AlternaThe vision for Alterna Savings’ new headquarters in the Canadian capital of Ottawa began to take shape in 2014 with a goal to honor its history, while enabling the enterprise to transition to a more collaborative work environment. Seizing the opportunity to lease four floors of a new LEED® Silver building, Alterna left behind a maze of corridors, private offices and meager communal space. A modern facility in a lively urban neighborhood would now allow Alterna to close the gap between its work practices and its physical workspace.

Harley DavidsonFounded in the first decade of the 20th century, Harley-Davidson is a brand with a 107-year history and a legendary image that inspires a strong brand community. William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson started producing motorcycles in a small wooden shed built by Davidson’s father and as production grew, built a more substantial brick factory on Chestnut Street, now renamed W. Juneau Avenue, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The site remains the location of Harley-Davidson headquarters, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
