ExxonMobil Campus Project
The campus includes 14 low-rise office buildings and three parking garages to accommodate more than 10,000 employees
As a result of the overall scale, this project has provided an excellent opportunity to bring proactive work practices to multiple subcontractors and set leading industry safety records.
Gilbane Building Company began its engagement with ExxonMobil for a new 385 acre campus project in the fall of 2009, providing budgeting, schedule development, consultant selection, constructability and overall logistics planning services for the Campus Project. In the fall of 2010, Gilbane successfully competed for and was awarded the site development and infrastructure construction work; including Parking Garages, Central Plant, Computing Facility, Roadways/Bridges and related service ways. Subsequently, we were awarded the contracts to build all the remaining buildings on the campus in 2011.
The campus includes 14 low-rise office buildings, three parking garages to accommodate more than 10,000 employees, large central campus commons, laboratory building, child care center, and a comprehensive roadway system with bridges, a state-of-the-art central utility plant, and all new utility services to the project site. The project utilized an open-plan configuration to allow maximum flexibility for employees while creating a high-quality working environment. The gateway to the campus is through the Energy Center, which provides training and conference facilities together with reception and dining areas. Among the features highlighting this modern architecture, is a 180’x180’ glass cube suspended by large cantilevered steel trusses.
A large central commons area joined by adjacent promenades connects the buildings, both internally and externally, using sustainable materials and natural plantings as part of the overall hardscape/landscaping approach taken to encourage collaboration throughout the workplace. The campus includes a 100,000 SF wellness center that provides group fitness programs, cardio and weight lifting equipment, and locker room facilities. The campus’ 27,000 SF childcare center provides services for employee’s children ranging from infants through preschool aged.
As a result of the overall scale, the project has provided an excellent opportunity to bring proactive work practices to multiple subcontractors and set leading industry safety records. The project achieved 17 million hours without a lost time incident.
