AAA Walnut Creek Headquarters Relocation

Embarking on a new office adventure

HGA worked with the American Automobile Association (AAA) to relocate their headquarters from Emeryville to transit-friendly Walnut Creek. The new headquarters located directly across the street from BART, provides a micro-branch on the ground floor for “walk-ins”, as well as amazing views of Mt. Diablo and the surrounding countryside. The design team incorporated transit elements in a sophisticated way throughout the space with a license plate wall in breakroom, headlight pendant in the conference off the reception, hubcap inlay in the custom boardroom table, and a one of a kind “tire tread” wall/ceiling feature in boardroom. HGA helped AAA develop and implement a new workplace strategy that is focused on attracting younger talent and creating an environment that more easily facilitates multiple types of collaboration.
