In this episode of NeoConversations, we’ll find out what happens when a commercial design brand takes on the design of new headquarters. What are the challenges and opportunities involved in bringing teams from disparate offices together into a unified headquarters? And, what is involved in the design and construction of that project so that it emcompasses the brand’s DNA, supports company culture and sends a strong message to the world about the company’s mission? Plus, how do you do all that and consider LEED and WELL specifications?
