Chesapeake Employers’ Insurance Company Headquarters
JMT Architecture, MEP, and Structural designed the complete interior reconfiguration and renovation, systems upgrades, and elevator addition for this four-story, 90,000SF headquarters building with three-level parking garage. Alterations included eliminating outer wall offices, leveling the sloped auditorium floor for use as HR department space, relocating computer network hub, converting electric systems to gas, and window wall upgrades (building is 95% glass) for utility efficiencies. Interior design services included programming, space planning, finishes, furniture and systems furniture, and construction documents. The lobby was totally redesigned for an atrium-like effect with polished slate walls, ceramic tile flooring, and frosted glass, granite, and cherry front desk. The project was phased in five sections, relocating 380 of the 400 employees within the building, while remaining fully operational.
