W.W. Grainger, Inc.
in collaboration with The Environments Group
Lake Forest, Illinois
Grainger is a national industrial supplier with satellite offices throughout Illinois. To increase efficiency, flexibility and productivity, they decided to consolidate their offices into one location and redefine their company culture. The new headquarters consisted of two buildings totaling more than 800,000 square feet.
Grainger hired The Environments Group as the interior architect for the new headquarters and to provide a master plan concept for future growth. The design strategy for the new workplace was to minimize enclosed private offices and provide open workstations for flexibility and efficiency.
