Propagating a positive approach to change.
Value Brought to Project
As one of New England’s leading fresh flower distributors, Designers Choice embraces a scientific approach to beauty. With a Latin America-based product portfolio spanning 700 varieties, Designers Choice is known for consistent quality and environmental sensitivity being both Florverde Sustainable and Rainforest Alliance certified. Focused on a shared business model that returns value to farmers, recent growth necessitated a new warehouse and distribution center.
Design Build Value
The Designers Choice ethos is focused on the well-being of employees, product and environment. A preeminent issue was creating 4 different temperature zones ranging from 35 degrees to ambient for optimal product quality and human comfort. Efficiency lies at the center of this floor plan – two docking stations back into the cold storage area for product unloading which opens to the main work floor space with 4 assembly lines. Finished product then leaves the assembly area via 4 docking stations. Additionally, a wholesale showroom, breakroom, executive office and 5 bathrooms were installed.
