Overview

Contracted to update the commerce center for the chamber August 2012. Project was installed during October and November and celebrated with an Open House in December of 2012.

Goals

The office space needed to have an open circulation flow for staff and members to use for day to day operations, meetings, and business events. The design centered on furniture placement, updating interior materials, finishes, upholstery, artwork/photography, and by adding a gathering space that was welcoming and functional. Anchoring this area is a rock wall that supports media for marketing, meetings, and to showcase local business member achievements.

Process

The budget for this project was tight. We contracted only with other members of the chamber to promote local business. One of which is local artist Bill Wimp, who painted the city bridge on canvas and added a 3D affect with wood for the gathering area. Other business involved were Carpets Unlimited, Crandall's Furniture Store, and Welborn's Floral of Owensboro, KY.
