The days of cubicles and private office spaces are numbered. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than one-in-three American employees are Millennials. They want a more flexible and creative workplace.  Employers also want to create a work place where employees can be more creative and collaborative, allowing companies to attract top talent. One of the ways you, as an employer, can create this space for your employees is by installing the DIRTT Wall. A DIRTT Wall is a pre-engineered and pre-manufactured wall that gives companies and employees incredible flexibility and function. It is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Microsoft is already one-step ahead. In 2017, Microsoft decided to move its space from Southfield to Detroit. The new Microsoft Office spaces are everything the new generation of employees want and more!

Ideal Contracting worked with American Interiors to install the DIRTT wall systems, with the design created by Neumann/Smith Architecture. This project was divided into phases with specific deadlines for each phase. Ideal Contracting managed these constraints by increasing the manpower and working double shifts to ensure the project was completed on schedule. Material deliveries were also managed closely to ensure that there were no interruptions to traffic. This project was not like other open office designs. Majority of the rooms were constructed from prefabricated wall systems with many different high-end materials. The project emphasized the limits of prefabrication wall systems and transformed Microsoft’s space into a modern and futuristic open office.
