Financial services giant American Express has operated out of South Florida for decades but had thousands of employees spread out in five locations. Their new 443,000-square-foot regional headquarters unites their customer care, technology, finance and marketing departments in a collaborative, naturally-lit environment. The campus centers around two three-story glass office buildings connected by an atrium and includes amenities such as an exercise center, a cafeteria, a daycare center and outside paths for biking and walking.
We provided structural design services to Perkins+Will for the 40-acre facility, which achieved LEED Gold certification and opened in 2017.
- The office buildings are steel framed with composite concrete slab on metal deck and steel floor framing. The main building is supported on deep foundations consisting of augercast piles and pile caps.
- The complex's parking garage accommodates 1,450 parking spaces and features a structural precast concrete superstructure supported by deep foundations consisting of augercast piles and pile caps.
