Zurich North America Taps Goettsch Partners, CannonDesign for Illinois Headquarters

30 December, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell


Zurich North America has selected Goettsch Partners and CannonDesign to design its new headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois. Designed to reflect the company’s global reach and image of reliability, the 735,000-sq.-ft. building comprises three primary levels, or “bars,” that are offset and stacked. The top bar rises 11 stories and cantilevers toward downtown Chicago. The formation of the bars allows for open views to the outdoors, optimal solar orientation, and spaces designed for flexibility and collaboration.

Goettsch Partners is responsible for designing the complex’s core and shell, as well as the parking facility, while CannonDesign will oversee interiors. Clayco is the project’s developer and design-builder.
