Attendees particularly lauded the focus on natural lighting throughout the facilities, where 90% of office spaces boast windows, and the comprehensive technology upgrades that promise to keep classrooms and meeting rooms at the forefront of innovation.

Additionally, design was a major draw to the group, specifically the remodeling’s emphasis on accessibility while still staying true to the buildings’ architectural legacy.
