The Challenge Donco Electrical Construction LLC, a large electrical support service contractor in Edwardsville, IL was building a new headquarters building to allow for consolidation of all locations and make room for employment growth.

The decision was clear to either increase the square footage of the new building or re-think how they had their space for office furniture allocated to accommodate their growing needs without adding major construction cost to the project. To make those decisions, they needed a partner that could help them navigate the pros and cons of each option. Decreasing the foot print of each workspace while still attracting top talent, increasing workflow efficiency, and meeting the demands of tomorrow's workers was a delicate balance.
