Dallas Manages Sustainable LEED Gold Office and Call Center
The new Dallas area interior fit-out for a financial client achieved LEED Gold certification. Located on the second floor of a two-story office building, the scope of work includes call center functions, boardroom, interview rooms, tele-presence room, training rooms, server room and mail room. The project was awarded the Interior Design, Best of 2011 merit award for a mid-size office.
Central to the call center’s concept is the use of ‘collaboration’ and ‘rejuvenation’ spaces. Collaboration spaces are flooded with natural light and contain polished glass marker boards and mobile seating, for flexible gatherings of the teams. The rejuvenation space is styled after the concept of Central Park in New York, and contains features including circular skylights and a green, living wall with an irrigation system and recirculation pump. Seating in ‘Central Park’ includes a long custom millwork and upholstered ‘park bench’ under skylights and table seating under lush 10’ tall trees in planters of recycled metal.
