Yes, our new office building is amazing – c’mon, it’s a synchronized design by Strang.

Located within the Capitol East District of Madison, we join a revitalized downtown neighborhood experiencing a renaissance of built environments, both new and adaptive reuse. Each of these projects is uniquely special – a tip of our hat to the teams who brought them forward. Yet even with their wow factor, the built environments are merely a backdrop to what’s really going on over here.

Observe keenly. In our new space, we are at the center of Madison’s augmented urbanism, a combination of experiences on a connected human scale. We’re embraced by housing, enterprise, entertainment and recreation, just steps away. As architects, designers and planners, it doesn’t get much better.

Here you will find a fusion of industries and services, some well-established, others forging exciting new fronts in commerce, healthcare, the arts, sports, energy, entertainment, hospitality, software and retail. Here too, you’ll find a lively mosaic of humankind, urban pioneers empowering an energy of renewal and resolve. Amongst us exists a kindred spirit of curiosity which ignites innovation, and a preference for collaboration that galvanizes confidence.

Now, this is not solely about reclamation of space. More importantly, it’s a reclamation of place and possibilities – for commerce and community, alike. It’s about pride in potential. Frankly, it’s about locking arms with contemporaries and neighbors, then stepping forward to help realize the fullest potential of our businesses, neighborhoods and surrounding community, together. You see, we believe a strong and vibrant city centre benefits the entire Greater Capitol Region. Our structures, places and spirits rise together. We also believe the Cap East Corridor is an exceptional, distinctive place, and we are better for being here.

Yes of course, the buildings themselves are special. However, they are but one factor within a larger equation. This renaissance includes attitude, invention and revitalization. What really matters most are the people who occupy these spaces and our Cap East neighbors and neighborhoods. Remember, people, places and spaces . . . in that order.

As engineers, architects, and designers, our role extends far beyond just blueprints. The comfort and safety of the building’s occupants is an essential consideration in design. Great office design will install measures to address potential work hazards and keep staff and data safe from the very beginning of the design process. In other words, prevention is the best policy.
While earlier we focused primarily on low voltage design, now it’s time to dive deeper into its close relation: audio/visual (AV) design. AV design is the process of understanding the communication and entertainment needs and goals of a client and thoughtfully developing technology systems to address and meet them.
When planning your new or renovated buildings, the subject of low voltage systems–the backbone of building technology–needs to occur right away rather than be left behind as an afterthought. Proper advanced planning can ensure your low-voltage systems help you operate at maximum levels of performance. And that’s more important now than ever.
