Providing Multifaceted Engineering to Gut and Renovate an 11-Story Headquarters Building

The property needed to match the significance and vast reach of the busy company it housed. Its new headquarters required 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.

This renovation involved gutting the 11-story building to the structural core. To meet the unique needs of the company, our team’s design included 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, audiovisual, closed-circuit television and alarm monitoring, and in-building cellular enhancement (DAS).
