Crown Castle International (CCI), a leading independent owner and operator of shared wireless communications and broadcast infrastructures, contracted Ziegler Cooper to provide design services for the renovation and expansion of a 4-floor, 63,710 square foot, corporate headquarters.
The expansion at 1220 Augusta, in Houston’s Galleria area, includes a new 4,088 square foot fitness center on level one. Accessed by an employee card reader, the fitness center features both a gym equipment area and separate Pilates room. Locker rooms for both men and women feature changing areas, lockers, restrooms and shower facilities, all of which is cleaned and restocked twice a day. Pay as you go food is provided on an honor system and fitness classes are offered throughout the week.
The executive suite on level 6 features state-of-the-art conference and training facilities where department division conferences will be held. A large, dividable multi-purpose room accommodates multi-sized groups up to 150 people. Open seating areas and a centralized coffee bar create the opportunity for impromptu meetings. A panoramic view of Houston was preserved through the use of clerestory and full-height glass in addition to raising the ceiling height to 10’6”.
