Bread Financial’s mission is to think outside the bank as the leading tech-forward financial solutions provider. Bread does this through digitally enabled choices for their clients that bring ease, empowerment and financial flexibility.

Formerly Alliance Data System, Bread Financial’s leadership team was looking to optimize their campus footprint and upgrade their workspaces to increase efficiency and engagement among teams. They turned to our integrated approach to help them understand how their associates wanted to work and build a space that would attract and retain talent while meeting business goals.

Careful planning involving leadership and staff to define overall goals for the project resulted in the decision to create three themes for the new office – autonomy, equity, and camaraderie – which required the space to be designed in a way that would support these themes.

During the project, the client re-branded which affected the design but we were able to shift and accommodate the new brand elements and colors. Supply chain delays caused by the pandemic were also a factor. However, through consistent communication between our design and construction teams, we were able to accommodate all changes and foresee materials scheduling to complete the project on time and on budget.

Using this team as our design and build-out partner, for the architectural designs and the general contracting aspect, was a very good experience affording us the benefit of time and we probably picked up at least half a year which was incredibly important to the entire project.

We’re proud of the space that we were able to create together.
I didn’t have to worry about anything, you are one source of truth for everything.
