Completed in 1991 this 2-story 12,000 square foot professional office was developed as a Design/Build project with local construction company and was delivered at approximately $75.00/SF. The basic structure consists primarily of perimeter load-bearing masonry supporting a steel bar joist with metal deck and concrete floor system on the second floor and pre-engineered wood roof trusses above. The “Mediterranean” design style was highlighted with the use of terra cotta concrete barrel roof tile, soft pastel colors, banded window trim, and Neo-Classical proportioning.

This 10,000 SF facility for Bank One (formerly NBD Bank, N.A.) was completed in 1999 as a “Build-to-Suit” facility for the private bank tenant. The basic structure consists of perimeter load-bearing masonry with interior tube steel columns supporting steel bar joists and a mansard concrete tile roof all around. Inside, the main entry features a coffered barreled-vault ceiling with solid stained cherry wood trim and mouldings and natural alabaster light fixtures. As the second building constructed within a newly developed “financial park” (adjacent to the Fidelity Investments building completed in 1998), it was the client’s desire that this building should symbolize the strength and stability representative of a successful financial institution while establishing it’s own identity and independence within the development.

This 2,000 SF facility for Riverside Bank of the Gulf Coast was completed in 2001 as remodeling and renovation to an existing bank building which had been vacant for some time. It was the client’s desire that this building should symbolize the strength and stability representative of a successful financial institution while establishing it’s own identity and place within the community. The existing building was fairly stark consisting of white slabs of stucco, with subtle offsets in the planes, and void of any traditional detailed attributes. Through the use of applied cosmetic treatments (i.e. crown molding and decorative banding elements) and soft colors the “White-Box” was transformed into an aesthetically pleasing and architecturally inviting facility which fits into the surrounding neighborhood.

This 7,000 SF facility for Fidelity Investments was completed in 1998 under a Design/Build contract for an owner/developer client as a build-to-suit for the user. The basic structure consists of perimeter load-bearing masonry with interior tube steel columns supporting pre-engineered wood roof trusses and concrete barrel roof tile. Build-outs in the base and at the cornice with stucco on decorative foam profiles emulate traditional detailing and proportioning at a fraction of the cost.
