Chervon
A [skil]set that works.
Integrating inviting workspaces and intensive product testing.
Welding meets well-being.
When Chervon, a rapidly-growing tools manufacturer, sought to establish a US presence, they looked to HED for an innovative office space that could meet a wide variety of needs. Their new headquarters would need to seamlessly integrate workspaces and product testing labs. Feel creative and collaborate instead of “corporate.” And support both sustainability and employee well-being.

Our team faced multiple challenges in fulfilling the brief. After work began, we discovered that the original builders had not completed the LEED process for the building’s shell and core. To address this oversight, we adapted the interior to meet LEED criteria, adding clerestory windows for natural light and insulating office walls for thermal comfort.

Another challenge was addressing potential aural disruption caused by the proximity between office spaces and testing labs. To avoid adding extra material to the ceiling and closing off the open space, we installed a white noise system to minimize disturbances.

The resulting structure is a LEED-certified warehouse, testing lab, showroom and collaborative work area in one, combining multiple, seemingly-disparate functions into a single, seamless space.
