Greater Atlanta Christian Junior & Senior High School Renovation

Following the spin-off from Kimberly-Clark Clark Corporation, Halyard Health relocates their headquarters office to Kimberly-Clark’s campus in Alpharetta, GA. Four floors within two office buildings are renovated in an extremely fast-paced four-month schedule. Halyard Health is a global healthcare company focused on preventing infection, eliminating pain, and speeding recovery.

Full height glass doors lined with Halyard’s distinct logo allow guests to enter through various other points of entry. Upon entering Halyard’s main lobby, guests are greeted by porcelain Italian tile floors and a fumed Aspen wood reception desk. Halyard’s logo is prominently displayed against custom millwork wall panels. Canted display walls with additional printed vinyl decals create an unmistakable sophistication in elevator lobbies. Elevator lobbies and conference areas are illuminated by 5-foot cylindrical mud-in lighting fixtures. A skyfold partition is installed in the large conference room.

In the six breakrooms throughout the corporate office, Italian porcelain tile backsplash plus custom millwork panels evoke the modern atmosphere felt throughout the entire office.

The renovation encourages employee collaboration and engagement. Breakaway rooms made for small conferences include full monitors and backlit LED lighting lining the wall, facilitating mobile conferencing. Comfortable seating plus full internet capabilities allow for a shared work environment in the mobile lounge. Nearly 80% of the sheetrock in the office is covered with writable wall surfaces, enhancing employee teamwork. Scheduling monitors are installed outside all rooms with meeting capabilities to eliminate any scheduling complications. Wellness rooms provide a place for relaxation and healing for new and expectant mothers or employees feeling under the weather.

Central core areas feature custom designed booths complete with Halyard’s distinct colors, full bar-height island, fumed Aspen millwork, and elegant Cambria quartz side panels. Employees can enjoy a sophisticated coffee bar with a high-end espresso maker and monitors. BuzziSpace, a sound-absorbing felt, is installed in common core areas allowing for acoustic deafening. LED lighting throughout these areas have occupancy sensors to allow for energy efficiency. Custom display cabinets are installed outside of core areas, showcasing the company’s products.

One of the largest and most unique areas in this multi-faceted project is the laboratory space. A see-through custom ducted, stainless steel fume hood is installed, allowing employees to view experiments occurring in the lab. As employees enter the lab, all of the printed vinyl decals on the full height glass doors showcase the patent numbers of all of Halyard’s products. Welded chemical resistant vinyl floors and multi-faceted millwork clouds hang above all lab islands, creating the look of a sail. These millwork clouds aid in both lighting and acoustics, absorbing sound created in the laboratory. Each lab island is equipped with epoxy resin tops, medical gases, and completely deionized water systems. Mock-up rooms allow customers to see all of the company’s products in motion, offering true-to-life and fully operational surgery rooms with surgical lighting and medical equipment.

Halyard’s basement contains a machine shop prototype room, installed for new product development. An environmental chamber allows employees to modify the controlled environment, including humidity and temperature, to facilitate product reaction experimentation. To allow for the sophisticated equipment installed throughout the building, a steel platform is built on the roof housing mechanical equipment and exhaust units. A screen is installed around the equipment, featuring 15-foot Alucobond metal panels and covering 40-by-90-feet, to obscure visibility from the road. A synthetic rubber 60-mil roof is added with a wire platform to support the mechanical equipment and exhaust units.


Tremendous growth in the Philadelphia area afforded AmerisourceBergen the opportunity to expand with a new location in Conshohocken, PA.

Widener University

The newest residence hall to the Widener campus in over 10 years provides an engaging living space for students to build a sense of community. The four-story, 73,000 SF building accommodated 200 students and offers traditional rooms with a shared bathroom and apartment style units with full kitchens. Students enjoy a central courtyard and multiple study / lounge areas. The on-site Dining Center offers Einstein Bros. Bagels and Moe’s Southwest Grill.

University of Colorado Boulder Student Recreation Center

The more than $53 million renovation to the University of Colorado Boulder’s student recreation center presented its fair share of challenges, both middling and uncharted, at almost every turn. From complex logistics at the highly active occupied facility to a 100-year flood, Saunders Construction’s ability to maintain construction excellence would be the difference between success and failure.

In order to provide a state-of-the-art facility, every square foot of the existing building (235,242 to be exact) required complete renovation. The renovation also included complete replacement of the building’s mechanical and electrical systems to address deferred maintenance needs.

In addition to the renovation, Saunders built new construction in excess of 70,000 square feet, providing space for expanded strength and conditioning areas, a new ice arena, a three-story rock climbing wall, roof-top tennis courts, and a new indoor turf multi-activity gym. The addition required an excavation of approximately 18 feet deep (33,000 cubic yards of dirt) and nearly five months of campus utility relocations. Additionally, the facility required structural enhancements to meet current seismic requirements.

Discovery Hall

Lewis constructed a 74,000 square foot building that houses 11 science labs, several classrooms, a 200-person lecture hall, and faculty offices at the center of the active UW Bothell campus. Specialized areas include a motion-capture lab and a “collaboratory” that enables group learning. The project was a case study in maximizing integrated teaming and Lean within Washington’s GC/CM contracting law. Project elements that enabled timely design and construction included: shared goals between Lewis, the UW, and the design team, working together continually and without “silos” , fully leveraging BIM to expedite design and quality construction; and last-planner scheduling.

Texas Instruments DMOS Phase II

Texas Instruments, Inc. DMOS 5, Phase II, includes the construction of a three-story Computer Wafer Fabrication facility. The building is designed around a 65,000 SF clean room with support area of 455,000 SF for systems servicing the clean room function. Additionally, a five-story Administration Building of 120,000 SF was required for the administrative functions of the clean room. Also included is a chemical dock and a deionized water building.

This complex, totaling 650,000 SF is connected to an existing operating clean room facility – DMOS 5 Phase I and required a 12-month construction schedule. DMOS 5 Phase II is an addition to Phase I, which was also completed by Rogers-O’Brien.

The Women’s Museum

Rogers-O’Brien Construction completed restoration of “The Women’s Museum” for The Foundation for Women’s Resources, a private nonprofit organization located in Austin, Texas. The restoration won considerable recognition from a multitude of associations and from the state, including the Dallas Preservation Achievement Award, the Texas Building Branch-AGC Outstanding Construction Award, the QUOIN Summit Award and the ABC Excellence in Construction Award. The facility, built in 1910 as the State Fair Coliseum, now serves as a national museum focused solely on the historical achievements and contributions of women. Rogers-O’Brien was called upon to renovate the existing building (approximately 70,000 square feet) and to restore the facility’s fountains and other unique elements. Innovation programs intertwined throughout many areas of the restoration project in cooperation with the U.S. Parks Department and the Dallas Landmark Commission, and the Texas Historic Commission.
