Their challenge

This major insurance client needed a trustworthy partner that could provide technology and engineering design services to support the construction of this property. The property needed to match the significance and vast reach of the busy company it housed. For example, the new corporate headquarters would require a uniquely laid out and  spacious design with sections for offices, executive and conference spaces, dining, back-of-house areas, event spaces, and much more. In addition, this building required modern technology and engineering design services to bring it up to par with surrounding buildings and businesses.

Our solution

Our design work on this project began with having the existing 11-story office building gutted to the structural core and completely renovated. We then provided a design solution that featured executive office floors, a fitness center, an executive level, state-of-the-art conference and board rooms, built-out cooking and dining spaces, as well as back-of-house spaces. Then, to meet the unique needs of the company, our team’s design also included some special features such as a Network Operation Center (NOC) with 24/7/365 support, as well as a 2nd-floor outdoor terrace and event space. Our team finished off the new building by providing technology design services that enhanced A.J. Gallagher’s project productivity, including security, structured cabling infrastructure, Audio/Visual, closed-circuit television and alarm monitoring, and in-building cellular enhancement (DAS).
