Mike Yazbec, President of J.C. Anderson, Inc., was one of the guest speakers at the 2014 BISNOW’s Chicago Creative Office Summit held January 30th. The event hosted more than 450 attendees to discuss open office floor plans and the emergence of “Creative Office” spaces.
As one of the construction experts, Mike shared his insights stating, “while the hard costs of construction has come down, those dollars have shifted to other line items in the project budget such as furniture and technology.” He provided budgets by zone and evidence of the variety of space types. And, when talking about LEED and its impact on the industry, he noted that these days sustainability is the cost of doing business, as building codes have evolved.
