J.C. Anderson Completes Aon Center Build-Out for Ad Agency Merge

J.C. Anderson has completed a headquarters build-out for media and creative agency Merge at the Aon Center. The firm selected J.C. Anderson to complete a renovation to its Chicago office to modernize its existing space, while also increasing efficiencies.

The project consisted of building-out the space to create an open-office concept with huddle areas. With offices in Chicago, Boston and Atlanta, Merge is the result, fittingly, of a merger among five agencies.

“The MERGE personnel were genuine, appreciative, and extremely helpful along the way, so that we could all collaboratively capture their vision for the new Chicago office and ultimately deliver a space that exceeded expectations,” said J.C. Anderson project manager Michael Dunn.

The construction team for J.C. Anderson was led by Dunn, project executive Joe Maguire and superintendent Joe Rojas. Perkins + Will provided the architectural services, and JLL provided project management services.
