Skender Construction has completed construction on a new two-floor office space for PSAV, a global event technology service provider. The 75,000-square-foot space at 5100 River Road in Schiller Park, Illinois features a bright, open design to encourage teamwork and collaboration.
The design utilizes natural light and high-end finishes for a warm, modern feel. Open work stations run along the windowed outer walls. Conference rooms and private offices are located in the space’s interior and feature full glass fronts to capture natural light. Ceilings were raised and partially opened to create a sense of openness and visual appeal. The main café includes large booths for impromptu gatherings.
An internal stair, a major design feature, connects the office’s two floors. The custom staircase is slightly curved, to mirror the curved outer wall of the building. The nontraditional shape required close collaboration between trade partners, suppliers and structural engineers to fabricate each piece in sequence and to stay on schedule.
The new space in Schiller Park is PSAV’s corporate office, which has been housing more than 200 employees since its move in July 2015.
Savills Studley represented the tenant, PSAV, Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) provided the architecture and design services, Sentinel Technologies was the technology consultant and ESD provided the mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineer services.
Brokers involved were Jonathan Metzl and Steve LaKind.
