A Tour of Skender Construction’s Elegant Chicago Office
Skender Construction, a construction company that offers design, construction, and manufacturing services, hired architecture and interior design firm Perkins+Will to design their new office in Chicago, Illinois.
“The relocation to Sterling Bay’s West Loop development provided Skender the opportunity to create a vibrant workplace that reflects their continued evolution as a premier national construction firm. This, the third office vision that Perkins+Will has partnered with Skender to complete, started with working closely with Skender’s leadership team to hear their vision through rich discussions that informed the design direction for their new home. The heart of the new space is a central hub that supports their vision of connecting staff in a vibrant, open, collaborative environment. Adjacent are three multi-functional spaces that support external phasing meetings with project partners, internal town hall meetings, and industry presentations. These three spaces open up to provide an event space for more than 600 people. One of the office’s significant successes is the ability to host tours, allowing Skender to connect directly with industry partners and potential clients,” says Perkins+Will
