To initiate the process, NEC engaged CBRE’s Workplace Strategy team to develop a comprehensive space utilization plan based on employee surveys and executive feedback. The results delivered a space and location that will better serve the company’s clients, and provide a more efficient office layout that will increase employee productivity and engagement.
Included in the new space will be a 6,000-square-foot technology showcase and demo facility for client engagement, as well as a 5,000-square-foot research and development lab.
“The new space will align better with our mission as a leading technology firm,” said Todd Bouman, President & CEO at NEC Display Solutions. “It will provide a more modern, efficient office layout that will boost employee collaboration and spark innovation. I am especially excited about our new executive briefing center, which will enhance our engagement with partners and customers by showcasing real-world vertical applications and solutions.”
The firm is moving from 40,000 square feet in Itasca, Ill.
“Once built out, this will be a much more dynamic space for NEC, befitting a top-tier technology company,” said CBRE’s Diederich. “The addition of the client showcase room and the research and development lab will enhance the firm’s brand and capabilities, and the new office offers a more centrally-located headquarters in the heart of the bustling western-suburban business community.”
