eVestment Engages Cooper Carry to Reimagine Its Workspace at Perimeter Center in Atlanta, GA

ATLANTA, GA –Atlanta-based design firm Cooper Carry is creating a new work environment for eVestment, the global leader in institutional investor data and analytics.

In Summer 2016, the software company is moving its corporate headquarters from Marietta, Georgia to 100 Glenridge Point Parkway at Perimeter Center in Atlanta.

“As a forward-thinking tech company, eVestment sought a collaborative design that would accommodate dynamic growth quickly, support its fast paced business, and provide employee comfort and life balance,” said Kim Rousseau, principal of Cooper Carry’s interior design studio.

“We decided to create a loft office environment with a dynamic stair connecting workers on different floors; standardize a singular workstation size; provide key amenities, such as a robust fitness center and a large gathering break area connected to an exterior deck via garage doors; and lots of natural light. It’s a creative evolution of the start up garage.”

Cooper Carry’s workspace design transforms this traditional suburban office building into a tech-style village adding enhanced outdoor gathering spaces and additional green space. Inside there is an industrial chic sophistication with communal seating including plywood picnic tables, bar-style stools, open work stations and even graffiti walls.

“Since beginning this project, we have been mindful of infusing this workspace with functional features that promote open dialogue and innovation while creating an inspirational place where the employees feel like they are part of something great,” added Rousseau.

 “We believe this design creates a dynamic environment that represents eVestment, and ultimately, will prove to be an extremely efficient and enjoyable use of space.”

eVestment’s new headquarters includes more than 75,000 square feet, encompassing three complete floors and two partial floors of the five story building. As eVestment grows, it has additional expansion opportunities within the building and office park.

Founded in 2000, eVestment has experienced significant growth over the past eight years, doubling its revenue and employee headcount nearly every two years. Since 2014, the company has hired about 200 new employees worldwide. In Atlanta, the company now employs about 230 people, with a total global workforce of about 350 individuals.

 “The design Cooper Carry created met our goals of an efficient, collaborative and fun workplace setting,” said eVestment co-founder Heath Wilson. “We wanted to create an environment that would support our growth, help us attract and retain top talent and be conducive to creating innovative solutions that meet our clients’ needs.”
