Circle Home, Inc., a home health care and hospice provider and an affiliate of Circle Health, has selected Maugel Architects for the interior office fit out of the agency’s new 17,774 SF space, located at 847 Rogers Street in Lowell, Massachusetts. Formerly the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Lowell, Circle Home is consolidating departments and offices in the new facility. Circle Home's private duty company, Commonwealth Nursing Services, will also be housed in the new space which features conference rooms, classrooms, and a training room resembling a home care setting.
One of the interior design challenges was to create ample work space for traveling employees, while incorporating them into the everyday workflow of in-house staff. Working closely with Rachel Chaddock, Circle Home Executive Director, Maugel created a design that fosters communication and collaboration and provides an inviting, well-organized environment.
Circle Home’s services require the collection and maintenance of highly sensitive documents. Security was a crucial factor in the design and flow of the space. Maugel created a central entrance with a circulation pattern that allows visitors and employees to easily navigate to their destinations without compromising privacy.
“We are pleased to be continuing our relationship with Circle Health and its affiliates," said Brent Maugel, president of Maugel Architects. "Maugel recently completed the interior fit out for Circle Health’s Westford facility located at Cornerstone Square. We look forward to another successful collaboration as we work with Circle Home.”
Team members also included Pinnacle Construction Company and the owner representative, Equity Alliance LLC.
