Exterior consists of a one-of-a-kind precast design with multiple architectural elements on each elevation of the building. The interior consists of high-end vendor shops including Zegna, David Yurman, Canali, Chanel, Gucci, Prada as well as several others. The interior lighting package comprised over 4,000 fixtures the bulk of which were installed in Level 5 finished drywall ceilings.

CoreLogic – North Texas Operations Office

Part of the Cypress Waters development in Dallas, Texas, this 327,000 SF 4-story shell tilt-wall office and parking garage serves as a new regional headquarters for CoreLogic bringing 1,300 local employees from the existing Westlake and Richardson locations.   The embedded CoreLogic logo on the building was achieved through the use of a fritted glass technique whereby the color is integral of the glass and not a decal or applied sticker.  Rogers-O’Brien documented 49 weather-delay days during the construction of this project. The entire building site was matted to prevent sinking and sandbags used.  Even with significant weather delays the building was delivered on time.  Through buy-out savings Rogers-O’Brien was able to return $640,992 to the owner which they used for tenant-improvement upgrades.

CyrusOne Data Center

Building II started as site retaining walls only for two new building additions adjacent to the current site and then evolved into the entire Building 2 facility including data center ft up complete in 7.5 months. This tilt-wall and precast structure houses a single tenant (Fortune 100 client) with 18 MW of critical load, totaling 188,617 SF. With a 7.5 month schedule, this ground-up project was completed on time from start to a fully commissioned data center with 4 months of around-the-clock construction. To reduce noise to an adjacent residential neighborhood and two separate utility yards, 30’ tall sound barrier walls were installed on the entire west side of the project site. These walls consisted of poured-in-place concrete, tilt panels and precast at various areas of the building  to remain within the sound ordinance levels.

The Angelika Theatre interior finish out incorporated high-end materials that resulted in a sophisticated, luxurious venue. The 20,000 SF theatre features Angelika’s signature crystal chandelier and a free-standing radius stairwall with stainless steel rails and decorative concrete steps to match the stained concrete on the second floor concession lobby. The glass elevator is trimmed in brushed stainless steel and the elevator face on the second floor features walls fabricated from the same Israeli-imported granite that is used on the first floor.

The floor and columns on the first level of the theatre are crafted of polished bamboo. The concession stands on the second floor were made of exotic woods imported from Australia. Rogers-O’Brien installed all the equipment for concessions. Two of the theatres were designed for conference room capabilities, with dimming lights, podium and computer/Internet connectivity that ties into the theatre sound system. The team installed stereo sound systems in the entire theatre complex.
