Mainly known for firearms, Remington has recently expanded into the men’s clothing business. Remington Outdoor Company is headquartered in Madison, North Carolina, and was founded in 1816, which makes it the nation's oldest continuously operating manufacturer. The Remington Family of Companies has 23 locations across 14 states, employs over 4,200 people and distributes its products throughout the U.S. and in over 55 foreign countries.
The Atlantic Group was given the challenge to create an open working environment in a temporary office space that allows employees to collaborate when necessary. Remington also needed a high-end boardroom and meeting space for employee and client meetings. The Remington building is 13,500 square feet and 35 people currently work at this location in Connecticut.
The Atlantic Group met the challenge with Stride workstations and Geiger private offices, which are functional product solutions that also enhance the design. The boardroom features a Live Edge conference table, which gives the room a rugged, yet sophisticated look.
The Atlantic Group’s Project Manager Lieza Bradshaw explains, “The design intent was to give the space a very masculine look using neutral fabrics and leathers, while also designing a large lounge area with a bar that makes you feel like you’re sitting in a hunting lodge out West. We arranged custom woodwork from Woodtech, which ties everything together.”
Although this was a temporary location in Connecticut, which allowed employees to travel back and forth to Stamford when needed for the last year, employee morale went up due to the open working environment. Employees also appreciated how easy it was to meet with and entertain clients in the “living room” space that was created in the large lounge area.
