County of Orange Administration North - Building 14
G|M Business Interiors furnished the interiors of the County of Orange's new 254,000 six-story Building 14 office tower.
G|M Business Interiors partnered with LPA, Swinerton, and Griffin Structures on the County of Orange’s new Building 14. This six-story, 254,000 square-foot office tower features an astonishing 554 workstations, 223 private offices, several conference and training rooms, and a large public meeting room.
One of the primary objectives of this project was to improve the County of Orange’s operational efficiency by unifying departments into a central, all-service location. The building, which is right next to Building 16 is the new county Hall of Administration headquarters for the county government and includes a public meeting room for the Board of Supervisors and new offices for the supervisors and their staff. In addition to the supervisors’ offices, the new building houses the County Executive Office and those of County Counsel, human resources, OC Community Resources, and Health Care Agency.
The new building features open floor plans and much more natural light than the county’s previous headquarters. The project was also designed to inspire collaboration and teamwork. By pulling private offices toward the center of the building, employee workstations are located along exterior windows to both improve long-term flexibility and provide natural daylight and views for all occupants. All private offices and workstations were outfitted with ergonomic chairs and height-adjustable desks to put employee wellness at the forefront.
The Building 14 project was led by G|M Account Executive, Victoria Nadolski and was a huge collaborative effort between LPA, Swinerton, and Griffin Structures.
"I feel very grateful to have been able to work alongside LPA, Swinerton, and Griffin on both the Building 16 and Building 14 projects," said Nadolski. "There are so many details that go into projects like this and to see them come to life is truly an awesome experience."
