The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology is a medical board that hosts licensed professionals from around the country to participate in seminars, trainings, policy meetings and collaboration sessions for certain exams.
Berglund Construction collaborated with top international design firm Perkins Eastman to construct the board's new headquarters. The 41,000 sqft, two-story facility — designed exclusively to address the needs of the ABPN — includes a large conference center, formal and informal collaboration spaces, and private offices. The L-shaped building features wings that form a private outdoor courtyard with a view of the lake.
The unique configuration of the building is like no other. When visitors enter they see straight through a glazed floor-to-ceiling wall to the private courtyard with a view of a lake beyond. A floating communication stair in the two-story lobby atrium lobby connects the ground and second floors. The building holds four 300-sqft conference rooms, six 50-sqft workrooms and a 1,000-sqft café.
