by | Oct 4, 2022
Vari's new global HQ was designed by Dallas-based BOKA Powell. The company's goal: "continue to probe the future of how we work." With open stairwells inside and walking trails outside, getting up and about is encouraged. So is staying healthy: The new HQ is the third building in DFW to receive Fitwel certification for healthy workplaces, the company says. "Most executives are still trying to figure out the future of work, the workforce, and workspaces—that’s where we come in," said Vari co-founder and CEO Jason McCann.
