Description: Convoy of Hope’s new offices will provide a home base for the nonprofit’s worldwide relief efforts and include expanded training and communication resources, officials say. The expansion is located adjacent to the distribution center, and the buildings will be attached through a skywalk. The building’s post-tensioned cast-in-place concrete and steel frame structure includes decorative metal wall panels and aluminum and glass features. The space will initially house Convoy of Hope’s 250 employees under one roof with room to expand to 500, project officials say. An in-house auditorium will seat up to 700 people for training seminars, and it’ll also be equipped with audiovisual editing suites for marketing production.
