Project Description

WeWork

In 7 years, WeWork has opened 140 locations in 44 cities in 14 countries, totalling 8 million SF worldwide. It is the fastest-growing lessee of new space in America.

MKThink is the Architect of Record for the company’s West Coast expansion, opening 24 locations (from 10,000 SF – 90,000 SF) for a total of 1.6 million SF.

MKThink developed a repeatable implementation model, which expedites construction and minimizes cost through standardized design elements, volume pricing, and a menu of permit strategies.

New locations can be brought to market within 5 months. A compressed design-build timeframe is critical to the company’s rapid growth and to minimizing expenses during construction.

WeWork has adopted MKThink’s model and continues to apply it to build-outs of locations in its ever expanding network.
