To take advantage of views, private offices that lined the perimeter were removed to create an impressive reception area and conference room. Several seating styles and areas provide ample room for waiting, lounging or impromptu meetings.
The conferencing and collaboration rooms are arranged adjacent to the new reception core, and their all-glass walls enable natural light to spill into adjacent spaces. Upon exiting the elevator, one can see directly through the suite and get a glimpse of Mount Evans. The new open environment provides for a better work flow and function. The clear visual connections between spaces give the administrative team the opportunity to communicate more efficiently.
