IRVING, Texas - Fluor Corp. officially dedicated its new global corporate headquarters in Irving, Texas, with elected officials, business and community leaders, and Fluor employees in attendance.

"This is a historic day for Fluor and our employees," said Alan Boeckmann, chairman and CEO of Fluor Corp. "Today, we dedicate this building not only for those employees who are here now, but also for all those who built up this great company over the years and for those who will take it forward in the decades to come."

The official dedication had a decidedly Texas theme as Boeckmann was joined by state and local elected officials to raise a horseshoe on the new building, a time-honored Texas tradition.

The new corporate headquarters houses approximately 180 employees and includes premier amenities such as a commercial kitchen and dining area, employee fitness center, 100-seat auditorium, multiple meeting rooms, a history walk depicting Fluor's nearly century-long history, three-story glass-enclosed atrium, two-story parking facility, and high-end interior finishes, including custom millwork.

The building is constructed of concrete panels clad in natural Texas limestone and was designed and built to meet the certification requirements for the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. The team also worked to preserve as much natural vegetation and as many trees as possible during the construction process.
