m ARCHITECTS led the design team for Walker Engineering’s new corporate headquarters located in northwest Houston. This ground-up project on a previously undeveloped site includes 20,000 square feet of office space and 10,000 square feet of warehouse storage, along with new driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, an entry court and a detention pond. The design takes advantage of cost-effective tilt-wall concrete construction, while providing a unique identity by accentuating entry features with company branding using rhythmic patterned colored facades. Numerous strategies for energy and employee efficiency were utilized such as site orientation, interiors full of natural light, cooperative work spaces, and high-efficiency LED lighting. Sculpted electrical conduit features are on display in public areas further integrating company trade and brand for this prominent electrical engineering and construction company.
