Facility features 30,000 square feet of refined interiors

SAN CARLOS, CA -- (April 22, 2002). Wentz Group, a leading California-based general contractor for 28 years, recently completed a $500,000 contract for Serena Software, Inc. for the construction of their new corporate headquarters. Located in San Mateo at 2755 Campus Drive, construction began in February 2002 and was completed this month.

"We selected Wentz Group because they were highly recommended by our architect, Ware Malcomb," said Anne Yardley, office manager for Serena Software, Inc. "They were able to design a flexible schedule and work out-of-sequence to adapt to unexpected schedule challenges. We were happy to occupy the space on-time and overall, we’re very satisfied with the project."

Designed by Ware Malcomb Architects, Inc., Serena Software occupies the entire 3rd floor, which encompasses stellar views of the bay and San Francisco. The 30,000-square-foot corporate office building is well articulated with contemporary, brightly colored design principles taken from the Serena Software’s existing corporate identity. The interior boasts office space for 140 employees including over 100-work stations, 11-private executive offices, nine-conference rooms, a technology room, two-breakrooms with kitchens and a training/education center. The lobby is embellished with slate tile floors, high-end wall coverings and quartered fiddle-back anigre hardwood reception desk and wall panels.

"In general, we need to work quickly on any interior improvement project to meet schedule and occupancy goals. This particular project possessed some unique permitting challenges," said Chris Thompson, project manager for Wentz Group. "Eric Barger, the project superintendent, was able to reschedule out of sequence work in order to complete the project on-time."
