Intended to house 2,200 workers, the 330,000-sq-ft Presbyterian Health Services headquarters incorporates strategies for work force productivity, recruitment and retention and long-term operational efficiency for the health plan and clinical support staff. The first phase included renovation of an existing 133,000-sq-ft, two-story call center with deep floor plates. During Phase 2, crews built a 195,000-sq-ft, three-story addition to the existing building, including a two-story lobby with public and staff entrances, both open and private workspaces for 1,100 staff and support spaces. A 15,000-sq-ft training center has six large meeting rooms and a 300-seat auditorium. Judges commended the construction team for having no recordable incidents during 325,600 hours worked and for the successful execution of sustainable principles.
