  • Industry Hardware / Software Development,
  • Baskervill has designed the new offices of software vendor and manufacturer AvePoint, located in Richmond, Virginia.

    Faced with an extremely tight schedule, the project – from initial design meeting to client move in- was completed in only 3 months. To meet the schedule, extremely detailed planning and coordination from all parties was required. The design team allotted 2 weeks for design coordination and documentation, 3 weeks for building permits and ten weeks for construction and furniture installation.

    The scope of work included a full demolition of the existing interiors of an entire 14,000-SF floor of Riverfront Plaza’s West Tower. Walls, doors and casework were all rebuilt and the original concrete floors were resealed and left exposed. The space features floor-to-ceiling windows providing tons of natural light and scenic river views that can be seen from any vantage in the office.

    The space’s open floor plan is ideal for out-of-the-box communication and collaboration. Open work stations are surrounded by a mix of private conference rooms, open collaboration spaces and offices enclosed in glass. Colorful built-in storage units, adaptive lighting and a live moss wall add depth and whimsy to the space. Custom art by a local mural artist has become a focal point of the design and the perfect accompaniment to the office’s new “fun zone.” Complete with gaming systems, bean bag chairs, Ping-Pong, a basketball court and space for office yoga, the zone complements AvePoint’s “work hard, play hard” culture.

    The resulting design, completed in 2016, is contemporary and modern while maintaining the tech firm’s youthful yet down-to-business style.
