American Trucking Association

Founded in 1933, the American Trucking Association (ATA) is the largest trade association for the trucking industry representing 37,000 members nationwide. For this project, Forrester built-out 130,000 SF of space in a new base building to house ATA’s headquarters office which includes a conference center, a main lobby reception area, a cafeteria, an executive floor and a roof terrace.

Each office floor has veneer and lacquer wall panels, file niches with specialty lighting and accent paint and unique pantries designed to resemble high-end truck trailers. The building’s also features a two-story atrium with views of the second floor reception area from the third floor elevator lobby and conference room. All floors received high-end finishes including imported stone and glass tile as well as wenge wood veneer.
