May 2011

Speakers: Ted Heisler, Principal, Interior Architecture & Design, Ware Malcomb Dennis Potts, Dennis Potts Project Management While much discussion surrounds the export of local standards, one company demonstrates the successful implementation of a European standard brought to the United States. When Henkel consolidated three of its North America Electronics Division facilities into a consolidated Innovation Center facility, it became one of the first U.S. office locations to implement Henkel's European Corporate Standards. By incorporating corporate office with laboratory, manufacturing and research innovation spaces while staying aligned with its culture of innovation and manufacturing excellence, Henkel exemplified an organization's ability to successfully undergo significant changes to office standards, workplace strategy, and collaborative environments. Panelists will share all dimensions of the real estate transaction, from inception of lease strategy through move in. Learn about the project's goals, process, outcomes, team approach, and tactics for success in creating a workplace model that enhances collaboration and creates an improved environment promoting a culture of pride and engagement among employees.
