Janney Montgomery Scott|
18,075 square feet - Interior architecture for a financial services firm
This interior architecture project focused on a tenant fit-out for Pittsburgh’s downtown office of Janney Montgomery Scott, which included a move from the US Steel Tower to One PPG Place. A primary goal of the project was to increase communication, productivity and transparency between financial consultants and staff.
In 2005, Janney Montgomery Scott acquired this downtown Pittsburgh office as part of a merger with Parker/Hunter. Relocating to another corporate office building was a monumental decision for the financial services firm given that Parker/Hunter’s headquarters had been located in the US Steel Tower for more than 40 years.
As a part of the move, Janney was able to transform their corporate image with a new standards rollout to branch offices, which included:
1. An open reception area with access to a large conference room,
2. Branding opportunities,
3. New office and workstation standards,
4. Finish standards,
5. Greater visibility of employees, including glass wall offices, which emulate the facade of One PPG Place.
