Choate began working on this LEED Silver certified facility with Red Ventures and Architect Overcash & Demmitt early in the preconstruction process to best evaluate sustainable options for all project systems and components. The 97,700-SF headquarters overlooks Red Venture’s original office and call center.
The building exterior combines architectural tilt-wall panels, curtainwall glass and architectural metal panels. Office areas incorporate an open floor plan and staircases to promote employee interaction and movement between floors. The core contains the main lobby, grand staircase, glass elevator and executive office and conference areas.
Reflective of the innovate and personable spirit of the company, the new facility features a full-size basketball court designed to replicate a NBA court, with a four-sided scoreboard suspended from the ceiling. Other fitness amenities include a second-floor jogging track that overlooks the court, aerobics and workout areas, and complete locker room facilities. The project houses a full-service dining area with a kitchen, as well as indoor and outdoor seating. A pond with a water feature, pedestrian bridge and outdoor seating area separates the two office buildings.
