This project consists in the construction of 3M headquarters.
The 50 acre site is located on the west side of Veteran’s Memorial Parkway and the north side of Tartan drive. Initial parking facilities were provided for 260 vehicles, however the configuration of the initial phase of development allowed for future expansion of the building in several directions and parking up to an additional 330 vehicles.
The building is a cast-in-place concrete design of shear walls, columns and suspended two-way slabs from the basement up to and including the roof slabs. The building facades offer a mixture of dark reflective curtain walling and prefabricated panelized granite cladding.
Three elevators service the 99,000-square foot building from basement through to the five floors above ground. The ground floor provides common use facilities including a full kitchen, dining facilities, conference rooms, shipping and reception areas, and product display areas as part of the main entrance. From the second floor up, the floor space planning is similar with central core areas, vending areas, and private and open office space, as well as conferencing facilities.
