Today's computerized work environments require flexible space layouts supported by complex mechanical and electrical systems. van Zelm Heywood & Shadford works closely with the client to create spaces that offer an attractive and productive work environment reflecting the occupant's needs.

We offer core-and-shell, tenant fit-out design, and extensive base building improvements to support new or expanded use. Improvements in energy efficiency, indoor air quality, code compliance, and interior lighting are often part of building renovation and expansion projects. We also address specialized systems designs for backup and clean power, quality lighting and dimming, reliable power and cooling for 24/7 computer centers, power for integrated furniture systems, security and supplemental fire protection.
