Building D—Sordoni completed this extensive renovation and interior fit-out project within the occupied corporate headquarters complex, Building D, a four-story office building with a total of 204,000 sf. The renovation work was split between 2-phases. Phase-1 consisted of renovating the first and second floors. Floors three and four, designed as high density work station areas for relocated associates from various sectors, quickly followed. The first floor included an elaborate IT network and data center with a 100 kva uninterrupted power supply, two 50 ton air handlers, teleconference center, training/conference rooms and a “Grab ‘N Go” cafeteria, which was later expanded as part of Phase-2. The second, third and fourth floors are mostly open office areas, private offices and conference/training rooms with glass office fronts.
