Where Business Meets Design

Today’s workplace is a strategic system. Best-of-class corporations recognize that an effective workplace is essential to their drive for innovation and competitive advantage.

So where does a great workplace begin? A great lease in a Class A building would provide room for new offices, and maybe even a view. That iconic tower might give the company identity and ample space for growth. An exceptional site might help a client envision a new corporate campus, but that is only one part of the equation. 


At PDR we don’t begin with real estate or architecture. When investigating new ways of working, we start with the worker and the work. Business and design meet at the individual in the workplace. 

Our approach is performance focused. If we can give individuals and teams the right tools at the right time in the right place, they will be better able to perform and to succeed. So we begin by understanding what success means for a business, how the workers contribute to that success. We don’t believe there’s one right answer. Our processes are designed to help leadership create a workplace that will be the optimum solution for their culture, their workforce and their business.

Working with the largest, most innovative companies globally we have developed an integrated practice that allows us to address workplace challenges in their entirety. From early sessions with our Workplace Performance team through Strategic Planning to Design and Architecture to Business Transition services that facilitate occupancy, we look at our services holistically. Our efforts are connected and cumulative in value; first decisions have impact far into the future.
