– Sunset Hills, Missouri –
Founded in May 2010, DriveCentric, as a company, strives to use rapidly evolving technology to deliver a cutting-edge suite of products to car dealerships. Using modern tools to connect with customers, DriveCentric wanted a space to fit their business goals. The client purchased a 29,000 square foot building in Sunset Hills, MO just off I-270 along MO-30. The original building was an old Vatterott College with many classrooms equipped for teaching everything from CAD to Cosmetology. The previous layout lacked a logical flow for an office space and daylighting was limited throughout.
The office features a new atrium with a 2-story green wall where company-wide townhall meetings breathe culture into the space. Technology was integrated into this space with a large LED screen set into the AV/Presentation wall. Other areas include semi-open workstation “pods”, a café with a cigar lounge vibe, a techy break room, a “cave-like” branded corridor, multiple collaborative spaces, and individual offices. Plants and greenery are sprinkled throughout the building to promote employee wellness. The interior design aesthetic is industrial and techy, yet warm and inviting!
The project team consisted of G&W Engineering (MEP Engineer), JP Acoustics (Acoustic Consultant), Rapids Foodservice Contract and Design Co. (Commercial Kitchen Consultant), Larson Engineering (Structural Engineer) and Lighting Associates (Lighting Coordination). The general contractor was Diestelkamp, LLC. DriveCentric coordinated directly with ColorArt for furniture and CTI for AV solutions.
