Newell Atlanta Office New Location

Newell Brands is a Fortune 500 company and manufacturer of a variety of “classic” American products from the Sharpie and Elmer’s Glue to the Crock Pot and Rawlings baseball gloves. With the recent relocation of the corporate headquarters from Atlanta to New Jersey, the company needed a smaller, more intimate space for the Atlanta office.

Salas O’Brien provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design services for this corporate office location. The multi-floor design project included corporate offices, meeting rooms, fully functional commercial kitchen and cafeteria, fitness center, retail showroom, and product testing labs.

This project presented a unique challenge for our team to deliver a state-of-the-art, energy efficient, healthy environment within the constraints of the exsiting building. Our creative designs included light harvesting and variable speed controls for mechanical equipment, resulting in reduced lighting power density (14% better than code) and potable water use (39% better than code).

Salas O’Brien continues to save Newell Brands money no matter the office size in the Atlanta area.
