Understanding the correlation between training and sales, medical equipment manufacturer Medtronic put its training facility at center stage in its new 1,500-square-meter headquarters. The facility incorporates state-of-the-art AV equipment, including simultaneous translation, along with training and classrooms. Plush lounges and other spaces evoke a five-star hotel to appeal to visiting physicians. Office areas demonstrate flexibility with a single workstation adaptable to a variety of work styles. Gensler worked closely with the base-building contractor to incorporate tenant improvements into the building’s design, resulting in considerable cost savings for Medtronic.
