“When Godiva made the decision to expand and remodel our current office, we knew that we needed to bring in the expertise to lead us through each phase of the project. Gola provided that expertise and much more. From negotiating rent savings and allowances, to representing Godiva on contract discussions, the Gola team led by Rod Neary and Dave Butera delivered. But what really differentiates Gola is the support and services they provided through the build-out…The end result was a brand-new office that exceeded our expectations and truly reflects the Godiva brand. I highly recommend Gola and thank their entire team for a job well done.

– Sam Vulopas, Head of Global Finance



Godiva’s lease was up for renewal, which coincided with their need for additional space.


The company, which had started out with 12,000 SF at One Meridian at Spring Ridge in 2005, increased their square footage to 50,000 SF.


Following lease renewal that encompassed an additional 38,000 SF of space, Gola’s project management team stepped in to facilitate Godiva’s major expansion through construction completion.

A multi-phased approach was required for Godiva to maintain operations during an accelerated construction schedule that addressed both the expansion space and improving a significant portion of their existing space. Godiva leaned heavily on our team to flawlessly coordinate the entire process over the course of three months, and the result exceeded their expectations.
