The Jack Gotherman Café was designed to give employees a space away from the cubicle. Finishes and furnishings were used to create a more casual communal space that felt more warm and inviting. Using soft seating with highbacks allows for smaller groups to meet as well as a more comfortable space to relax.
The central bar height table provides a gathering spot for employees to meet and celebrate with a beer from the tap. Low tables were used to accommodate smaller groups as well as provide a flexible option when the space is being used for larger events. With the natural light and fun quirks the Jack Gotherman Café is the perfect space to retreat from the office or have a casual meeting with colleagues.
"The perfect space to relax and take a break or have a fun easy‐going meeting! We use this room as our go to spot for any presentations or group gatherings."
TRC & Spida faced the unique challenge of being two separate companies, each with their own branding and office needs, sharing a common space. Essentially two projects in one. For the typical workstation each wanted to stay similar to the other with an open plan that would allow for more communication and collaboration between teams.
Both companies were looking to grow and attract new hires so having flexible and height adjustable workspaces were a must. The solution was a power beam with a screen to allow some privacy, but also provides the ability to rearrange the space if needed for different types of work. To differentiate from one to the other each company chose a different set of finishes for their space to reflect their respective brands and teamed together to choose the finishes and amenities for the communal shared spaces.
Northwoods, a company specializing in Human Services Software Solutions, was looking for a clean open office space where they could work both individually and as a group. While facing a challenging timeline our team worked with them to provide a desking solution that met both their company needs and their occupation date. The open plan allows for many areas of collaboration with shared whiteboard dividing walls and lounge seating groups. The desking product provided enables flexibility in the workspace, so work can go from focused to collaborative with ease.

The Newark Fire Department aquired land for a new fire station to help resolve size, space and volume issues. Protecting the stations 50-year history of excellence along with their furniture and artifacts during the move was of the utmost importance. As one of the busiest fire stations in the state, planning for an efficient relocation was critical. Attending weekly build meetings for 6 months prior to the move helped to identify any potential issues.
Our project manager tracked all equipment and timelines on a spreadsheet so that every member of the team remained informed during the process. From moving a 5,400lb air compressor to taking apart a treadmill from top to bottom, we worked with project engineers and contractors to ensure the project stayed on target and within the timeline established.
"There were a lot of moving parts that needed to come together to make the Fire Station a successful project. I am most proud of the relationships we built with everyone from the Mayor and Fire Chief to all the contractors. It was this cooperation that allowed us to work together to keep the fire department operational from the planning stage until the final piece of furniture was put in place." - Gina Ruffner, Senior Project Manager
The updated look at the Hampton creates an inviting atmosphere for the guests. We completed a 7 phase, 4 floor renovation while guests were still staying in the hotel. Timing and communication were critical. We received/inventoried all FF&E, placed furniture according to drawings, installed headboards and nightstands into the walls. Placed all new mattresses, lighting and TV's. All product was received by Commercial Works warehouse personnel. Our project coordinator managed the inventory and studied the drawings to determine timing and placement. Working in conjunction with CWI's onsite project manager, our coordinator scheduled delivery and resource requirements for every phase. Each block of 20-22 rooms had a tight installation schedule of 2-3 days completion due to room reservations.
"As Project Manager for General Contracting Partners, it has been my pleasure to work with Commercial Works. The team members are exceptional communicators from the early stages of preparation till the final walk through. For me to be the go between for ownership groups and managers during construction projects, communication is imperative. Commercial Works understands the demands of working inside an occupied hotel." - Jenna Berri, Project Manager
The consolidation of Good Samaritan and Bethesda Hospital along with a $200M addition, required proper planning and coordination to insure patient safety and minimal business disruption. A move path was developed for each department and reviewed with all team members.

Biocryst wanted a smart office design that would attract and retain great talent, accommodate collaboration and facilitate mobility. Comfortable, mobile furniture with a contemporary design were two of the requirements.
Commercial Works and BioCryst worked together on custom colors, finishes and furniture that would create a fresh, open space. The Domo sofa with a writable whiteboard back panel and Speakeasy tables with whiteboard tops were unique design elements incorported to encourage team-based work.
"I can't say enough about the excellent relationship BioCryst Pharmaceuticals has established with Commercial Works. Since the beginning of association in 2007, right up to our recent office renovation in 2014/15 they have provided outstanding service, saving us thousands of dollars on furniture while facilitating seamless office relocations and other services. They are an excellent company and I highly recommend their service to anyone who asks." - Bobette Anderson, Executive Assistant
In business, while change is constant the details can be unpredictable. Relocating The Columbus Dispatch, from the newspaper’s home for 90 years, required an enormous amount of pre-move planning to ensure a smooth transition.
The Dispatch depended on our team to put a plan together that would minimize disruptions during working hours and keep their operations running throughout the project. A Commercial Works senior level designer and project manager were designated to work closely with the Director of Engineering/Maintenance Facilities for the Dispatch.
"It was a real pleasure to work with such a professional team, during our relocation of The Dispatch's Newsroom from one facility to another. Each time we hit an obstacle during the process the CW team was there offering solutions. This was a six week move in process and the CW team remained focused and professional during each move. I look forward to working with Commercial Works in the future." - Kevin George, Director of Engineering & Maintenance
Mister Quik, a heating, air conditioning, and home solutions provider, wanted to increase capacity and update to a more open, collaborative office style. Starting with floor plans, Commercial Works design team developed an open space plan and furniture recommendations that maximized the space. Once the style of furniture was selected, our Indianapolis Designer was able to assist the client with fabric and finish selections that met their vision. This comprehensive furniture project touched all areas of the facility. Commercial Works design team worked closely with the client to develop a color palete and select paint, carpet, trim, fabrics and finishes.
"I think everything looks great! Thanks for all of your help." - Brad Huff, President
Is your office dim and old-fashioned? That was the story of our corporate headquarters in Columbus, OH. The goal of our office remodel was to replace the dark and outdated workspace with a new, fresh and inviting look. Prior to remodel, our office had individual, isolated private offices. Now, we have an open collaborative and teaming environment with low workspace walls and a vibrant, colorful look.
Using AIS systems furniture and HPFi lounge seating, we were able to create a fun, collaborative environment with a modern/contemporary look. Our in-house design and furniture team managed the entire remodel from picking the carpet and paint to deciding where to place stations and tables.
"Commercial Works really stepped up their game with their office remodel. Not only is it a more upbeat place for employees to be every day, but it also doubles as a showroom for their current and potential customers. Their modern, contemporary look is exactly what customers are wanting today in their own offices." –Bob McCartney, AIS Territory Manager
