Convergint Pleasanton

The Convergint project at 5860 W Las Positas Blvd., Pleasanton, CA, showcases a comprehensive tenant improvement effort spearheaded by Banducci Associates Architects. This endeavor took the existing space—comprised of two combined suites—and transformed it into a modern office and warehouse setting that aligns with contemporary design and functionality standards.

Preparation and Demolition:

The project began with extensive demolition, clearing out old walls, doors, ceilings, and interior finishes. This phase also involved removing old mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) components to make way for new systems.

Architectural and Interior Design:

Led by Banducci Associates Architects, the new design aimed to create a flexible and dynamic work environment. The office areas were designed with open floor plans to foster collaboration, while private meeting rooms and executive offices were incorporated for confidential and administrative functions.

MEP Upgrades:
Upgrades to heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) were significant, ensuring a fully operable system that meets modern standards and provides comfort in all areas of the building. The electrical systems were overhauled to include efficient lighting and power systems that support modern office equipment and computing needs.

Finishes and Aesthetics:
The design introduced a mix of materials and textures to create a visually engaging space. Features include energy-efficient lighting, sustainable carpeting, and modern office furniture that complements the architectural elements. The color palette was chosen to reflect the company’s branding while maintaining a neutral backdrop conducive to various work activities.

Technology and Security:
The office was outfitted with state-of-the-art security systems, including access controls and surveillance cameras, ensuring a secure environment for all staff and visitors.

Compliance and Accessibility:
The entire buildout was conducted in accordance with the 2022 California Building Code, ensuring all aspects of the design from fire safety to energy efficiency were up to date. Accessibility was a priority, with all designs meeting the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, ensuring inclusivity for all potential users of the space.

The transformation of the Convergint office in Pleasanton represents a significant investment into creating a workplace that not only meets contemporary standards but also anticipates the needs of tomorrow’s workforce. This project stands as a testament to thoughtful architectural planning and a commitment to quality and sustainability.

Corsair Global Headquarters

[The ‘Third Space’ is real.] It existed before the pandemic, exploded in growth during the pandemic, and has quickly become the harbinger for the creation of new ideas and worlds. Unbridled imagination and opportunity at your fingertips.

And the tips of your fingers, and your eyes, and your ears, and your persona is where CORSAIR lives.

Understanding the desire for an enhanced user and lifestyle experience when perched behind a computer screen is at the heart of their creations and what they exemplify in the products that they produce. Their space – their new headquarters created inside an existing, typical, non-descript 2 story office building – needed to be transformed into who they are and what they do. It could not be just another pretty office of another tech company but needed to be an embodiment of the energy and excitement their products create for their customers.

[Shape, materiality, and light sculpted to connect dynamically impactful experiences.] It starts with simple. A simple material palette of blacks, whites, and natural tones accented by changes in reflectivity from matte to high gloss. Soft, fluid shapes that bend and fold from one into another. Customizable lighting integrated and tucked into strategic locations that accentuate the movement and changing experience. To describe the space is to describe the products, and each to embody the company.

[Connection to one another. Connection to customers. Connection to community.] Corsair’s Headquarters grew from a concept that strategically placed “Nodes” – areas that could dynamically address quick interaction, meeting, brainstorming, gaming, teaching, and learning – at the base of every work group development. The ‘Nodes’ would connect groups of people from within one department as well as each department to the other and rather than define what function could be performed, they would allow for a variety of functions to meet the needs of the group through energetic design and modifiable furniture. Though spread across 2 floors and a winged footprint, the Nodes would visually and experientially connect the company together – metaphorically mirroring Corsair’s relationship to its loyal customer following.

Additionally, keeping to a strict budget and sustainable footprint were of paramount importance to the success of the project. With a budget of slightly more than $100 per square foot, modification and adaptation of existing elements as well as creative use of standard materials was necessary. This helped both the budget and the sustainable message ingrained in Corsair’s corporate policy by necessitating that much of what existed be kept out of landfills. This also helped to shave the way for enough funds to install a solar array across the entire rooftop of the existing building, cutting the non-renewable power used within the space by approximately 45%.

[This is the power of their workplace.] A space, multi-faceted in functional opportunity, intertwined with atmosphere and experience unmatched by other environments – that fosters creativity and excitement around the company, its culture, and its people. It’s a space that speaks to the creation and the creators.
It’s the reason not to work from home.
