We are celebrating a wonderful year of transforming workplaces and having fun while doing it in the Workplace Studio! We engaged, created, and inspired teams through developing unique solutions and dreaming courageously. Scroll to the bottom to hear what our Workplace Market Leader, Lauren Elliott has to share about this year at DC!



Oaklawn Psychiatric Center

Oaklawn Psychiatric provides mental health and additional treatment to those in need. Their expanding existing department was in need of additional space for offices, training centers staff, clients, and more. The new space created for Oaklawn was designed to be open and welcoming for clients, inviting for new hires, and have a distinct separation between client and employee spaces.

The new facility will house a variety of expanded spaces. New rooms include a large main reception and waiting area, medical services, a variety of large and small group rooms, additional departments, executive team space, a new training center, and a pharmacy. Providing a workspace for the staff will allow them to work efficiently and effectively to serve their clients. Centralized training spaces will bring departments together as they frequently share materials.
