Benefiting Benefield: How 3form is Helping Transform a Community

August 26, 2021

BUILDINGS and i+s have partnered with global design firm HKS and nonprofit Boaz + Ruth on a new community-based project in Richmond, Virginia—the Benefield Building

This community center will feature retail, makers’ studios, co-living units and important connections to the surrounding area and transit.

One of the generous sponsors helping make this project a reality is 3form. Karli Slocum, vice president of marketing for 3form, joined i+s to talk about the company’s involvement in the Benefield project and how 3form’s new product line, Flek, embodies 3form’s commitment to sustainability.
