CHICAGO—Avanade Inc. has selected J.C. Anderson Inc. for a project that includes a 20,000-sq.-ft. expansion and renovation at Avanade’s space at 161 N. Clark Street in Chicago.

The renovation project will be phased and include improvements to the reception, conference and pantry areas; new ceiling finishes and paint throughout; and new glass sidelights for the perimeter offices. The conference rooms will feature new magnetic glass marker boards and detailed partition walls. J.C. Anderson will also construct millwork benches within open office areas to accent the new workstations and install glass fronts for two meeting rooms, new banquet seating and a reception desk.

Michael Yazbec, executive vice president of J.C. Anderson, is the project executive and Joe Maguire is the project manager. Houston-based Planning Design Research provided the architectural services. The project is scheduled for construction in fall 2012.

Founded in 2000 by Accenture L.L.P. and Microsoft Corporation, Avanade provides business technology solutions and managed services. The firm is majority owned by Accenture.
