Red Thread Communications
Grand Rapids MI

RedThread Communications hired First Companies to manage the build-out of their current space at 80 Ottawa.  The group was looking to create a showcase environment that would attract the next generation of employees while maximizing the space.  RedThread understood the need to combine comfort, function and the emotional satisfaction that inspires employees to do their best work.  The environment the team created increased productivity as well as employee engagement and satisfaction.  First Companies helped RedThread plan out the space, select materials and manage all construction.  The design combines “old and new” and utilizes the original windows, exposed brick and wood floors.

“First Companies helped us to align our vision for the space by creating an adaptable work space that supported our immediate needs with the ability to change and adapt over time.  They helped us to maximize our footprint, balance the need for privacy and collaboration in a contemporary, inviting space that reflects our brand and culture.  I would recommend First Companies because of their experience, ‘one-stop-shop’ capability, and willingness to go above and beyond expectations.”   Greg Matheny
