Fortune 500 Subsidiary Corporate Headquarters
Reinforcing company culture was key to a successful relocation effort
This Fortune 500 subsidiary needed to determine whether its headquarters should remain in an outdated building with sentimental value it had owned for many years, or relocate into leased space in a commercial office building. After assessing existing needs and anticipated growth, the KPS team guided subsidiary and parent company stakeholders through a complex, two-pronged cost/benefit analysis comparing the options. Projecting initial and long-term costs and challenges associated with bringing the existing building up to contemporary workplace standards and comparing them to those of moving into leased space, helped all stakeholders understand the alternatives and reach consensus on the decision to relocate. The companies then retained the KPS interiors team to compare multiple locations and design their new 14,000sf space. Branding and reinforcing company culture, vision, and values in this intake and training hub for multiple nationwide branch offices was a significant focus for the team. The vibrant, contemporary space integrates workplace design best practices in an environment that supports both individual and collaborative activities of varying scales in multimedia spaces.
