When Spectrum Health decided to move 500 of its employees in the Information SystemsÂ department to downtown Grand Rapids, Franklin Partners LLC (owner/developer of 25 Ottawa Ave NW) had the perfect location. First Companies was hired to complete the renovations that included floors 2-6, with the first phase of floors 5 and 6 shown here. Spectrum Health was seeking a high-amenity, urban location toÂ use as aÂ recruiting tool to attract and retain top talent. The â€śclass Aâ€ť office space provides about 80,000 square feet of open, collaborative workspace with high ceilings, timber structure, exposed columns, and masonry walls.
â€śFirst Companies has done an outstanding job on the Spectrum project. The schedule mandated sub-contractors be on time with people and materials, and everyone has excelled in their respective tasks. Material issues were worked through in a timely manner and Spectrum is delighted with the finished product.â€ť Â Â Gary Tamminga, Project Manager, Franklin Partners
