Skanska Office Renovation

Skanska Infrastructure Development (ID), a business unit of Skanska, hired BKV Group to provide architectural and interior design services for the renovation of their current 6,500 sf space and 3,900 expansion. The project was to be executed in three phases to enable the office to functions to be uninterrupted while construction commenced.

The design utilized the International Corporate Standards, while providing unique functional requirements specific to the ID organization. Through the use of feature materials and open workstation layout, the design created an open, bright environment that cultivates collaboration and team participation.

The project consisted of the development of a new state of the art board room, catering pantry equipped with seating lounge, collaboration break-out spaces, huddle rooms, and a new reception area equipped with a new suite entry. The existing workstations and conference rooms were upgraded and reconfigured to accommodate the new office layout.

The key design criteria for the reception area was to provide a unique interpretation of the corporate branding guidelines. This interpretation resulted in the creation of a wood feature element inscribed with the corporate logo. This recessed ‘S’ reflects the subtle yet significant concepts associated with Skanska. The project was designed with numerous sustainable features and has been submitted for LEED Gold certification.
