When Perkins Eastman realized the space they were in was no longer a good fit for how they were working, they started considering updating their office. They wanted a space that was conducive to collaboration, professionalism, and what their architects need. Due to the narrow profit margins architecture works within, it was necessary for them to make a financial decision carefully. It was also imperative for Perkins Eastman to find a financial partner who would be supportive, creative with how they provide support, and act with integrity. First American worked with Perkins Eastman to understand their initiatives and created a solution to help them achieve their goals.
Perkins Eastman’s office now has much more team-based space, collaboration space, and allows leaders to be in the midst of their teams. The new work environment is also supportive of the technology they now use.



“Immediately with First American, I felt a sense of trust and comfort and professionalism. That allowed me to make a better decision and it allowed me to achieve even more credibility at Perkins Eastman as a new CFO.”

Candace Carroll, Chief Financial Officer
