  • Year 2020
  • Location Kansas City, Missouri, United States,
  • Industry Construction / Engineering,
  • Gould Evans designed a representative office space for Garney Construction located in Kansas City, Missouri.

    Garney is a contracting company that specializes in large-scale water infrastructure construction, so their space is designed to support their “boots on the ground” culture and draw inspiration from the concrete pipes that are at the heart of their business. Spaces include a central breakroom, flexible training rooms, tech-enabled meeting rooms, open office space, and “crash pads” for employees who need easy access to a place to rest between jobs.

    The most unique element of the new space is the transformation of three concrete water pipes into collaborative meeting booths. Each pipe weighs 18,000 pounds and houses cushioned seating for up to six people, a suspended butcherblock table, and interior lighting. The pipes are arranged playfully amongst informal seating near the front entry, highlighting the core of Garney’s business and communicating an office culture that combines gritty determination and a fun-loving passion for what they do.
