Creating a shared community that meets the needs of several lines of business was the objective for this office. Wells Fargo’s 10-story, 280,000-square-foot new office building needed to accommodate the varying needs of more than 1,500 employees, while providing adaptability for future growth.
To support these goals, the design includes a range of workplace spaces and gathering and meeting areas. Collaborative areas, focus rooms and a variety of amenity areas give employees various spaces to connect. An open, vibrant environment with plenty of natural light engages employees to be more productive.
To maintain the aggressive schedule for a project of this magnitude, RS&H followed Lean principles during design. Maintaining a running list of issues with due dates for resolution and responsible team members ensured that information and decisions were obtained in a timely manner to keep the design on schedule.
