WJE Office Tour

Today I thought I'd share some photos I took of my office awhile back.  Usually I wouldn't be too excited to take photos of an office interior, but my office is such a cool building that I really enjoy going to each day.  My company is a structural engineering firm called WJE {Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates}, and they just designed and built our free-standing office in Austin a few years ago, right before I started with them. 

I would describe the design as modern and architectural and the atmosphere as open, light and airy with an open floor plan, high ceilings, a ton of windows, and a view right out back to the greenbelt.  I also love how well the design displays pieces of our company's history and things that are unique to our field of work.  For instance, we have a lot of raw materials such as stone, glass, wood, concrete used on our floors, walls and ceilings.  We also have a hallway that displays photos printed on metal panels of some of our most notable projects as well as some unique concrete cores and other material samples from over the years {we also have a full-scale materials lab in our Austin office where we examine concrete and other materials for problems - you can see part of it to the right in the second photo}.  My favorite piece has got to be the front desk countertop - a polished slab of concrete that was taken from one of our job sites. 

The above picture is our Austin office manager, Matt Carlton, repelling down the side of the Washington Monument during the assessment following the earthquake in 2011. 

Thanks for checking it out!
