Solidus’s New Offices are Sensational!

Solidus is based in Bloomfield, CT.

We have now moved into our spacious new offices in Bloomfield, CT, designed by our own interior designers. And it’s sensational.

On March 24th, 2015, Solidus held a company-wide meeting to introduce all staff to the new space and make department presentations on the continued success and growth of the company. Notably, the offices were designed by our own interior design team. A photographer caught many of the superb features that make the property truly special to us.

We love the awesome angled windows and contemporary feel.

The inner office has an abstract theme; earth tones punctuated by bold colored partitions and panels. There’s natural wood and brushed steel. There are beautiful angled windows reminiscent of a luxury yacht. In the center of the building is a quadrangle, where team members can eat their lunch under the sun.

Offices are arranged along two walls, one row of which overlooks the parking lot, the other the quad. Natural light is available in abundance here. There are also interior pods where business development staff work. The design area is enclosed in its own open-plan cube, next to the large table and drawers we use for storing construction and design drawings.

Solidus offices are designed for maximum natural lighting.

Another view of the awesome color palette our interior designer Ray Whitledge conceived for the new Solidus headquarters in Bloomfield.

The main conference room is a suite of complementary colors; chairs match carpets match walls match furniture. There is also a collage which will be finished soon. An eleven by five-and-a-half foot grid of hi-def photographs, logos, symbols and a comic strip, the collage exudes all that we are. The grid is constructed from 22-inch square framed panels that can be swapped out for others as new images of our mission are created.

The company meeting itself was conducted in a marvelous atmosphere. Solidus President John Charette was MC, and he welcomed several team members up to present the latest on their departments.
