Taking a strategic look at their corporate real estate standards, efficiency and work environment culture, this corporate client implemented the first in a series of full floor renovations to their campus in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia.
Working with a project management team out of their New York City headquarters, the SMBW team developed a design utilizing global brand standards while also creating a local vernacular to speak to the staff working in this location.
Not only was the look and feel of the space in need of an over haul, but the building infrastructure required an upgrade. A new fire pump room, sprinkler riser and sprinkler system were added with capacity to expand as the other floors come online for renovation. Restrooms were completely renovated and expanded to provide code compliant facilities along with a complete cafe kitchen. Core shaft wall fire ratings and fire dampers were remedied and added to provide a safe working environment.
