schneider electric headquarters
65,000 SQ FT
A global leader in energy management and automation, Schneider Electric took advantage of a unique opportunity to unify nearly 300,000 square feet across multiple local sites into one cutting-edge, collaborative space. By centralizing the team’s collective knowledge and experiences under one roof, the company embarked on a transformative journey to build a space that would help attract and retain top tier talent, create an environment to invigorate internal collaboration, and meaningfully highlight Schneider Electric’s continued investment within the community.
After a 12-month construction process, this vision was brought to reality by transforming an abandoned Sam’s Club warehouse space into a 65,000 square foot, state-of-the-art electrical R&D center featuring labs focused on Artificial Intelligence, industrial manufacturing, materials development, intelligent building systems and intelligent security. This novel project aimed to develop a model the rest of the company can emulate moving forward and will set the standard for the company’s “new ways of working”.
COLLABORATION DURING PRECONSTRUCTION
Throughout preconstruction, Barringer excelled in driving on-site plan reviews to drive efficiency in design and reduce mid-project design changes. This enabled the space to be designed to save over $700k while still meeting all functional requirements. .
