Maintaining collaboration in large offices - A case study

Accela, a distributor of a leading engagement platform that powers thousands of services and millions of transactions daily for public agencies worldwide, found itself in need of more space to accommodate its growing staff. When a floor became available in its building, the firm seized the opportunity to create a more open, collaborative environment that delicately balanced the youthful energy it sought along with the professional atmosphere its location commanded.

The Knoll team in San Francisco made it happen by providing a solution that promotes collaboration. See how in the following case study:
