Fifth Third Bank HeadquartersDetroit, MI

Fifth Third Bank selected the One Woodward building for its Detroit headquarters. Sachse Construction performed a selective demolition on the 25th floor, and a complete gut of the 26th floor. The Sachse team worked vigorously to complete all the renovations to the historical 31,200 square foot space. Unlike traditional banking headquarters, Fifth Third Bank’s new suite is modern and vibrant: bright colors accent the collaborative spaces which consist of open desks and pod chairs, replacing the 60 private offices utilized in their former headquarters. Additionally, the space promotes both a greener and healthier place to work for employees. In lieu of having private offices, employees have designated lockers for their belongings, and can decide their working station each day they get into work. This helped reduced the amount of paper printed in the office by two-thirds, and also empowers employees to select a work area based on their preference for the day. Additionally, computer stations are mounted to treadmills to promote health and productivity within the organization.
