Zurich North America presented RMTA with a request to reinvent their national design, space utilization, and furniture standards. The goal was to facilitate a new way of doing business that would encourage collaboration and communication, while fostering more prudent management of their large real-estate portfolio.
The dynamic workplace RMTA created together with Zurich allows for a flexible, balanced and functional workspace that responds to the company’s business drivers and meets key business objectives. The space enables business growth and resilience by providing adaptability for changing business needs. The incorporation of collaborative spaces and flexible work areas into the new standards allows the office environment to function more appropriately with modern processes and the emerging mobile worker.
The design includes sustainable principles that have added real value to Zurich’s facilities. The newly designed spaces not only minimize the cost of rebuilding and reconfiguring but also reduce the need for it; the new brand standard is easily implemented nationally. Since the vetting of the pilot floor study, RMTA has been involved in the implementation of the standards in multiple locations across North America, totaling more than 300,000 square feet, including the executive and supplemental conference floors in the Schaumburg buildings. During this period, RMTA’s scope of services also has grown to incorporate full scope project management.
