“Leveraging the McCoy Rockford showroom and library, we
were able to preview products and sit down with the architect to fine-tune the fabrics and finishes. We also created renderings so the client could visualize how all the pieces fit together within their vision.”

Brookfield Properties enlisted Gensler to redesign and renovate their expansive 20,000 square foot lobby. The challenge was to furnish an inviting space featuring a variety of seating areas for infrequent tenant and guest use.
McCoy Rockford offered a single-source furnishing solution, providing a range of options manufactured by Steelecase and others in the Steelecase Partner Network. Supplying a side-by-side comparison of products sourced by Gensler, McCoy Rockford was able to offer alternatives the client could bundle for superior discounts and a more controlled schedule.
The lobby was transformed with interactive and inviting furnishings. Going beyond a typical waiting area, the lobby now functions as a meeting and gathering space enabling tenants and guests to conduct business at the ground level.
