Workspace Advantage: We've Got Swatches!

After some delays due to permitting and planning, the Workplace Advantage remodel of the Engineering Excellence space is on track. I know some of you are rolling their eyes, but I personally am excited about this. We've got plans of the new space, and an actual date where we move out for construction (mid-May).

There will be a period where we are a bit nomadic; some groups in EE will have assigned temporary offices, but the dev team, at least, decided to not move into temporary space; we'll have a spot to put our desktop machines, but otherwise we will work from home, book conference rooms, squat in lounges, etc. I expect there will be a period of discovery as we seek out the most comfortable spots. Of course when we are teaching, we'll be in our regular classrooms.

The best sign this was really happening was that we were asked to choose among fabric samples for our couches. Since we are giving up some personal space, we get it back in the form of a mini-lounge in our team area, complete with coffee table and laptop stands. So, we need to choose the colors for all this. We had some slightly interesting fabrics to choose from. I was leaning towards a red-with-green-palm-tree and grey-with-dots combo, but the consensus in our team was for an exciting combination of beige, tan, ecru and sand. Oh well. You can take the developer out of the office, but you can't take the office out of the developer.
