Calfee, Halter & Griswold LLPRestoring the Calfee Building

Calfee and our architecture firm, Vocon, conducted research to discover the best technologies and the most efficient work practices for our attorneys and staff. As a result, The Calfee Building includes:

  • Multiple collaborative workspaces to allow groups of attorneys to share ideas and work product.
  • Wireless Internet access throughout the building, flat-screen video panels with computer connections in each conference room.
  • The high-tech glass walls of the second floor conference rooms not only meet historic renovation guidelines, but allow for privacy at the flip of a switch.
  • A conference center with rooms of various sizes near each other makes for efficient meetings for groups of two to 20 or more.
  • The conference rooms are outfitted with professional-grade audio and video conferencing systems for use by Calfee attorneys and our clients.

The Calfee Building was revived as an elegant, LEED Gold-Certified Office. The design includes many eco-friendly – and wallet-friendly - features, such as: 

  • Motion-sensor sinks lessen water use.
  • Daylight sensors control office lighting and reduce electricity use.
  • The building’s historic windows were replicated but with energy-efficient features.
  • Glass, metal, paper, and plastic are separated at recycling stations on each floor. 
  • Low VOC paints, carpet, furniture, and other project materials were used.
  • A new white roof reduces heat gain on the building, lessening overall energy use.
