J.C. Anderson (JCA) completed a 59,000-square-foot renovation project for Ipsos at Tishman Speyer’s The Franklin, 222 W. Adams St. in Chicago’s West Loop. France-based Ipsos relocated its Chicago office from 222 Riverside to 222 W. Adams for more space.
Construction included the addition of a User Experience facility, collaboration spaces, offices and open seating. Features also include a cabana and game room with neon signage, two ‘gathering stairs’ as huddle areas and multiple preserved moss living wall installations.
“We had great collaboration with the Ohio-based architect Champlin on this project,” said Matt Kantro, senior project manager. “Communication with all parties helped JCA successfully deliver on all design elements that bring the space to life.”
The construction team for JCA is led by Kantro and Superintendent Mike Diduch. Champlin Architecture provided the architectural services and Cushman & Wakefield’s I-Lee Hwa and Nick Ferro provided project management and consulting services for ownership.
