Fluor Dedicates Headquarters in Texas
Elected officials, business and community leaders, and Fluor employees attended the ceremony.
â€˜This is a historic day for Fluor and our employees," said Alan Boeckmann, chairman and CEO of Fluor, during the dedication ceremony. "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.
"We chose the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex because of its proximity to our clients and key financial and government centers, as well as access to international destinations."
The build-to-suit corporate headquarters was constructed on a 26-acre property located in the Las Colinas business district. The 140,000-square-foot, three-story, dual-wing corporate building was constructed in approximately eight months.
The building is constructed of concrete panels clad in natural Texas limestone and it was designed and built to meet the certification requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. The design team also worked to preserve as much natural vegetation and as many trees as possible during the construction process.
Koll Development Co. (KDC) served as the developer for the corporate headquarters, which houses approximately 180 employees. Worldwide, Fluor has some 38,000 employees in more than 25 countries on six continents.
