The three-phase project includes new 12-story and eight-story office towers with a long east-west axis, a two-story amenities building and a parking garage, as well as the renovation of the company’s existing headquarters.
The design challenge was to create a headquarters that promotes Sysco’s close-knit culture and value consciousness while achieving a high level of LEED certification.
The flexible office space is competitive in the local market and accommodates single or multiple branding. The raised-floor system allows for an underfloor air delivery system that adds flexibility while enabling localized temperature control. Energy modeling during design predicted that the building would be 25 percent more efficient than a building constructed to Houston’s energy code.
Hines was the development manager, with Kendall/Heaton Associates serving as architect of record.
