Xactware wanted its building to be as efficient as possible, and contractors believe they achieved that goal. "This building is 210,000 gross sq ft and 200,000 net square feet, so we're 90% efficient with the space," says Will Hopkins, Big-D Construction project executive.
"I keep hearing how much our employees enjoy the new building—the atmosphere, what it does for them," Evans says. "So far, so good."
