The power of relationships

KeyBank’s approach is built on maintaining strong relationships with their clients, employees, and communities. When it was time to update their spaces, Vocon’s relationship-focused approach made us a natural partner.

Transforming the company’s headquarters spaces created an opportunity to support a transformation in corporate culture as well, increasing the emphasis on mobility, collaboration, flexible work environments, and efficiency. We consolidated spaces, reducing the average square footage per person and reducing vacancies by 10%, which translated to a savings of $5 million per year over the life of the new lease.
