Your Creative & Steelcase team is committed to help you advance the way you live, learn and work.  Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, many organizations are being challenged to work in new ways, with many remote workers.  To aid in this transition, we have assembled a range of resources aimed at making this sudden transition a little easier, healthier, and more productive.

Architecture & Design Community Continuous Learning Resources

Every space is a learning space, even online!  As many Architecture & Design firms have discontinued in-person meetings in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have partnered with Steelcase to feature 4 live, online learning opportunities for our local Architecture and Design partners. Each of these sessions is 45-60 minutes long.

The Steelcase Marketplace tool gives you access to new and unique brands while making your job simpler, saving time and bringing together project teams – beautifully.  Learn how to add rocket fuel to your design process in this live webinar.
  3. CEU | Ancillary that Perform and Inspire: In this live, CEU webinar, you ‘ll learn how inspiring, high-performance ancillary spaces help leading organizations attract talent, enhance collaboration and build the bottom line.
  4. CEU | Biophilia, Wellness and the Visual Environment: In this course, attendees will gain an understanding of the concept of biophilia, and learn how biophilic design principles can be employed in an interior.
