Creating Tomorrow’s Workspace. Today.

As businesses begin to explore and plan for the reopening and welcoming back of employees, customers and visitors, it is critical that we create environments that make us all feel comfortable and safe. Image Options is committed to doing just that. We have developed a 4-step back-to-work process where our team of experts in experiential design, engineering and installation will work with you to get the entire office – from entry to exit – ready to re-open.

In addition, our experience in experiential design, space planning, engineering, custom graphics and fabrication allows us to create unique products and solutions that not only promote health and safety, but also embody the essence of your brand and culture. So the new normal will feel as warm and inviting as it always has.

How can real estate owners most effectively prepare their assets for the return of building occupants?
