The Taylorsville State Office Building Project
As a result, the new environments in the Taylorsville State Office Building are matched to how our employees work and also build on broader changes that have occurred over the past several decades including increased mobility, teleworking, collaboration, and digitization. The new work environments are built with change in mind and are flexible enough to accommodate further shifts to mobility, teleworking, and collaboration.
Based on early reports from groups having moved into the building in January 2020, the space is performing well with a significant majority of users reporting high satisfaction and a preference for the new work environments.

Providing Safe & Productive Environments during COVID-19
- TSOB spaces provide a wide-range of environments to support different work patterns simultaneously, and with little alteration of space. Activity-based work environments currently allow colleagues with dramatically different work styles (e.g. mobility, collaboration, privacy needs...) to work in the same space seamlessly.
- The functionality of many spaces can be altered often with furniture changes (e.g. changing an office to a meeting room), or protocols (e.g. changing an assigned workstation to a touchdown workstation).
- All spaces, though customized for specific groups draw from a consistent palate of space designs that can be flexibly applied and changed to fit needs
- The generous size and spacing of workstations allow for a moderate level of density and good social distancing to support greater safety during the pandemic – the majority of spaces are not significantly smaller than spaces in other State environments.
what we did
Interviewed Agency Leadership
We interviewed 30 leaders to gain valuable insight into how they run their business
We ran workshops with 150 state agency employees to better understand your specific needs
We ran focus groups and surveyed colleagues working in the building, to apply learnings to the design of other spaces
We surveyed 600+ state employees to ensure that everyone had a voice at the table
We have worked closely with department steering teams to fine-tune design and all aspects of the workplace
what we learned
Our Work has Evolved
As the decades have come and gone, our work has changed but our work spaces have stayed the same
We're Much More Mobile
We are now more mobile, collaborative, and tech-dependent and we expect more from our work environments
Our Work Space Needs Have Changed
We have a more complex range or work place needs, from highly social to quiet zones, and spaces to meet, focus, and recharge
Increased Need to Support Teleworkers
With the growth of the New Workplace Program, we have an opportunity to rethink how to best support a teleworking workforce
