Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA), has been recognized as the collective voice of Saskatchewan municipalities since 1906 and is the collective voice for all Saskatchewan hometown communities representing the interests of the members to other orders of government, leading to improved local government and thriving, sustainable communities. SUMA truly is a member-driven organization that believes in providing innovative and value-driven programs and services to its members. As part of this continual member commitment, SUMA decided to invest in a new office in Regina, SK to further service their members and they selected Concept3 Business Interiors (C3BI) in conjunction with 1080 architecture to actualize a vision for the new space.

"I’d like to express my sincere thanks to the entire C3BI team for the wonderful job they did on our new project. We were really impressed with their professionalism and follow through in creating the look and design we wanted. They did a fantastic job and we really appreciate them going above and beyond for us when needed. C3BI was a huge part of our new office creation and I wanted to make sure that you all know how much we appreciate your hard work!

Thank you C3BI! We LOVE our new office!!"

C3BI seamlessly integrated Teknion’s HiSpace height-adjustable desks with Humanscale’s ultra-sleek, easy to adjust dual monitor arms and Teknion’s Expansion personal storage into Teknion’s easy to customize Leverage panel system not only to provide individual division for employees with a bright, open and welcoming environment but to allow for instant personalization within each workstation to support a healthier, more ergonomic working posture for improved comfort, health, and productivity. This theme was then mirrored in all the private offices with the continuation of Hi-Space height adjustable desks with Humanscale dual monitor arms, but in conjunction with Teknion’s Expansion Casegood line with its’ broad range of freestanding applications uniquely paired with the beautiful and iconic Y-leg from Teknion’s UpStage line and Sit-on-It’s slim and stylish Wit Guest Chairs to provide a interesting modern flair.

C3BI creatively used Teknion’s diverse filing line Ledger in conjunction with a continuous seamless top, leaving space for Global Upholstery’s beautiful contemporary Duet seating to create a unique collaborative area that not only meets the storage needs of the office but seamlessly integrated the file & storage requirements with a unique and functional gathering space with a simple clean crisp design.

C3BI continued the use of Global’s diverse Duet chair line with both bar height stools and regular height stacking chairs in the café area in conjunction with one of Teknion’s Expansion Training tables to create a welcoming contemporary look to the cafe but with a fun and distinctive restaurant feel.

In the meeting rooms, C3BI used an interesting combination of Teknion’s Expansion Training tables paired with the clean and unassuming look of Teknion’s Projek chairs for their aesthetic variety that allowed a perfect visual fit into the design. The creative use of Teknion’s Zones modular seating interspersed with tablets along the wall in the large meeting room not only provided the requirement for extra seating but presented the opportunity to add a splash of color to the space while providing extra electrical and USB outlets to sustain multi-users in an inviting comfortable and un-obstructive way. C3BI continued this uninterrupted design into the other 2 meeting areas using both Spec’s iconic Tailgate Bullet table with media wall and Teknion’s Expansion square based round table in identic pallets and uniformly paired with Teknion’s smart simple Projek chairs to complete all the meeting space with a consistent aesthetic throughout.

C3BI is absolutely thrilled to have been a part of this project and hope SUMA will enjoy their beautiful new office for many years to come!
