Turning off Westside Parkway, just south of Windward Parkway, the tidy glass office building that houses Fiserv promises a bright future. The newer office structure that houses the grand lobby presents six stories of glass with a flourish of daylight, digital art and thoughtful design choices that set the stage for creativity, collaboration and success.
Fiserv is a leading provider of financial services technology, including account processing, online and mobile banking, and payments, and is one of the largest technology employers in Georgia. Many people are probably more familiar with Fiserv than they realize – the company provides online and mobile banking and bill payment services to many of the largest banks in the country. In July 2015, the company transitioned its Atlanta-area operations — approximately 2,000 associates across six locations in the Atlanta metro area — to a new nearly 400,000 square foot state-of-the-art campus in Alpharetta.
Alpharetta was identified as the right fit for Fiserv; a leading location for technology-focused businesses and large corporations. The new campus was designed to reflect the company brand and aspiration — as an innovative financial services technology provider in step with the way people live and work today, offering best-in-class results through a best-in-class facility. Designed to foster collaboration and communication through technology, Fiserv associates helped to shape the new world-class environment.
By creating a flexible environment through cutting-edge yet warm and inviting architectural elements, the new space presents itself as a dynamic facility that promotes collaboration, productivity and an unyielding focus on innovation and quality. Tvsdesign of Atlanta handled the rebuild.
“The design concept reflects our ability to deliver sophisticated solutions through pristine, clean geometry drawn from the square shape of the Fiserv ‘Proof Point’ brand mark. The ‘Proof Point’ is the square that punctuates the Fiserv logo,” says Leigh Asher, SVP, Global Brand An oversized Proof Point- a solid square, forms the center lobby Welcome Center.
The square design of the Proof Point is eloquently incorporated throughout the campus, from lighting fixtures and signage to break room nooks and artwork. The color orange is tastefully visible everywhere in the new building, reflecting the vibrant energy of the primary Fiserv brand color. Walls were used to showcase written words echoing the company values, vision, and even quotes from associates sharing why they are proud to work at Fiserv.
Some of the “green” features include solar panels, energy-efficient LED lighting and HVAC equipment, lighting that is programmed to turn off when not in use, 99% recyclable workstation chairs, workspace products certified with low-emitting off-gassing chemicals, and electric vehicle charging stations.
