Project Features
  • Concrete tilt-wall and stone facility
  • Embraces AHA's goals and objectives
  • Lobby flanked by an open work environment

This 20,000-sf concrete tilt-wall and stone facility houses the Texas Gulf Coast Regional Chapter of the American Heart Association. Occupying a two-acre site, the program includes a break area overlooking a central courtyard and the lobby flanked on either side by an open work environment and conference center. The AHA desired a facility that embraces the goals and objectives of their organization — the promotion of health and a healthy lifestyle. The building also needed to accommodate a multitude of conditions—daytime work, after-hours entertaining, combating a traditionally high turnover rate of fulltime employees and volunteers, and leveraging their facility as a local icon for their organization. Kirksey delivered a LEED® certified project for little increase in hard construction costs and modest soft costs that are justified by the long- and short-term savings.
