  • Stantec has completed the redesign of the Digital Interactive Group offices at ICF International‘s headquarters located in Fairfax, Virginia.

    To address a new, changing ICF culture and demographic, the Digital Interactive Group offices at ICF’s Headquarters were redesigned to address the client’s modern, collaborative workstyles, their focus on technology, and the “youth influence” permeating their workplace. The overarching design concept for the ICF Digital Interactive space can be captured in one word: CONNECTIVITY; person to person, group to group, customer to group, customer to product, systems and technology to all, all to ICF. These connections are best accomplished organically, not forced.

    The new design provides a flexible, open, agile environment where connections can be made around any corner, within any area and at any time. It is a space where clients can participate and connect with ICF staff as well as touch, see and feel the cutting edge technology and solutions that ICF is known for. Interactive multi-purpose presentation and demo areas provide a showcase for demonstrating technology to clients. Enclosed workstations with bench seating, inspired by ICF’s London office, provide areas for brainstorming sessions. A new, open look allows staff and clients to participate and interact in new ways, through workshops and feasibility testing, for example, and with open spaces that provide opportunities for impromptu collaboration and conversations. The new design accommodates differing work styles by providing alternative work settings to accomplish these tasks. It provides choices; choices that satisfy generational, demographic and work style differences. The proposed work environment will provide ICF the opportunity for a different level of marketing opportunities where connections are made and relationships nurtured.
