Highlights of the office building include zones for private offices, open workstations, and collaboration spaces over two floors. The first floor has an impressive two-story lobby with an open stair that encourages movement and accessibility to offices, conference and training rooms and a second floor fitness center. Opposite the main entry on the first floor, the café area features a lounge with fireplace, staff kitchen, and access to an outdoor terrace with views of the wooded site. Interiors maximize daylighting with large windows, exposed timber decking, painted steel and glulam beam ceilings.
Hooper’s legacy, values, and commitment to safety are featured throughout the building to reinforce the brand and attract the next generation workforce.
