Taylor Workshop has been keeping busy over the last few weeks with various projects for Chick-fil-A and International Hotel Group. IHG, for example, requested some changes to their ongoing Staybridge Suites display that required modifying hotel room walls and furniture to keep the layout up to date with changes the design team has been formulating. Also, the holiday Inn build has finally come to a close and has been disassembled completely after several months of being on display. The Taylor Workshop team has received high praise for their efforts in making the project a success.
As for Chick-fil-A:
P12 was a project built and displayed in medium resolution using both wood and foam materials to build the landscape of an experimental look at new ways to use the drive-thru. Here are some shots of the build;
And Another picture here of the completed interior set up
The goal of this simulation was to maximize the efficiency of the drive-thru while increasing its output capacity. The wall was drive-thru wall itself was built out of wood and its surrounding walls were completed using foam walls from our inventory. This made for a pleasing higher resolution look that the average foam Sims we build, while doing a great job of keeping costs down. Equally importantly, it wow’d everyone who saw it, and that’s a nice payoff for the Taylor Workshop crew (and out clients as well).
More recently Taylor Workshop completed another more current rendition of Chick-fil-A’s 37th and 6th street Manhattan layout. This isn’t exactly a top secret simulation, but it is preferentially closed to most except for Chick-fil-A’s Operator Innovation Team. The team is going to walk trough the layout and discuss what they do and don’t like about it. Manhattan, being one of Chick-fil-A’s blossoming urban layouts in it’s infancy, needs this high level of criticism from the team because the urban environment is a new frontier for the company.
That’s what the crew has been up to the last few weeks. Several jobs big and small and keeping clients happy. More updates to come!
