22squared is Wall Street Journal’s Workplace of the Day

22squared ATLANTA (Aug. 8, 2011) – Back in February, we highlighted the renovation work Carter’s Interiors team completed for 22squared, an advertising agency headquartered in Atlanta. Now the firm is receiving national attention for its newly renovated headquarters and is featured as the Wall Street Journal’s Workplace of the day.

In July 2009, 22squared hired Carter as its project manager to renovate its existing space at 1170 Peachtree. Senior Vice President, Nan Loudon and Senior Project Manager, Donna West led Carter’s Interiors project management team in a two-phase renovation of the agency’s headquarters.

“Carter was an instrumental partner during our office project – they provided invaluable counsel, direction, and project management of a complex and multi faceted project.  We would not have been successful with out Carter,” said Mike Grindell, EVP and Chief Administrative Officer of 22squared. “They provided experienced direction and management of everything – design, moves, construction, LEED, detail pricing management and furniture decisions and implementation.  Carter was a true partner and friend during our project.”

According to the article published online Sunday, the firm’s 50,000 square-foot office earned LEED Gold from the U.S. Green Building Council.  22squared is the first tenant in the Proscenium building that targeted LEED certification. Other highlights from the renovation include:


  • 360-degree panoramic views
  • Floors made from a middle-school gymnasium surface
  • Bright and colorful décor
  • 70 percent of the surfaces in the office are writable

Congratulations to our friends at 22squared for this prestigious recognition!
