Kiewit Energy Group
Soon after construction began, this four-story, 103,000-square-foot office building for The Woodlands Development Company was 100 percent leased by Kiewit Energy Group.
After construction, Kiewit retained PGAL to plan and design all interior build-out, including minor base building modifications to customize the space and meet the company’s needs.
The project consolidated Kiewit’s local offices, including co-location of its sister company, The Industrial Company (TIC), with more than 400 employees. Given the fluid nature of Kiewit’s business and workforce, the floors are 85 percent open-concept work environment, with minimal closed, private offices. The typical workspace features one standard cubicle size and two standard enclosed offices. To support the open work environment and employee collaboration, PGAL provided plenty of touch down spaces, huddle spaces, and small meeting rooms. Employees can use a scheduling panel to reserve meeting spaces. Each floor includes contiguous break areas and easily accessible copy and print spaces. The fourth floor executive suite includes a boardroom and break room, each with separate reception areas.
Employee amenities are consolidated to the first floor, which features a large reception area off the main building entrance. A 100-person training room with direct access to the reception area can be subdivided into two separate meeting rooms. Generous gathering spaces flanking the training rooms are outfitted with buffet carts to support food service for large meetings and other functions. The training rooms are immediately adjacent to the employee dining area, which will accommodate more than 90 people. Employees can choose from a variety of seating options, including bar height stools, banquettes, and outdoor dining areas. Three full-size refrigerators are provided for employee brown bag lunches, and the dining area’s vendor-supplied snack bar operates on a self-pay system. The first floor also houses a fitness center with a variety of equipment, employee lockers, and shower and changing rooms.
