Sarcon led this project to success using a design-build methodology to accelerate the schedule and best manage the budget. Located within Santa Fe's historic district, the interior of the Firestone Building was remodeled to support the office headquarters of Descartes Labs and its growing team of applied scientists. Traditional architectural elements of the former bank lobby are repaired and refinished to lend decor to repurposed spaces for individual work and group meetings. Managed by the company chef, a full commercial kitchen serves the health and welfare of staff. A new blackened steel stair atop wood platforms was constructed where the teller line once stood giving direct connection to the second floor.
