GE Access decided to relocate their corporate headquarters from five buildings in Boulder, Colorado to the Westmoor Technology Park. A 20,000 square foot sales floor remained in Boulder due to lease term considerations, requiring fiber-optic, satellite and microwave connectivity between the two facilities.
In addition to architectural design, space planning and interior design, Keeney Design was given the assignment to provide project management, coordinating all consultants and activities necessary for the relocation of the GE Access headquarters facility.
The entire project, from data gathering and space planning through move-in was completed in 6 months, and included gaining an amendment to the zoning that allowed building a new generator structure on the site. The project had to be fast-tracked to meet real estate lease obligations, and the move of several hundred employees from five buildings into the new facility occurred over one weekend. The project included a 5,000 square foot data center, employee café, state-of-the-art tele-conferencing facilities, UPS power system, dual utility grid connectivity, and an emergency generator. The project was completed on schedule and within budget.
