IKM was hired by PNC Bank to design expansion space at the Allegheny Center complex on the North Shore. The design work included furniture layouts, interior design, and MEP engineering services for flexible high density workstation seating and staff training center spaces.  New Toilet Rooms, Break Areas, Conference Rooms, Team Rooms, Private Offices and Open Workstations were all incorporated into the program.

The training classrooms accommodate up to 25 staff per session and provide power and wi-fi. Classes typically included consumer lending services providing continuing education to existing departmental employees. The space doubles as orientation and education center for newly hired staff as well. The in-room technology permits sharing images from individual workstations to the main display screen at the front of the classroom.

The project was submitted for LEED-CI by an independent party for the client. The design achieved the Silver Certification Level.
