Moss Adams

Moss Adams choose to have no assigned private offices – including for partners. Even their C Suite sits in open workstations.

Moss Adams is one of the largest accounting and consulting firm in the nation and the largest headquartered in the West. They have 3,200 partners and employees who are based in one of 33 offices up and down the West Coast and across the southwest as far east as Kansas City.
Moving from a traditional accounting firm with multiple private offices to an open plan and free address spaces, OpenSquare partnered with NBBJ and Moss Adams to design a workstation and ancillary standards program to support Moss Adams’ throughout the western United States. We have completed their Seattle location and 16 other offices as of the end of 2021. We continue our development and implementation of their various offices around the Western US.
“As an organization you must put in the hard work of clarifying your goals, studying different options, conducting workshops, focus groups and change management sessions, evaluating survey results and thoroughly vetting the findings. Only then can you start to shape the model that will be successful for you.” – Wade McIntyre, Moss Adams Director of Real Estate and Procurement
Their approach to standardization allowed them to build flexibility into the workspace while at the same time reducing the frustration of inconsistencies. As people move from one workstation to another, one room to another and one renovated office to another, there is a continuity in the types of spaces, technology and amenities they find.
