Goal

Giving CHB client the power to reimagine their spaces and expand their design horizons, giving their spaces voice that speaks to their employees, their clients and the world around them.

Achievement

CHB has provided expanded design options, allowing clients to create a wide range of breakthrough strategies that turn glass and solid walls into innovative platforms that convey corporate cultures and exciting work spaces.

Scope

When battery manufacturer Duracell moved into its new offices at 180 Madison Street in Chicago there was certainly the potential for creating an innovative work space spanning more than 20,000 square feet.

Goal

With thousands of square feet of windows, this work environment was appealing because of the natural light that streamed through the offices. But with all of these windows came a lack of privacy for the individual offices and conference rooms. This posed a design challenge.

Achievement

CHB’s staff of designers and installers worked closely with the firm’s architectural firm which developed a concept for window films that would incorporate Duracell’s “wave” logo on the thousands of square feet of interior windows. CHB took it from there, designing and then applying graphic film on the glass that features Duracell’s logo while providing privacy while still taking advantage of the natural lighting. Today, the office reflects contemporary design, comfortable lighting and branding for this nationally known firm.

ANSI TURNS TO CHB FOR FILM SOLUTION, SHOWCASING HISTORY

Scope

With a rich history spanning a century, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) wanted its new headquarters to make a statement reflecting its Mission: “To enhance both the global competitiveness of U.S. business and the U.S. quality of life by promoting and facilitating voluntary consensus standards and conformity assessment systems, and safeguarding their integrity.”

Goal

As the organization began renovating its New York offices, it turned to CHB Industries for ideas to transform a long, featureless corridor into a visual display to showcase this history.

Achievement

Collaborating with design partner, TPG, CHB created a museum-like graphic display, featuring the organization’s brand development, enhanced employee morale, and historic accomplishments. The result was impressive, featuring a 40-foot long floor-to-ceiling graphic illustrating the organization’s long-running history, decade by decade, using vintage photographs and waterjet aluminum letters. CHB’s success will serve as a benchmark to creating similar displays at ANSI’s offices throughout the United States.
