Verizon's Magnetic Field
As one of Verizon’s magnet locations, which are convenient, flexible workspaces designed to serve the changing needs of nearby employees, the company’s Piscataway office was recently redesigned using Verizon’s workplace standards. The 40,000 square foot renovation on the building’s third floor includes a pantry, a refurbished full-service cafeteria, a new fitness center and many open collaboration areas with various seating configurations, casual meeting spaces, bar height meeting/storage areas and video conference tables. Additional design improvements in common areas including the lobby were also included.
NELSON was responsible for the interior design and MEP engineering work, including upgrades to the existing HVAC system. Many of the efforts focused on the need to accommodate the expansion of Verizon’s IT group. This required changes to private offices and conference rooms, the addition of new work stations and the critical need for flexible space.
The Verizon team has recognized the new Piscataway space as a “crown jewel” among recent Verizon projects and praised “NELSON’s successful job in creatively using the Verizon Guidelines ‘kit of parts’ to create an exciting space.”
Since the redesign, Verizon has been successful in attracting the right people to its magnet space.
