Skender Completes 90,000-SF Office for Wilson Sporting Goods
Skender Construction recently completed a 90,000-square-foot headquarters relocation project for Wilson Sporting Goods, the American sports equipment manufacturer.
Located on the fifth and sixth floors of One Prudential Plaza, the sports-inspired, open-office workspace incorporates brick walls, a wood ceiling in the café and a communicating stair. The stair required Skender to remove a large section of the 6th floor slab and provide structural reinforcement around the new opening.
Wilson’s passion for sport is branded throughout the office with custom graphics of sponsored athletes and a café floor striped with different fields of play for football, basketball, golf and tennis. The reception lounge features custom metal display boxes with glass fronts and internal lighting that will hold vintage sporting artifacts mounted for display. The reception desk includes leather hides that were stitched together to resemble baseball stitching.
Skender, serving as general contractor, collaborated with architect Gensler and owner’s representative Newmark Knight Frank to successfully complete the build-out.
