Recently, Bosch moved to a new location in Sunnyvale and the DesignLink team was faced with several design challenges including; the integrating of labs and office space on multiple floors as well as a significant upgrade in MEP infrastructure to support new battery, chemical synthesis and automotive labs.  By concentrating heavy lab equipment and office support functions on the ground floor, the upper floors could be better utilized for office space and light duty, electronic and robotics labs. Another significant design challenge was integrating the Bosch corporate design standards with the more current Silicon Valley workplace trends.  The former Bosch workplace was an outdated design that utilized a variety of furniture styles, heavy on private offices, and secluded conference rooms.  The new Bosch global design standards helped to support the change in workplace that is now open, personal, flexible, and collaborative.  Security was also a concern, so it was important to balance the open work environment with the ability to restrict visitors and contract worker access to certain areas of the space.  The new layout facilitates various levels of security while remaining seamlessly open, collaborative and inviting for the employees working in all locations throughout the space.

"I have worked with Steve for over twenty years on various projects and have always found his ability to solve our real estate needs a real bonus.  His ideas and solutions are creative and thoughtful, helping our organization and projects to be successful.   He knows how to strike the right balance between the needs of the users and the real estate design team.  As a team, we must work in-between the constraints of the projects including budget and schedules; keeping within those constraints can be a challenge. The DesignLink team manages the challenge well and finds new ways to solve and work both the big and small topics on our projects.  DesignLink  consistently over-delivers on service.  Steve and the Bosch team work in a trusted relationship that helps to facilitate our ability to watch over the best interests of the Bosch organization."
