Microsoft Parature Sixth Floor
This project was a high-end tenant fit-out encompassing one full floor and 19,750 sf for the Microsoft space located at Discovery Square. Some of the highlights of the project include a 23-foot-long overhead garage-style door on the sixth floor of the building, Xbox lounge (war room for Parature employees) with three writable walls and 65-inch monitors for meetings and team planning / brainstorming, a new open pantry area for employees, new teleconference rooms, phone rooms, writable walls, and glass throughout the space—all of which give the space an updated and modern atmosphere.
During construction, the team was challenged to connect the existing third floor LAN room to two new LAN rooms built on the fifth floor, without interrupting the network and servers. Additionally, a great deal of planning and effort went into getting the garage door into the space and making sure that it was structurally sound prior to installation. The final product is a high-end, efficient, and open space that Microsoft has provided for their new Parature employees.
