FS Investments, a leading manager of alternative investment funds was growing rapidly and out grown their existing facility. The headquarters relocation to a new build to suit facility at the Philadelphia Navy Yard provided the opportunity to create a workplace that reflected the FSI brand and culture where there is a strong emphasis on performance and wellness.
In lieu of private offices, each employee has a sit-to-stand workstation with seated privacy to provide a level of privacy for individual focused work with easy access to enclosed huddle and meeting rooms. The design, full of natural light and transparency to enclosed spaces, promotes interaction and provides a collaborative and healthy environment. A communal ‘town center’ on each floor provides a gathering area for impromptu gatherings, idea sharing and a spot to decompress. The emphasis on wellness is supported by a multi-use exercise facility, personal trainers and a cafeteria with a nutritionist as head chef.
