This new office complex is a state of the art working environment for BHP Billiton, the fast growing Energy Corporation in this region. The building brings together all the employees that were previously scattered across this region for a new collaborative experience. The building incorporates meeting and training rooms with teleconferencing equipment linking this building to offices in the other parts of the United States and the World. The project also involves innovative “green” ideas such as solar power, and high efficiency variable refrigerant flow HVAC equipment. The interior design scope included space planning, ceiling design, finish selection and furniture specifications. The Client expressed a desire for a slightly traditional aesthetic with a powerful edge; which lead us to the winning palette of corporate blue and shades of gray, accented with dark-stained cherry wood and brushed aluminum. The ceilings in the Lobby are perforated metal with an exceptional curved design at the highest point.
