The OG&E "Innovation Zone" facilitates creativity and information-sharing among the 200 people who work there. Flexible workstations with plug-and-play technology encourage collaboration while reducing the amount of space each employee needs. Open areas are balanced with more private spaces for those focusing on customer service calls or intense programming tasks. Burns & McDonnell performed architecture, interior design, engineering and construction services for this 48,000-square-foot space. The team exposed the building’s ceiling structure, creating a raw, technical quality further developed via pixelated geometric shapes in furniture and patterns. Contrasting with the stark gray concrete, bold accent finishes identify each department, providing character that coordinates with OG&E’s brand and signature colors.
