The Tower at First National Center was built to accommodate the First National Bank of Omaha offices in the heart of downtown. To create a more collaborative and healthy office environment for employees to return to work, our team designed new mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and technology systems to renovate specific floors of the 45-story building.
