Updated: May 30

Although Greenparc manages offices, fitness centers, retail establishments, and more, I'd like to touch base about the evolution of offices throughout the last 2 decades. Greenparc was born out of office cleaning.

1970s Office

In the 1970s and 1980s, many organization wanted to create privacy on the office floor while allowing an open, collaborative space. The cube farm was born. Cubicle layouts where used with cheap furniture and eventually companies began to compress as many people into a space as possible. The introduction of computers left people connecting to other virtually instead of meeting in person. This all stifled creativity and made offices across the country indistinguishable.
