Mason Office Center
Feedback from employees and customers regarding the design appearance of the interior of the Mason Office Center suggest that the design of the building could be improved. The feedback identified two concerns, dull color walls making the interior unattractive, and an occasional odor throughout the building.
To address both of these concerns I suggest the cost-effective solution of adding plants throughout the building. Plants will add attractive colors throughout taking the attention away from the dull walls. Plants will also add oxygen and filter the air, eliminating the musty odor of the building.
The recommended changes will cost $1323.00 to implement and will cost $75.00 a month to maintain. These low costs will result in a building interior that is visually appealing and has a fresh clean smell.
The unattractive interior design and the musty odor or the Mason Office Center are a serious concern to both our customers and employees. The Mason Office Center contains four offices that the client considers unattractive to potential customers and employees. The unattractive design aspects outlined by the client include the dull white wall color. In addition to concerns regarding the design the client also want to address the unpleasant musty smell throughout the building.
Mason Office Center is a lovely Georgian building containing four offices. However, the interior is not attractive or inviting for clients/customers and employees. The off-white walls throughout the complex seem dull and boring, adjectives the tenants do not want associated with their businesses. In addition, the air in the building is musty and unpleasant at times. (Reworded)

In seeking a solution to the interior design and smell of the Mason Office Center, we want to increase the look of the build without modifying the leased space. We also want to eliminate the musty odor with the expansive cost of an air filtration system. The solution needs to be low cost, address the smell concerns, address the interior design concerns, and be inexpensive to maintain.
