Cover story: Teledesic Broadband Center

The Teledesic Broadband Center, in Bellevue, Washington, is one example of this new office paradigm. Designed by the architecture firm NBBJ of Seattle in conjunction with mechanical engineering firm Arup of San Francisco, the project is an adaptive reuse of an industrial building to create the new headquarters for Teledesic, a company that is building a global broadband communications network.

The design of the 70,000-square foot space incorporates many new workplace features, including a high loft-style ceiling, an open workstation plan, an open mezzanine, and an underfloor air distribution (UFAD) system that allows occupants to control the airflow to their individual workstations.

A field study of the Teledesic offices was conducted during the winter months of 2000/2001 to gain both quantitative and qualitative insight into the building*s performance. (More......)
