Kinoo, Inc. is providing turnkey development services to the National
Institute of Health(NIH), Bathesda, MD. Kinoo’s services include
Architectural design, Interior design, planning and getting the
construction executed from a third party. A typical exercise has
been as follows.
The Office of the Director at building 31A, and the support offices
and branches, are occupying the space had to be renovated. The arrangements
and the conditions of the existing offices and the branches were
improvised and inefficient, and in some cases inadequate. Most of
the office spaces were cluttered and crowded, and there were some
areas and shelves which were unreachable and unusable. Generally,
the interiors were a mismatch of styles, colors, finishes and furniture.
By organizing the branches and the offices in desired configuration
based on functional relationships of the branches and the offices,
Kinoo has provided an ideal arrangement of the branches and offices.
At the same time, by grouping branch functions together many of
the support features are shared; including conference rooms, storage,
reception area, etc. Consolidation of branch functions has also
helped in a more efficient operation and improved communication.
