Firm Foundation – A New HQ for McGuire and Hester

All News

FORGE designs a new headquarters for McGuire and Hester that honors the past and ushers in the future.

The new two-story, 23,000-square-foot headquarters serves as a brick-and-mortar tribute to McGuire and Hester’s nearly century-long past and future success. Designed in collaboration with the company’s employees, the two-toned, masonry and steel building with copper accents blends McGuire
and Hester’s deep history in construction with modern elements that support today’s company culture.

“While our clients are always at the forefront of the design and construction processes, this particular project had an exceptionally high volume of involved parties, including a design team from McGuire and Hester dedicated to fulfilling the needs and meeting the expectations of every employee,” says Terri Emery, Senior Project Architect at FORGE.

“To manage all of the input and streamline responsibilities” she continues, “our internal team established points of contact for the various elements of the process, and honed in on our signature ability to listen and understand the client’s underlying goals. Ultimately, we were successful in delivering an exceptional project that exceeded our client’s expectations.”
