Located in Ann Arbor, MI, the new corporate headquarters and training facility for BELFOR Franchise Group houses a growing family of franchised property restoration businesses. Serving as a home to corporate staff, a welcome center to potential franchise owners, and an educational facility to franchise trainees, this project successfully distills the spectrum of programmatic requirements into one cohesive and dynamic workspace. The three distinct user groups share the main hospitality area at the heart of the facility with specific work/training areas located off this space. Three design and construction phases have now completed the offices and training center into a cohesive whole for selling, training, and servicing property restoration franchisees within an environment that conveys a warm hospitality and fresh clean look. The current phase completed an 8000 SF interior buildout within this 26,000 SF commercial office building, along with selective remodeling of existing adjacent spaces. Construction included the addition and relocation of the entry from the east end to the center of the south side, along with executive offices, a lecture-style training room, a hands-on training space, and an emergency support call center.
