New municipal office redesign ticks all the boxes

When a growing municipality gets the go-ahead for a largescale office redesign, it’s a balancing act. On the one hand, these are legacy projects many years in the making. On the other, they’re disruptive, budget-driven endeavors. Quality, flexibility, aesthetics, speed and—with taxpayers footing the bill—price all come into play.

“So many municipalities go into a project not knowing what they need. We knew open concept wouldn’t work for us. If you just say ‘I want a desk’ and then base it on dollars, you’ll get a product that serves a function but not the one you want filled. Think about the people who will use it. It should optimize their work. It’s an investment in your staff and it’s going to be there for a long time.”

—  JEFF MENARD, CHIEF BUILDING OFFICER, TOWN OF WEST LINCOLN

“This was a close to $70,000 project and only a $5 knob was missing. That’s something you hope for with every project. I’d highly recommend Beatties for an application like this. They have the skill, the knowledge and ability to do what you need to do, from design to installation to post-sale service.”

— JEFF MENARD, CHIEF BUILDING OFFICER, TOWN OF WEST LINCOLN
