J.C. Anderson is pleased to announce that the firm has completed a 45,000 square foot office expansion and renovation for CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBG) at 700 Commerce Drive (Oak Brook Pointe) in Oak Brook, Illinois.

J.C. Anderson completed the expansion and build-out for CBRE’s Oak Brook office to accommodate the consolidation of its suburban workers to this one larger location. The new office incorporates CBRE’s Workplace360 design, a leading-edge approach to workplace strategy designed to promote flexibility, mobility and productivity through technology-enabled, 100-percent free-address and paperless offices.

The construction was completed on a fast-track schedule and included the elimination of enclosed offices, replacing them with a mix of open work stations, collaborative areas, small meeting rooms and larger conference rooms. The new space also features an IT help desk “genius bar,” a bar area, pantry, as well as a café.

The construction team for J.C. Anderson was led by Project Executive Anthony Douglas, Assistant Project Manager Adam Scheitel and Superintendent Marty Powers & Steve Perry. Gensler provided the architectural services and CBRE was the project manager for ownership.
