Office Depot Global Headquarters
Boca Raton, FL
When Office Depot decided to relocate their global headquarters to Boca Raton, FL, they asked EDI to design the data/voice/video structured cabling and audio-visual systems for the new facility. The new headquarters consists of three separate but connected 5-story buildings. The three buildings were designed simultaneously. In addition, there is a separate central utility plant and parking garage. Office Depot’s global headquarters was awarded LEED EB Gold by the USGBC.
EDI provided infrastructure documents, construction documents, bidding management, and construction observation for these systems.
