From visioning kick-off meetings to actual move-in, DBI worked with Emergent BioSolutions Inc. (EBSI) on every aspect of its new corporate headquarters. DBI successfully maintained EBSI’s high level of corporate professionalism while transforming the workspace from an enclosed, non-windowed office into an open, collaborative, and functional environment that infused the company’s scientific brand into all aspects of the space. A 30’ x 30’ opening was created within the fifth-floor slab to allow for a two-story reception and atrium space, a feature that connects the work flow of the fourth and fifth floors via the new monumental staircase.
