Charles Schwab Corporate Campus
Charles Schwab Corporate Campus

Charles Schwab is well known for low cost, high value investment services. But the company’s 2,500 people in the Front Range were spread among a variety of buildings and sites. Civitas assisted Schwab in a site selection, evaluating the viability of 9 distinct sites for a consolidated regional headquarters. After a year of study Schwab selected a large site located at the center of Centennial, CO, with access to greenways, bikeways and services all within walking distance. Combined with a prominent location offering vast mountain views, Schwab sought to develop a campus that fully expressed a Colorado lifestyle.

Civitas designed the site to be exceptionally sustainable, with over 75% of the total site restored with native prairie for water conservation and habitat development. The four campus buildings surround a central services building with a fully accessible, occupied green roof which overlooks a large terrace and amphitheater for corporate and community gatherings and events.
