Skender Completes ShopRunner HQ with 100% WiFi Capability

Skender, serving as interior construction manager, recently completed construction of ShopRunner’s new 25,000-square-foot corporate headquarters. ShopRunner, a Chicago-based, multi-retailer e-commerce start-up, has relocated to EQ Office’s 350 N. Orleans St. from its former space at 350 N. LaSalle.

To accommodate a newly-consolidated team, ShopRunner added numerous technologically forward features to its new office space. Among them is 100% WiFi capability, thereby eliminating the need for data cabling.

The open floor plan features a town hall space and large conference room that can combine to allow for all-hands meetings and events. The space also features three 98” televisions, and an audio-visual system that accommodates video conferencing as well as large presentations.

Skender collaborated with Partners by Design and ConopCo Project Management to complete the project in December 2018.
