Principal Corporate Headquarters
Principal is more than a year into a $284 million renovation of its downtown campus. The project will overhaul more than 1.2 million square feet of office space in three buildings, add or replace three skywalk bridges, and upgrade the exterior of the buildings to create more of a campus atmosphere.
Interior upgrades include renovation of office areas, common spaces, furniture, fixtures, meeting space consolidation and food service upgrades. The improvements are intended to increase collaboration between employees.
Progress is currently being made on the 7th Street Parking Garage, Corp 1 Interior Renovations, and Corp 2 Plaza.
New Patient Tower: University of Missouri
The new patient tower for the University of Missouri presented a compilation of unique challenges for HOK Architects. Based on site logistics and existing facilities, a full bed-depth brick veneer solution utilizing a unitized rainscreen system was the solution of choice.
The only issue was that the system had not been previously engineered or constructed in actual practice before. AWS and SMI were retained to work in collaboration with the design team to develop a custom solution for the exterior envelope.
Utilizing a design-bid-build delivery system, JE Dunn provided construction management services for the facility.
Fully assembled in Strawberry Point, IA at the warehouse facilities of Seedorff Masonry, 324 panels were fabricated and shipped to Columbia, MO where AWS team erected the panels on the structure.
