  • Contract Workplaces transformed DuPont‘s existing offices into a collaborative workspace located in Bogotá, Colombia.

    The construction work at DuPont Colombia posed a great challenge for Contract Workplaces, as it involved redesigning a space that had so far reflected a 100% traditional and conservative work model, with many closed offices and a strong distinction of hierarchical positions. Furthermore, the space did not include collaborative areas devoted to interaction and relaxation.

    Therefore, in these new offices, a dynamic and open design was presented, generating areas for group collaboration, as well as private work spaces intended for those tasks requiring more concentration. The 1,125 m2 floor space now accommodates 102 workstations, two hot desks for six persons each, grandstands for trainings or multimedia meetings with other branches, four conventional meeting rooms automated with state-of-the-art videoconference and projection technologies, a relaxation room which can also be used to hold recreational activities, a medical office, a breastfeeding room and the canteen, which can also be used for informal meetings.

    The new design thus achieved the perfect transition from a conservative work model to one adapted to current working trends with an elegant, modern and timeless design. This renovation, in turn, reflects the corporate image of a company which, after 216 years of history, is transforming to adapt to the new times.
