Phase I involved construction of a 12-story, 317,000-square-foot office building. Upon completion, Sysco employees migrated into the new building, and the old building was demolished, saving only the data center. The data center was “cocooned” and kept fully operational during 18 months of demolition and construction of the Phase II tower around it – an eight-story, 212,000-square-foot office tower linked by a sky bridge to the Phase I tower. The Phase II tower has 105,000 square feet of specialized space, including a state-of-the-art product evaluation center and test kitchens, as well as a conference center. The project also features central plants that can operate independently or in tandem to efficiently cool and heat the complex, a fitness center and two new garages with a total of 1,830 spaces.
Upon its completion in 2008, the campus became Houston’s first LEED Gold certified property for New Construction.
HMA provided the design of the security, parking controls and building management and controls systems as well as provided LEED commissioning services.
