As building owners, operators, and developers adapt to a hybrid work model, creating a welcoming office space is more important than ever. In an article for Propmodo’s Perspectives series, ESD now Stantec Senior Acoustics Project Manager Scott Hamilton shares his views on the evolution of the open office and why acoustics play such a critical role to the health, comfort, and productivity of returning workers.

When it decided to move into the Willis Tower, ESD wanted to focus on designing its new space into a healthier and more energy-efficient environment by pursuing Fitwel and LEED v4 certification.
Those attending the Greenbuild are invited to tour ESD’s new global headquarters during the “Designing for Yourself, A&E Office Environments” tour on Saturday, Nov. 17 beginning at 1 p.m. Led by Tim Zelazny and Samantha Davidson of ESD Energy+Eco, the tour will discuss the challenges that were overcome, the utility incentive dollars awarded for exceeding code with LEED, and the unique products installed to increase the project’s environmental benefits.
