In this complex project, Salas O’Brien provided interior design, systems alterations, and construction administration services for the consolidation of 32 floors of high-rise office space into 15 floors. Our team’s engineering and design expertise enabled the contractor to meet CenturyLink’s aggressive migration deadlines and achieve a successful transition.
CenturyLink is a leading U.S. communication provider with enterprise customers in more than 60 countries across the globe. The company places a strong emphasis on customer experience and aims to help clients manage network and IT complexity and cyber security while providing reliable and secure connections.
When CenturyLink leadership decided that owning the 32-story 1600 Seventh office tower in Seattle, Washington, no longer fit their business plan, they negotiated with Urban Renaissance Group (URG) and Clarion Capital Partners to sell the property and transition into a leasing agreement for existing CenturyLink offices in the high-rise. This transaction led to the consolidation of 32 floors of CenturyLink offices down to just 15 floors—all within a tight deadline.
Salas O’Brien provided systems, furniture, and space planning for all impacted floors, redistributing all of the client’s employee and accessory spaces. This process included the selection of new carpet, paint, and casework. Our team also made alterations to electrical, mechanical, and security systems to allow for the addition of another tenant to the high-rise.
Salas O’Brien’s efficient project management, construction administration, and management of long-lead items ensured that the contractor met the client’s aggressive migration deadlines and helped CenturyLink stay organized, on schedule, and in budget.
