NEW YORK, NY—July 2016
Legacy Builders is pleased to announce the firm constructed multiple open-concept offices for WeWork in Miami and New York. WeWork is one of the largest co-working operators with more than 25,000 members at over 75 locations around the world.
Legacy Builders created custom individual storefront offices, exuding a modern yet welcoming atmosphere for the brand-new co-working spaces. Each floor of the WeWork projects has its own common area and a combination of private offices and communal work areas. There are also phone booths and conference rooms, some with tables and others designed as lounges.
“The layout was strategic and designed for interaction,” said John Bennardo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Legacy Builders. “We worked closely with the WeWork team as well as consultants and engineers to deliver a quality product that would enhance the co-working experience.”
Project elements include the installation of wood floors, lighting and electrical systems, HVAC and new plumbing throughout the spaces. Legacy Builders created community kitchens with custom cabinetry and backsplashes along with reception areas and bathrooms. Special-order wallpaper and local artwork also adorn the walls.
“With a passionate membership of startup entrepreneurs and small businesses, freelancers and service providers, the space itself needs to respond to that kind of passion,” said Miguel McKelvey, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of WeWork. “Legacy Builders constructed spaces that make people feel good and represent the WeWork brand.”
