September 2022 Project Spotlight | SoftwareONE North American Headquarters

September 28, 2022

SoftwareONE, a leading global provider of software and cloud technologies solutions, is relocating its North American Headquarters Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. The office space is located on the second floor of the historic Dye House and focuses on employee-centric elements to increase collaboration and engagement. The project includes the remodel and build-out of the entire floor, totaling 17,000 SF.

The space will feature an open environment fitted with high-end AV features, lighting, and furnishes with about three-quarters of the floor dedicated to office and employee collaboration areas. New amenities include multiple open office spaces, enclosed offices, collaboration and conference rooms, and training rooms. The design also features a high-end kitchen and break room, a game room and multi-purpose room, along with a new reception, lounge area, and fireplace.

Initial construction began in July 2022 with selective demolition down to the existing industrial pre-cast columns in order to create a completely open space. New construction includes a new floor layout and installation of an HVAC system that’s retrofit to the building’s central system. Other substantial work includes installation of a new electrical system with modern fixtures which includes a Connectrac System to run wiring and connections to each individual workspace. The team also installed minor plumbing upgrades and modifications including a new water heater and pump. A new kitchen also required installation of appliance connections. Other work includes the remodel of the existing common bathrooms and new construction of a single, gender-neutral bathroom and a mother’s room.

Due to construction activity in an occupied building, the team maintains a strict site logistics plan to minimize disruption to surrounding tenants, mitigate risk and noise pollution, and adhere to owner specifications for work on the historic building. The team is also using the third floor as a staging area to temporarily house procured furniture and equipment so as to not impede construction or incumber other occupied areas of the building. The project is nearing completion with scheduled tenant occupancy in November.

We would like to recognize our project team for their hard work, adaptability, and dedication which has made this project a success so far. The team includes Mitch Berti, Assistant Project Manager, and Tim Williamson, Superintendent. We would also like to thank SoftwareONE and RINKA for selecting Greenfire as their trusted construction partner and the building owner, Founders 3 Real Estate Services, for making themselves available to our requests.
