ECI Software Solutions is an industry leading cloud-based business management software serving small to medium-sized businesses in multiple markets. ECI was experiencing rapid growth and desired to create a more collaborative and modernized workplace to support its employees.

Pope Architects teamed with ECI and Cushman & Wakefield to fit plan and explore several lease options in different buildings. Although it was difficult for the tenant to see beyond the existing layout of their existing space, ECI renewed it’s current lease – the 2nd Floor of the Northland Center in Bloomington and embarked on a renovation. With strategic demolition to open up the core of the floor, the design team was able to work to transform the dark, enclosed environment into a bright and inviting workplace.

ECI’s culture focuses on fostering employee interaction with an emphasis on recognition, encouragement and collaboration. The renovation opens up the environment to create zones for teamwork and fun — like the glass-surrounded conference room and expansive break room with foosball and ping pong tables, while also creating efficient spaces for heads-down focus. Application of brand messaging and pops of color help create a lively and welcoming workplace.
