Completion: 2014
Project Type: Phased
Size: 50,000 SF

Global space and furniture standards were adapted to meet the preferences of the local culture and operations. The majority of offices were removed and the perimeter opened up to provide daylight and views for all employees. Careful placement of touchdown and meeting spaces ensured a suitable balance of open and closed space. An internal staircase was extended through three floors to encourage unplanned collisions between departments. Collaborative spaces anchor the stair at each floor. The renovation was undertaken in situ with three phased moves over five months. The resulting space savings was an entire floor or about 18,750 SF.
