The Neenan Co., a design-build firm based in Colorado, has moved its headquarters to a new office space within its latest redevelopment project in Fort Collins. The move coincides with the company’s 50th year in business.
The multi-tenant, 40,000-sq-ft, redeveloped office space is located at 3325 S. Timberline Rd., the site of the former Value Plastics building. The two-story building has historical significance to the firm, as The Neenan Co. originally designed it as an industrial facility in 1995.
“‘The Neenan Company has quite a history with this building,” said David Shigekane, president of the company. “We initially designed it as a progressive industrial facility, and we recently seized the opportunity to redevelop it into a highly desirable office space.”
Design elements of the new office feature modern, streamlined details combined with Colorado beetle-kill wood and other outdoor-inspired design elements. A combination of both open and closed workspaces as well as upgraded natural light and LED technology contributes to the ambience of the office. A glass garage door in the break area and windows that open to the exterior enhance a connection to the outdoors.
The Neenan Co. incorporated elongated conference rooms to promote conversation as well as streamlined teleconferencing capabilities to ensure seamless communication to jobsites around the country. The office includes a layout and design that facilitates impromptu discussions and team productivity.
Additionally, the company has embraced appropriate acoustics within the space, which features a balance of open-desk areas and high ceilings with acoustic capabilities, fostering a collaborative and productive working enviroment.
