Take a Look at ACL’s Modern Vancouver Office
ACL, a technology company that provides data analytics, governance, risk management, and compliance software, recently hired interior design firm SSDG to redesign their offices in Vancouver.
“From the project outset, the goal was to achieve a new workspace that visually and functionally aligned with the ACL corporate values and workstyles, providing an environment that supports & encourages staff to excel, and facilitates recruitment and retention. Employee engagement was a critical component of making this goal a reality. A team of department representatives dubbed the ‘Transformers’ was established to involve the staff and receive feedback on key design decisions throughout the project. A creative layering of two concepts was adopted: ‘Global Reach, Local Roots’ and ‘Heroes’. The first was an overarching concept that symbolized the local roots of ACL in Vancouver, Canada while acknowledging their growth into a global brand. The second was an internal idea that represented the heroic qualities that ACL and their staff try to emulate on a daily basis, both in the office and out in the community. The space pays tribute to local, global and fictional heroes, as well as a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement to famous and (occasionally) misunderstood anti-heroes”, says SSDG
