First National Bank Omaha Tower Renovation

Omaha, Nebraska

1 million GSF

The Tower at First National Center was built to accommodate the First National Bank of Omaha offices in the heart of downtown. To create a more collaborative and healthy office environment for employees to return to work to, our team designed new technology systems for the renovation of the 45-story building.


  • Led the effort to bring management, technical staff, and departmental users together to create a new standard for meeting and collaborative spaces across the entire FNBO enterprise, yielding a commonality of UX (user experience), regardless of space type.
  • Introduced an Active-Learning andragogy to the corporate training and development instructors and designed several new technology-rich training spaces tailored to this new teaching method.
  • Re-imagined the client-facing spaces to boost engagement and foster Owner-Client partnership by leveraging immersive projection mapping, large-scale, direct view LED walls, architecturally embedded displays, and soundscapes.
  • Collaborated with the project architect and a specialty sculpture manufacturer to create a one-of-a-kind centerpiece on the marketing unit floor that incorporates a large, direct-view LED element.
