Swinerton Builders Texas has secured a contract to build a state-of-the-art office complex and campus for American multinational energy corporation Chevron in Midland, Texas which is designed by global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm HOK.
Located on 25 acres west of the Scharbauer Sports Complex, the 340,000-square-foot Chevron Midland Campus will consist of two, four-storey buildings connected by a walkway, a fitness centre, a cafeteria, a training facility, mission critical components, and a central plant.
Apart from that the new facility will also feature a parking structure for over 700 vehicles. The building's enclosure will be a unitised, high-performance curtainwall system.
The project is slated to achieve a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Construction is expected to begin in mid-summer 2013, with completion anticipated in 2015. It is expected to entail an investment of $100m and is being managed out of Swinerton's Austin office.
Supporting Chevron's goal of providing a world-class facility for its West Texas Permian Basin operations, the new facility will be designed to attract talented new employees and support future growth in Midland.
