GBD was asked to move the Les Schwab headquarters from Prineville to Bend and to create a state-of-the-art facility to attract and retain professional talent. Our solution: A building with high, exposed ceilings, beautiful views of the Central Oregon high desert, standardized workstations, and plenty of natural light in internal spaces.
The high-performance building is a rich and healthy workspace. The fresh air, under floor air distribution, direct/in-direct lighting, photovoltaic array for generating electricity, and stormwater management system are just a few of the sustainable features that make people feel good in this building.
The Les Schwab offices were the first parcel in the 1,500-acre Juniper Ridge master plan. Phase I includes a 120,000 sq. foot, three-story office building with 350 parking stalls; GBD completed the headquarters project in January 2009.
