Case Study: HQ Upgrade Results In Employees Working In Office More Than Required

Pittsburgh, PA

Atlantic Engineering Services had been in the same space for 25 years, with our lease in Center City Tower ending in early 2023. We had little concept of how complex and time-consuming the efforts to find a new home would be. Carrie did a great job of streamlining the process for us, taking our search committee on a step by step approach to evaluating different options and determining that 11 Stanwix would be the best location. Our landlord worked hard and contributed significantly to help with our relocation costs, thanks to Carrie, and we are very happy with the new office location.
