Phase I of Capital One's build-to-suit campus began as a 25-acre greenfield site. The site development encompassed two lakes, lush landscaping, extensive hardscape and site utilities, all built while maintaining the integrity of approximately 20 acres of wetlands, and wetlands mitigation. The three-story, 110,000-sq.-ft. building is a state-of-the-art data/call center that required flexibility in both systems and approach to meet the aggressive schedule. Project highlights included a 100 percent raised floor, two times redundant electrical and mechanical systems, 24/7 occupancy requirements, high-quality employee amenities, and an adjacent, easily-accessible parking deck accommodating 794 cars.
Also, a "blast-track" schedule, Phase II of the development was a 110,000-sq.-ft. mirror image of the Phase I building and included the construction of additional parking for 589 cars. A fifth level 78,400-sq.-ft., 276 spaces, was added to the existing parking deck while maintaining employee use of the existing deck. A separate, lateral deck expansion added 108,000-sq.-ft. for 313 additional cars.
Within the next Phase III, DPR Hardin built the three-story, 118,625-sq.-ft. Community Center which includes a fully equipped, multi-stationed training center, exercise rooms, basketball courts, the human resources department, cafeteria, multi-media breakrooms, resource center, and other employee benefits areas. The Community Center is positioned adjacent to a wetlands area that has been transformed into a nature center with trails, raised walkways, and a sanctuary setting. Phase III also included a 144,500-sq.-ft. office building, similar to previous buildings on-site, along with the second parking deck totaling 411,000-sq.-ft. Other site amenities including a sports complex with softball fields, tennis courts, and a jogging track were also constructed.
