North American headquarters for Zurich won by Clayco, Goettsch Partners and CannonDesign

Zurich North America has entered into agreements with Clayco, Goettsch Partners and CannonDesign for the development and design of their North American headquarters in Schaumburg, situated on 40 acres at Meacham Road and I-90.

The new Zurich North American Headquarters is designed to reflect the company’s global reach and world-class stature. The architectural character of the 735,000 sq ft complex reinforces an image of reliability and success through its bold simplicity in form, a timeless material palette, and its commitment to sustainability.

Composed of three primary ‘bars’ that are offset and stacked, the arrangement creates unique spaces for collaboration, opens views of the surrounding landscape, optimises solar orientation for amenities, and provides programmatic flexibility not found in typical office buildings. The top ‘bar’ of the complex soars 11 storeys and cantilevers toward downtown Chicago, providing visual identity along the interstate while projecting the strength and future focus of the company.

Each firm will serve a role in developing, designing and/or building the various components of the campus. The development, design and construction of the headquarters will be led by Clayco, as developer and design-builder. The headquarters core and shell, along with the parking facility, will be designed by Goettsch Partners. The interior of the headquarters will be designed by CannonDesign.
