle rooms ’114′ — paying homage to its previous office location at 114 North 2nd Street.”
Windward provides a variety of engineering and consulting services and has eight offices in six states.
