BlueCross BlueShield Centre

Omaha, Nebraska

BlueCross BlueShield of Nebraska wanted to consolidate operations from three different buildings into a single campus headquarters. The primary goal was to provide a flexible, pleasant working environment to complement human needs and activities, while considering future work-space requirements. The consolidated campus headquarters facility satisfied operational requirements and redefined the way business was conducted by implementing collaborative group spaces on each floor and strategically placed small work group spaces.

Interior finishes and furniture create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. The design included open and private offices, conference rooms, education and training areas, reception and waiting areas, support spaces, break rooms, a cafeteria, a wellness center and employee lounges. The campus site also includes a 1,195-space, three-story parking garage and surface parking for 240 cars. The facility achieved LEED Silver certification through the use of lighting, efficient mechanical systems and the use of local building materials.
