XPO Logistics is a non-asset based, third-party logistics provider of freight transportation services that uses a network of relationships with ground, sea and air carriers to find the best transportation solution for its customers.
XPO engaged EWP Architects to provide the architectural and design solutions for its Chicago office. With the rapid growth of XPO logistics; the need for a strong technology infrastructure and a sustainable workspace were blended together with a cost effective approach. The concept was to create a modern environment where communication and productivity were encouraged.
The benching furniture system was an ideal solution that provided communication for team members and an effective solution to the usable square footage to employee ratio. The conference, break, and ancillary areas provide convenient spaces for teams to gather for informal meetings. The entire space was designed to let natural light in as well as provide for great views of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan.
