ARIDO shows off new headquarters at Open House

Published by Julia Salerno, October 06, 2010.

"The new corporate headquarters has been designed with members' needs in mind and will serve us for many years to come," says ARIDO President Theo West-Parks. "We now have the meeting space and training facilities to allow us to hold seminars and professional development activities. The facilities are also available to members, if they want to meet with clients or hold corporate strategy sessions. Members also have access to fully wired touchdown workstations, if they need a place to work for an hour, a day or a week."

The space was designed by modo to meet LEED CI Silver specifications. Corporate donations figured prominently in the materials and furnishing of the new headquarters. Nienkamper and Keilhauer furnished the board room, while Teknion provided the staff workstations. Knoll provided antenna workstations, credenzas and chairs. Inscape provided the hotelling stations. All countertops throughout the space were provided by Cambria.

"We are really excited about our new space. Our office is part of a mixed use residential/commercial condominium complex in Liberty Village, an area currently undergoing an exciting revitalization. Thanks to modo, the construction team and our corporate sponsors, our office is a showcase for the interior design profession," says Susan Wiggins, executive director.

Engineers for the project were Smith and Anderson; the construction team was Rae Brothers Limited. ARIDO and IDC are grateful to the industry manufacturers and suppliers for their generous donations and support. View images of the Open House event.
