Zurich had an overall goal to create a space that illustrated their global reach as well as being a reflection of their most valuable asset - their employees. They employed Cannon Design to conduct a three month study where they tested different office configurations, furniture, surfaces and work spaces with 150 of their employees before finalizing designs.

The new headquarters is expansive and will be home to 3,000 employees. The flooring choices are modern, fresh and reflect Zurich's global branding. Different flooring in work spaces and recreational spaces supports their mission to respond to their employees needs and preferences. This project was all about giving workers choices and employees responded well to being able to move from private to collaborative spaces as they pleased. We helped create separate spaces delineated by flooring & furniture changes within an open area.

Flooring Resources is proud to be part of a project that is both visually impressive and reflects a contemporary working environment.
