James Center One: HCA

Located on the 21st floor of one of the James Center Towers in the heart of downtown Richmond, Virginia, healthcare provider HCA Capital Division’s new 15,000 square foot office pairs timeless furniture with modern office amenities. Architecture firm Wendel, with Interior Designer Audra Snyder and Knoll Dealer MOI Richmond, knew they would need to create an office that prioritized the health and wellness of HCA employees through ergonomic solutions, a clean, modern interior, and upgraded technology solutions in the 40 private offices, 20 workstations, conference rooms and lounges.

The move to downtown Richmond from the company’s old location brought with it the vibrancy and energy of a large metropolitan area. Capital Division wanted to reflect this on-the-go mentality by providing a more wellness-oriented workspace. Adjustable-height tables and chairs allow employees to move fluidly from sitting to standing throughout the day, while remaining fully supported when seated. In addition, glass paneling allows for natural light to permeate the space and offers views of the city. An architect on the project from Wendel commented “For HCA, we were delighted to have a space with lots of light which we wanted to fill the space. Large glass front offices helped the light fill the interior of the floorplate.”

Capital Division manages care facilities across four different states, and this combined with the new demands of the COVID 19 pandemic required flexible meeting spaces with technology integration to communicate seamlessly with remote team members. Pixel T-Leg Tables, Saarinen Executive Armless with Swivel Base and Life chairs furnish these upgraded conference rooms, allowing for spaces to be quickly and easily reconfigured.
