Contemporary Workspace Supports Institutional Growth

To support growth within Thomas Jefferson University’s (TJU) Information Services and Technology, KSS created a dedicated and customized space for TJU’s new Electronic Health Records Team. The 30,000-square-foot space is designed to accommodate multiple user groups, accomplish many operational goals at once, and serve as a tool to attract and retain talent. 

An intensive visioning process resulted in clear goals for the project—to become a second home where people looked forward to spending time and to offer a balanced juxtaposition of closed and meeting spaces, team areas, and designated quiet areas. To execute this vision on a compressed seven-month schedule, KSS worked alongside the Jefferson team and Epic Consultancy to identify efficiencies and streamline processes. The resulting designs and specifications weave multi-disciplinary, open team areas with places for quiet, focused work within an airy, daylight space. Contemporary finishes and furniture provide a refreshing departure from traditional office spaces, evoking an aesthetic similar to a tech company. Specific program elements include a variety of conference and training rooms, huddle pods, touchdown hotel stations for consultants, a genius bar, and a café.
