This year (2023) marks the 5-year anniversary of BWBR’s Omaha office, so it’s only appropriate that we celebrate the milestone in style with an amazing, custom new space. These past five years, we’ve seen our team, client list, and connection to the community grow beyond expectations, and we’re so excited for this next step in our journey.
“This move allows us to remain grounded in the fabric of the community while increasing our capacity for collaboration. I look forward to the opportunity to gather together physically, exchange ideas, and spur our creativity in service of our clients — there’s nothing better than being with these talented folks,” says Scott Kirchner, BWBR Principal and Omaha Office Leader.
As of February 15th, BWBR has officially transitioned to our new location in the Blackstone Plaza building in the Blackstone District following a build-out focused on creating a collaborative space to support our staff, our project work, and our ongoing commitment to flexible work environments. The new setup includes 18 workstations, a large meeting room and huddle rooms with hybrid-supportive AV technology, focus rooms, a work café, an ideation lounge, and more.
“We are excited to have a new space to inspire our work, gather together to share ideas and knowledge, and support our flexible work culture. Blackstone Plaza is a fantastic building with many amenities for our Omaha team members. We look forward to thriving together as a team and enhancing the work we do for our amazing clients,” says Stefnee Trzpuc, BWBR Principal and Operations Leader.
Since expanding to Omaha, BWBR has designed healthcare and higher education projects for a variety of local institutions including University of Nebraska at Kearney, Providence Medical Center, Southeast Community College, CHI Health St. Elizabeth, as well as clients in the broader region such as Clarke County and Mahaska Health.
Stephanie McDaniel, BWBR President and CEO, says, “Our Nebraska clients are doing amazing things in our core markets of healthcare, higher education, science + tech, workplace, and justice, and we’re so thrilled to support them in that work. We’re also excited about the great talent in the Omaha area, and the ways our fantastic Omaha team continues to support the strategic growth of our firm.”
Thanks to everyone whose hard work made this move possible, and cheers to a beautiful new space!
