Innovative and Transformative Space
BioVid is the endurance racer of the pharmaceutical marking industry—a consulting company that broke through the wall of the 2008 recession by re-investing itself to serve its customers. Their existing offices were isolated and empty. Looking to relocate, the team found what they needed—a historic, 19th century mill building in the Canal Works district of Bristol, PA, with great potential. KSS’s design capitalizes on the depth of heritage of the space, articulating street art as contemporary focal points. To give voice to BioVid’s cutting-edge approach to adding value for their clients, KSS applied a series of design ideas to the renovation:
Innovation. Open plan seating punctuated with private meeting rooms maximizes opportunities for spontaneous collaboration while providing areas for more quiet, formal conversation.
Engagement. The break room is the center of the action, with a handmade 1940s shuffleboard table (used daily for lunchtime tournaments) and teambuilding spaces for activities like cooking classes.
Wellness. The Quiet Car is an alternative, “headsdown” workspace that eases the transition to the open plan. The Quiet Car is a no-phone zone, and is also home to the company-wide yoga program.
Transformation. A reclaimed set of bleachers serves as a gathering space for town halls and trainings, emphasizing BioVid’s commitment to employee development.
Overall, the new BioVid space is an expression of the company’s capacity to be both analytical and creative—an exceptionally crafted space that empowers employees to perform.
