A New Addition to Sierra Monitor's Engineering Team

I was at the newly remodeled SMC South Africa office last week. As part of the MSA acquisition, the engineering team in Johannesburg relocated into a larger space, and in the process created a showpiece of workplace efficiency, collaboration, and energy.

The new open floorplan incorporates several collaboration areas, including both casual and formal meeting spaces. The café area includes a casual bar-like environment ideal for lunches, snacks, or just talking over coffee.

The office centerpiece is the ‘living wall’ – a floor-to-ceiling wall of live plants, complete with watering system and growing light. While the living wall increases indoor oxygen levels and naturally dampens sound, it really creates a unique living vibe in the office.

The investment is an acknowledgment of the engineering team’s past performance and signals an increased investment in the impressive engineering talent available in the Johannesburg area.
