Our Garden Workplace
The world headquarters of the Bradford Group has won numerous awards for its free-flowing architectural design featuring indoor tents and tropical gardens. Within 170,000 square feet of office space, our employees enjoy a lush setting of greenery, waterfalls, brooks, suspension sky bridges, fountains, and palm, bamboo and ficus trees. Our central garden features a distinctive ceiling with a soaring "big top" tent designed to filter natural light from the domed skylights overhead into our office space. The garden serves as a common space for our employees to eat lunch, take a break, or hold meetings and creative brainstorming sessions.
We are proud to have been awarded the Energy Star 2015 Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for our efforts to maintain an energy-efficient workplace.
An olive tree, symbolizing peace, was planted in the Bradford Group gardens on the first anniversary of the September 11th tragedy during a solemn ceremony attended by every employee at the corporate headquarters in Niles, Illinois. The American flag is raised above the tree, marking this memorial site within the central garden.
