Johnson Controls needed to upgrade their customer experience in Milwaukee, WI, to reflect their leadership position, latest technologies and customer based solutions in the automated building controls industry. McMillan Group created the concept and storyline for the headquarter building as The Brengel Technology Center and Showcase for Building Environments, a living lab to demonstrate technologies. The design achieved a distinctive Brand look and provided pre-produced media and displays that were highly customizable for each visit. We delivered an effective and immersive customer center environment that made an impact to ensure sealing the deals, making the destination trip worth it.
"The Showcase provides our customers with direct evidence of our expertise, commitment and ability to provide them with solutions for their business needs. It's a win for McMillan Group, a win for Johnson Controls and, most importantly, a win for our customers."
