Houston, Texas

Skanska, an international construction and project development group headquartered in New York City, NY, contracted Ziegler Cooper to provide design services for the new construction of their Houston office on Level 9 of 3009 Post Oak, after relocating from 1776 Yorktown. The recently completed 3009 Post Oak is a 20-story, 302,000 s.f., Class A, pre-certified LEED Platinum office building. The 15,076 s.f. office space, in Houston’s Galleria area, includes specialty workrooms, a board room, wellness room and an 125-seat multipurpose room. Skanska’s overarching design goal was to transition their office from a closed plan to an open concept workspace, with low panels and benching features. Their office space is now 94% open plan and 6% closed, with 44 workstations and three private offices. The Level 9 design is striving for LEED Platinum CI v.2009 certification.
