Mercedes Benz Financial Services

Project summary provided by submitting company.

The new, four-story, modern industrial building for Mercedes-Benz Financial Services is designed to complement the surrounding scenic landscape and enhance productivity by creating an environment for greater employee collaboration. The open community space in the heart of the building was strategically designed as an atrium to allow ample, natural daylight with unobstructed views of the nearby lake, which is located within walking distance from the office. Built to foster social interactions, the atrium will give employees a place to gather, connect and re-energize. The location also offers employees direct access to a variety of amenities, including health and wellness programming, organized sports and connectivity to a walking trail around the lake. The structure was produced by using large 4-story tilt wall panels in combination with structural steel and large curtain wall. This combination highlighted the open and bright feel of the building to welcome the outdoors into the space. Formliner was used to "wrap" the top portion of the tilt wall to provide accent lines.
