BlueCross BlueShield Regional Headquarters
Koll Development Company selected zpd+a to team with Dallas-based Corgan Architects to provide architectural interior design services for a new 1.1 million sq. ft. high-rise facility as headquarters for BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) of Texas. zpd+a worked closely with BCBS facilities planning and engineering staff to establish project goals, and with Corgan to create efficient building floor plans, circulation patterns and stacking adjacencies. zpd+a has focused its design approach on creating a healthy, energy-efficient facility with an abundance of natural light and is working with all team members to achieve LEED certification.
Plans call for the development of a seven-story office tower, and an adjacent 15-story office tower and conference center. The master plan for the site, located approximately 20 miles north of Dallas, will provide for an initial occupancy of approximately 3,600 employees with the capacity to add a third tower, which would increase the complex's capacity to accommodate more than 8,000 employees.
