Perini Corporate Headquarters

This project houses the corporate headquarters for Perini Building Company, one of the largest construction companies in the world.  The building aimed to reflect Perini’s commitment to quality and customer service through attention to color, form, and texture as well as well-crafted construction techniques. It includes a large assembly space for continuing education classes, conference space, executive offices, plans review and estimating, accounting and various other spaces that support the day-to-day operations.
Due to the unique shape of the site, the building footprint is a gentle arc and two “arms” that extend to the parking lot to the southwest. This allows for natural daylight throughout the building giving a sense of warmth and saving energy by supplementing artificial light with natural light. The project focuses on a central entry lobby that acts as a transition from the harsh desert climate to the mild conditioned climate of the texture rich interior.
