John is a specialist in workplace programming, planning, and design strategies. To help achieve more efficient workplaces and to understand the work processes of clients, he works closely with them, either in brainstorming groups or in an observatory role. As new technology becomes more pervasive in offices and as business needs change, John works to ensure that his clients’ environments continue to fit their needs. For clients such as GSK and W.L.Gore & Associates, he developed innovative workplace configurations that incorporate the technologies and spaces needed for contemporary business. The president of GSK US Pharma praised the design for their headquarters, saying: "My teammates and I are energized by this new environment where we can do our best work and collaborate without the constraints of offices walls."
