  • Stantec used the brand identity of GrubHub to create a functional and professional environment for their offices in Boston, Massachusetts.

    Drawing inspiration from its historic Boston location, Grubhub’s reimagined office creates an inspiring space for employees. As the leading online and mobile food ordering and delivery marketplace in the U.S., Grubhub wanted to bring its recognizable brand to life while providing a high-performance workplace.

    The design of this new 77,000-square-foot space merged Boston heritage and urban sophistication with the dynamic and energizing Grubhub brand. The design team combined worn wood referencing the aged structures of the famous Boston harbors, historical New England brick, and dark natural steel that formed the backdrop to high performance and unique workplace environments.

    Great care was taken to develop and locate the perfect proportion of spaces for focus, collaboration, learning, rejuvenation, and socializing, creating a fun, branded, and technologically forward workplace experience. The challenging long, narrow, and curved footprint of the building meant the team needed to ensure a democratic yet unique design approach among the departments and their locations, ensuring all users experienced the Grubhub brand and culture.

    The spaces foster group activities, team building, company-wide celebrations of local Boston food culture, and supports immersive training for current and new Grubhub team members. The brand is unmistakably recognized and consistently experienced through the holistic design of the project.
