Luckett & Farley announces strategic partnership with Hopewell to advance client insights in light of the pandemic
With new CDC guidance making a return to office imminent for many companies, Kentucky architecture firm Luckett & Farley continues to equip its team and its clients for the future of work.
“Luckett & Farley is dedicated to supporting our clients and community so they can make informed decisions that best utilize their current or future space and best support their staff as they move into the next phase of the modern workplace,” said Luckett & Farley President and CEO Aric Andrew. “COVID-19 has shown us that the best solution varies from person to person and business to business.”
Human-centered office design
Luckett & Farley identified the need to more deeply understand client’s employees and continue to track changes in their needs and work habits over time. This led to a partnership with Hopewell (now Align), a Columbus, Ohio-based company dedicated to providing data-based insight into optimizing and aligning physical environments to worker preferences for positive work experiences and peak performance.
The information gleaned from Hopewell’s (now Align) surveying software will ensure Luckett & Farley’s clients and designers have what they need to create a workplace strategy where policies, technology and spaces optimally support the workstyles of each client’s team.
Expanding office design team
Many companies, including Luckett & Farley client Texas Roadhouse, were making major changes to their corporate offices pre-pandemic to evaluate needs and offer greater flexibility. To build on its strong team and further its efforts to address these future-minded shifts, the firm has hired Senior Project Manager Daniel Castro to join its Corporate Commercial and Hospitality Design Studio.
Castro brings a holistic, cost-effective approach to space planning and building to Luckett & Farley. Clients say he listens to what they need and delivers a good balance between aesthetics and constructability. While his 20-year career has been focused on office spaces, Castro’s portfolio is diverse including embassies, advertising agencies, and banks.
