Liferay is a leading provider of enterprise open source portal and collaboration software that serves Fortune 500 clients  in the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific.  Hamilton is the home to the Liferay National Sales Staff Offices which occupy 2,800 sq. ft. in the Historic Robinson Schwenn Building in downtown Hamilton. CDA worked with Liferay to create an open, collaborative office space on a budget.  Using open offices and private spaces, exposed ceiling ductwork, floor to ceiling glass and a neutral palette with a pop of Liferay electric blue and vintage inspired light fixtures, the contemporary vibe of the work environment suits the young and diverse Liferay culture.  The CDA design team, which included APG Office, created a flexible and cost effective space that can be used equally well for local staff and occasional large group meetings.
