Ally Financial Inc.

Fort Washington , PA


Norwood is currently the Construction Manager for the renovation of a 460,000 SF suburban office building that Norwood originally repositioned in 2007 for GMAC Residential Mortgage, now Ally Financial. The renovation was commissioned to reflect the separation of a large corporate conglomerate into several spin-off companies. The original repositioning project involved renovation of a one-story former light industrial space, conversion of a two-story office building, and creation of a new courtyard. In addition to completing all phases of work while the building was partially occupied, Norwood met all budgetary and scheduling goals, including a move-in schedule with 15 sub-phases. The completed headquarters features a Tier Three global data center, 1,600 SF of skylights overlooking three separate town centers, an 800-seat dining room and cafeteria that doubles as a conference room, a fitness center, a 100,000 SF courtyard with basketball court, patio, built-in grill, and other employee recreational amenities. Norwood provided extensive preconstruction services in an effort to meet tight deadlines and schedules, while creating this unique and vibrant work environment
