Delivering over decades.
Taking a long-term relationship to the next level.
Less is more.
For more than two decades, HED has served as a trusted partner to a confidential financial client. From our initial partnership on an executive dining floor, HED has supported organizational growth across a wide range of projects spanning two decades.
Based on our client’s desire to minimize the footprint and maximize the efficiency of their Chicago presence, we recently developed a strategic master plan to consolidate and restack their Chicago office into a new, single-site headquarters.
After conducting multiple studies to define workplace criteria and determine planning guidelines, we crafted a vision for the new headquarters—one that would inspire collaboration and engagement. Maximize utilization, and eliminate waste. Meet current needs and goals, and adapt to future growth.
The new strategic master plan decreases out client's Chicago portfolio from 1.8 million square feet to 1.35 million square feet while increasing overall efficiency and effectiveness—proving that sometimes, less really can be more.
