When Providence relocated their System Office from an urban high rise to a suburban campus setting, creating a sense of community and connectivity was paramount. Designed to LEED Gold specifications, the new headquarters houses more than 300 employees and serves as a hub for employees traveling from other regional offices. On-site amenities include a cafe, fitness center, chapel and courtyard. The open floor plan maximizes daylighting while providing a flexible work environment that can expand as needs evolve. Touch-down kiosks, colorful wayfinding elements and a state-of-the-art conference center make the campus accessible and ideally suited to hosting system-wide meetings and events.
