Project Description
The Fitness International corporate headquarters relocated into three stories of the 3161 Michelson building, a premier Orange County office building. The 77,000 square foot office space needed to fit into an existing core and shell environment, which included previously built mechanical and electrical utilities. Working closely with architects at Gensler and within the stringent requirements of the landlord, Howard Building Corporation's team coordinated the utility and structural requirements with the building engineer and executed a seamless transition into the space.

To match the premier building environment and the desire of the client to infuse a certain level of quality into its brand, high-end materials and clean design details were executed throughout the space. A marble and wood veneer reception desk, marble flooring, and custom wood panels were installed in the reception area. Large scale acoustical tiles, tiered gypsum board ceilings, and recessed linear light fixtures punctuated the ceiling design. In conference rooms, videoconference equipment was installed and large LCD screens display coordinated graphics throughout the public spaces. Large scale graphics were installed, further reinforcing the company's brand and providing wayfinding throughout the space.
