Hewlett-Packard’s decision to organize its resources between two sects – Incorporated and Enterprise – left the HP Inc. Houston campus with an opportunity to make a name for itself.
This began with a vision for an open floor plan: giving employees the opportunity to dance with flexibility and play in the workplace by making room for every-day inspiration and encouraging innovation. Senior Program Manager of HP, Don Miller, explained a key in their ergonomic objective, “Acoustics was a big issue for us, and we addressed that everywhere.”
Workspaces now range from casual lounge settings, open office desks, dining room tables, and private meeting rooms where focus can remain on the task at hand for HP employees – despite an energetic environment bustling throughout. This is thanks to the implementation of the Hunter Douglas Hanging Baffle System. In coordination with flooring designs, the suspended ceiling tiles merge into the flow of the space creating a seamless and fresh appearance while crucially delivering acoustic insulation. Acousti’s main role in accomplishing this feat spanned six months throughout 2018 making the most of our client’s time, simultaneously working across nine floors in two buildings. By project completion we installed over 111,000 combined sq ft of Armstrong grid systems utilizing Armstrong Optima tiles, Armstrong Sound Scape Shapes, and Fizfelt Hanging Baffles.
Here at Acousti, we pride ourselves in the successes accomplished in this project through collaborating with PDR Architectural Firm; Knowing that our high-profile client’s goals were distinctly met with functionality and style while managing smoothly within a speedy time frame.
