Autodesk challenged KlingStubbins and Tocci Building Companies to not only create a new home for the Autodesk AEC division in an innovative and expressive space, but also to reinvent the design and construction process with an innovative Integrated Project Delivery (IDP) agreement enabled with the latest Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools.

The functional project program included 55,000 SF of open workstations, private offices, collaborative spaces, and support spaces for the Autodesk staff, and a 5,000 SF Customer Briefing Center with a gallery and briefing rooms for Autodesk customers.

The project is a registered LEED® Platinum project. Sustainable design features include selecting a LEED® Gold Certified base building, water and energy efficiency measures that reduce domestic water and energy consumption by over 30%, recycled non-toxic construction materials, C&D waste recycling, and interior planning that provides views to the outside and natural daylighting for 100% of the workspaces.

The design solution expresses Autodesk’s mission and values by exposing and featuring the building systems. A floor opening visually connects the activities on all three floors and provides a dramatic demonstration for Autodesk visitors. Open workspaces and glass conference rooms provide vital connection and encourage collaboration. Open ceilings expose the functional building structural and mechanical systems as significant design features.
