When Workiva decided to build their new corporate headquarters in Ames, IA, they selected Bluestone Engineering for the Mechanical, Electrical and Technology systems design. An innovative and rapidly-growing company specializing in on-line SEC filings, Workiva wanted to create a dynamic team-oriented workplace for their employees. Some features of Workiva’s new home include: cafeteria featuring a stone pizza oven, state-of-the-art fitness center, and an open, modern design for the office space.
This project is an expansion of Workiva’s existing corporate headquarters. The expansion included open office space, meeting rooms, and a new entrance atrium. The project delivery method was a hybrid approach where the construction team was brought on early during design, allowing extensive collaboration between the contractors and design team. One of the unique features of this building is the low profile access floor system incorporated in the open office areas. This system allows for greater flexibility when modular furniture is reconfigured.
