Page provided Architecture, Engineering, Interior Design and Environmental Graphics for this Viasat technology office project in College Station, Texas. Viasat Inc. is a global provider of satellite broadband and wireless services, infrastructure, and technology. They connect consumers, businesses, governments and military to the internet anywhere in the world via a new generation of high-capacity satellite systems. Competing for the best engineering talent, Viasat provides state of the art facilities for their employees. The new 3 story, 90,000-square-foot facility includes a 10,000-square foot call center for customer support, a student lab for collaborating with the nearby Texas A&M University, game room, gymnasium, casual cafeteria and ViaSat’s signature Roast House, where employees can enjoy a cup of coffee with colleagues. The second and third level are laid out in the signature ViaSat co-lab which allows teams of engineers a private office that opens up to the common team space between. Outdoor amenities include both volleyball and basketball courts, a running trail and an outdoor grill area. Tilt Wall construction was used to project a sophisticated and modern high tech image, while providing Viasat with a resilient and low maintenance facility. Formliners and color variations were used to create a dynamic and visually exciting building while maintaining an efficient and rigorous 15’ typical exterior module standardized at 12” of thickness. Additional depth was achieved by using high performance glass of varying reflectivity. Wood look Trespa panels, curtain wall and corrugated perforated metal panels were further used as accents at the entries and ground floor amenity areas.
