Chicago, Illinois / United States of America
Create a new corporate headquarters which reinforces and celebrates the firm's international reach. The first step was to relocate their 52,000 sf office to the 41st floor in the Willis Tower, a world renowned building. Second, celebrate the firm's global presence by using both literal and subconscious visual cues throughout the space. The end result is a professional work environment that elicits collaboration and reminds both clients and employees that they can gain insight from all their locations anywhere in the world.
The project's goal of LEED Silver Certification encouraged the utilization of sustainable elements. These include LED lighting and innovative hyper-efficient fluorescent lighting that increase energy efficiency by 30%. And the use of sustainable materials such as reclaimed wood, recycled steel, exposed concrete floors and linoleum are used throughout the space.
Workstations were designed for flexibility and expansion. Working in the technology industry, ShopperTrak's staffing needs can change in a matter of a few short weeks. To accommodate this, a flexible benching design was selected to adjust to changes in the firms business needs by maximizing real estate for future expansion.
