Project Summary

D. R. Anderson Constructors Co. negotiated this new tenant finish project which consisted of constructing a new office facility with commodity trading floor area for BP Energy.

Part of the selection criteria was the ability for DRA to start the construction of the tenant finish during the construction of the original shell office building.  This simultaneous schedule cut 4 months off the original schedule.

The function of this office was to buy & sell propane/natural gas for the western half of the United States.  The design was completed with contributions from the United Kingdom, Canada and several offices throughout the United States.  The coordination was required to assure the global communications required to keep the trading floor in contact with other corporate entities.

Several modifications to the shell building such as an increase in exterior windows, redundant power and communication assets were made to support this unique operation.

The tenant finish included conference rooms, general offices and the trading floor area.  Significant use of structural glazing in walls and doors and exposed ceilings were designed to implement a wide open look.
