The largest construction project in St. Louis in several years, the 515,000-square-foot CitiMortgage Operations Center combined four different venues into one location. Tilt-Up enabled the design-build team to meet the aggressive schedule and aesthetic requirements.
The judges said they selected the project for an award because it is simply well-designed.
A particularly rainy spring in St. Louis caused the project to fall 40 days behind schedule. However, by utilizing Tilt-Up and design-build, the contractor was able to not only get back on schedule, but actually finish ahead of schedule.
The three-story building will house up to 5,000 Citigroup employees and was constructed so that additional wings could be added to accommodate personnel growth. This modern facility offers many employee benefits, including a full-service cafeteria, exercise facility, open floor plans with perimeter window views, convenient highway access, exterior amenities patio and indirect lighting at all open office areas to reduce glare on a computer screen.
The color and texture of the thin brick system, coupled with the landscaping, lighting and store wall that surrounds the facility, provide a corporate feel that is suitable for the suburban environment.
This project was a 2004 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award winner.
