Friedman Construction & Design Company recently completed a 20,000 square foot build out for Meritus Communities in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Enhancements to the Meritus build-out included a gym, game area, and a large café/lounge contiguous to their work environment. These amenities reflect a growing trend among companies to create a collaborative and engaging work environment for their employees. They allow employees to step away from their work and enjoy a break without having to leave the premises. These amenities also assist in team building and provide a fun outlet for staff, which can be a necessity in today’s employee driven economy.
