Pekin Insurance Corporate Headquarters Interior Renovation

Pekin, IL

Solving a True Design Challenge

The entire office renovation at Pekin Insurance's corporate headquarters proved to be a true design challenge. We had to balance the new updates with the original mid-century building, as well as the two building additions that are from the 1980s. The renovation included an upgrade of finishes, lighting, restrooms, and furniture. We incorporated a new work café, improved conference and training rooms, and created additional collaborative areas throughout the headquarters.

The main public entrance also received a major renovation. A new revolving door was added, as well as featured openings to allow daylighting. New stair and glass handrails, the encapsulation of dark brick walls with new wall surfaces, an improved flow of public interaction, and added secure transaction at the reception desk were all designed into the main entrance.
