Nokia consolidated more than 2,300 North Texas employees with the construction of their new North American Headquarters in the Cypress Waters development. Designed by CallisonRTKL, this office incorporates bright color, extensive collaborative open workspace and heavy specialty lighting including cast, directional and accent lights. The use of specialty back-painted glass and custom millwork pieces create privacy without the confines typical of enclosed offices. The most unique ceiling element involved the installation of custom European fabric over the 20-foot lobby ceiling.
Each of the four floors was completed simultaneously without phasing to expedite the schedule, and the total project square footage was occupied by the tenant on the same day, requiring extensive coordination with all project team members, including third-party vendors.
K2 delivered consistently on all fronts. Performing work in an occupied building on multiple floors creates its own issues which K2 recognized early and solved effortlessly. They gave us timely information to make the best decision for the project and direction when needed.
