Veritiv’s office design creates an opportunity for the company to communicate its new brand and vision to customers and employees by creating a unique work environment for both executives and top management. The packaging company, which formed as a result of the merger of xpedx and Unisource Worldwide, relocated its headquarters to Sandy Springs, GA. Veritiv hired Turner & Townsend Heery to help with the interior design for its new office.
The materials used in the design strike a balance between the company’s history and its future. Warm colors and rich woods reflect the stability and longevity of the parent corporate entities while glass walls, modern lighting, and an angular geometry speak to Veritiv’s new direction. The client desired a traditional office arrangement providing privacy for executives supported by alternative work venues allowing opportunities for executives and staff to engage in more open, less formal settings. Break rooms and alcoves punctuate the space and are designed to be informal meeting areas.
The project also involved interior design of the reception area, executive board room, huddle rooms, phone rooms, and meeting rooms and café as well as alternative work venues, offices, and workstations for Veritiv’s Finance, Operations, IT and Human Resources divisions.
The new space accommodates approximately 150 people on three floors.
