This 70,000 SF office was designed for the Guarantee Trust Life Insurance Company located in Glenview, IL. The scope of work included updating and rebranding the four floors of the 300 employee office. The client desired an open plan to encourage collaboration so the new workstations had lower panel heights without overhead storage. The company color was blue so we integrated this color throughout. The graphic walls were designed to break up the large runs of wall in the open office areas and to generate creativity and fun. The white bands on the graphic walls represent the sharing of ideas from one employee to another. The design was kept clean and simple with accents of color throughout. Green was used in the basement to signify nature due to the lack of natural light, orange was used to promote communication and stimulate the mind and yellow was used to promote happiness and optimism in the workspace. Design work included a new cafeteria, bathroom upgrades, training rooms, wellness center, golf simulator, collaborative teaming areas, scanning center, private offices and conference rooms.
