You can access the tours by name: East, South, West, North and Western Gateway. Or, if you are standing by a building and want to know more about it,¬†click on your location and the building’s profile will pop up with a photo and audio description generously donated by KFMG founder, Ron Sorenson.¬†Thanks to Workiva’s team of volunteers created the app at the DSM H ackathon in 2017.
