CGG is a fully integrated Geoscience company providing leading geological, geophysical and reservoir capabilities to its broad base of customers primarily from the global oil and gas industry. In 2000, CGG sought to unite disparate corporate functions previously spread throughout Houston, Texas in four separate locations. Ziegler Cooper´s design team created a master plan for the 18.5 acre corporate campus with a 20-30 year forecast for growth. The first phase consisted of two 3-story, 162,500 square foot office buildings and an interconnecting warehouse/shop building. Arranged in a “C” shape, the buildings are clustered around a generous, landscaped courtyard which promotes interaction and enhanced connectivity. Eight years later an additional 91,500 s.f. office building incorporated along with a 5,500 s.f. dining facility.
