COVID-19 Update: All ongoing projects remain active with precautions in place according to OSHA and CDC guidelines. Staff across our five offices are staying safe by working remotely or by wearing masks and practicing social distancing while working on-site.

The Korte Company provides tenant improvement, including architecture, interior design and construction for office building owners and tenants throughout the U.S. Our team has completed more than 2,000 construction projects since 1958, including many tenant finishes. This is some of our finest work.

When the American Association of Orthodontists planned to reorganize their departments to create a more efficient workflow in their aging facility, they called upon The Korte Company to make it happen. Their decision was easy, as we had just completed a project for the American Board of Orthodontics in the same building, giving AAO a firsthand look at our Design-Build healthcare construction capabilities.

Our team met with each department during the programming and design phases, and when the design was complete, we provided a budget estimate to be held throughout the project. What seemed like a straight-forward 29,817-square-foot commercial remodel had a complicated twist, as AAO needed to stay operational through construction.

Taking into account the complexities of the job, we implemented a six-phase construction plan to provide the least business disruption for AAO and its tenants. We built temporary partitions for dust and noise control, and we put a stringent safety plan in place. The interior of the facility needed a cosmetic facelift, but more importantly, we brought the building up to current code and accessibility standards.

A new exterior louvered entry system protects the three story glass lobby, giving the exterior facade a fresh update, while at the same time controlling the harsh early morning sun.

We take pride in delivering every build on-budget on-time, no matter what a job throws at us. See more of our tenant finish work here. Or learn more about our tenant finish tenant improvement services here.
