Creativity is the foundation for the work done at Community Works Design Group, a landscape architecture firm in Southern California. CWDG creates fun and innovative landscape designs for its surrounding communities. To keep the CWDG office the coolest space it can be they decided to put a MacroAir big commercial fan in their space which has inspired the staff to create some of their best work yet.
A Comfortable Office is a Productive Office
In an effort to inspire creativity the CWDG office is purposefully designed to feel homey and comfortable, it even has an indoor slide to ensure that the design group gets some childlike wonder out of their staff. So It’s safe to say that CWDG understands that an uncomfortable employee is not the most productive.
According to a NASA study on heat stress, when temperatures are over 80°, it has a negative effect on both the productivity and accuracy of work.
A Tale of Two Stories
The CWDG office is a 2-story building with workstations on the bottom floor and the top floor. The floors are not separated by a lot of space yet the feeling of temperature is very different from the bottom to the top. The challenge this presented to the staff was that one group of employees felt comfortable, while the other felt uncomfortable.
We’d like to make our office a little more uniform throughout the first and second floor, and these fans really help do that.” – Tim Maloney, President | Community Works Design Group
