SATELLITE CORPORATE OFFICE
In late 2014, Secura Insurance of Appleton, WI leased a vacant property on the city’s south side to accommodate its growing employee population. At the time the lease agreement was entered, the property was a brick building shell, with no delineated space and a gravel floor. The intent was to relocate approximately 200 of the company’s employees to the new location within a year.
Berners-Schober saw the empty shell as an opportunity to transform this building into a welcoming professional environment. A new entryway greets employees and guests into the facility. The warm color palette is accented with woodgrains. The facility includes 140 open office workstations, 20 private offices, three conference rooms, and several collaborative work areas. A newly furnished break room and kitchenette area doubles as a large group meeting and presentation space. A private patio was created to allow the employees to enjoy the outdoors during the summer.
