ENVISIONING MODERN OFFICE INTERIOR DESIGN SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY TYPE OF SPACE
Contra Costa College is a public community college that has been offering students a quality education since 1949. The College equitably commits its resources using inclusive and integrated decision-making processes to foster a transformational, educational experience and provide responsive student services that ensure institutional excellence and effective student learning.
The Interior Motions team and architects of Noll & Tam worked very closely with the college to create an office interior design that was vibrant, efficient, and inspiring for the college’s students and staff. The project included private faculty and executive offices and redesigning classrooms, collaborative lounge spaces, and cafés for students.
The Interior Motions team came onboard this project midway through the bidding process. Our team rolled up our sleeves, got caught up on where the project was at, and took it from there. We responded to the bid on time, provided mockups of furniture and won the bid.
We partnered with one of our preferred manufacturers, Herman Miller, to make sure that Contra Costa College would have quality furniture that would last for years to come. We created CAD drawings, look books, and 3D renderings that showcased how our proposed furniture solutions would look on campus. Then we met with each individual user group and allowed each staff member to pick which task chair they wanted. A project of this scope involved copious note-taking on all requests and outcomes, and our team successfully managed every little detail. It was rewarding to see this project through from a successful bid to a happy client.
The newly renovated Fireside Hall now serves as a beautiful building with durable furniture protected by a great warranty. The spaces within encompass a multitude of distinctive needs, with the fine dining space for the culinary school serving as the crowning achievement—a unique indoor/outdoor venue. It was a pleasure working with both Noll & Tam and the Contra Costa College team members.
CCC ALUMNUS AND RETIRED STATE LEGISLATOR, ROBERT CAMPBELL, REMARKED:
When I came to CCC in 1956, we had two Quonset huts. In those huts, we had drama class, woodshop, and a place to eat. Have you ever tried to eat in a woodshop? You are fortunate to be here today.
