ABB Office + Research Center

Bowen led programming and conceptual design for a new 450-person regional office for ABB, a global leader in power and automation technologies. The relocation and new facilities reflects an in-depth programming process?—involving input from 25 distinct departments?—?through which Bowen understood ABB’s logistical needs and corporate culture. The design implements ABB’s international, company-wide “Workplace 2020” initiative, which centers on new, activity-based working concepts, open work spaces, and collaborative environments. The new floor plan?features a combination of workstations grouped by department, flex spaces, conference rooms, and labs.

Bowen worked with ABB to fit-out design options for renovation existing space and renovating at a new location before all partied determined new construction was the best option. Bowen created a schematic design package for both the exterior shell and the interior layouts and served as Owner’s Representative during the Design-Build.
