Probation Office Pilots Lean, Open Design to Shrink Space, Rent Bills

The Chicago project shows IWI’s dramatic potential for cutting space, and rent costs. When the probation officers relocated in 2015, they moves from 53,000 feet of leased commercial space to about 20,000 square feet in the John C. Kluczynski Federal Building, located downtown near the Everett M. Dirksen U.S. Courthouse. That represents a space reduction of 55 percent, and projected annual rent savings of more than $1.4 million.

This office also emphasizes a collaborative work culture by bringing together the entire workforce, from officers to supervisors.
