Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 24, 2007
Leopardo Construction, a leading construction services firm, recently completed a 103,000-square-foot interior build-out for the Chicago headquarters of Abelson Taylor, a medical and pharmaceutical advertising agency.
Needing to expand its operations, add collaborative spaces and create a modern working portfolio to feature its award-winning work, Abelson Taylor assembled an expert project team that included Harley Ellis Devereaux as designer, Leopardo Construction as general contractor and Staubach Midwest as the owner’s representative.
The new interior provides Abelson Taylor with many open office areas to create a space that feels much larger. Constructed during a 16-week schedule, the headquarters realized a significant increase in conference rooms without a dramatic addition of conferencing space. The office also features several small collaborative areas, more natural light and outside views into the workspace. A custom pantry was built in the shape of a 9-foot-tall egg – made of wood, plaster and fresco finishes – to pay homage to one of the agencies first campaigns.
