Reynolds Smith & Hills

The new 68,000 sf Administration Building is steel frame with load bearing tilt-up concrete exterior wall panels. KBJ provided comprehensive architectural and interior design services for this project. The exterior and interior spaces reflect the client’s desire for a progressive corporate image.  The use of blue reflective glass and white tilt wall combine to reinforce this concept. The arched glass section at the top of the building references the new airport logo identity.

The floors are constructed with steel beams made to act compositely with the floor slab. The tilt-up walls are also used to resist lateral wind loads. The HVAC system consisted of variable air volume direct expansion packaged rooftop units. Electrical system provided UPS and generator system to back up the building’s critical communication and computer system.
