The office building features a steel frame structure with precast concrete and glass skin. Kforce chose to install an aluminum “eyebrow” around the entire perimeter of the building, creating consistent shade to the building exterior in order to maximize the energy efficiency, while also providing aesthetic appeal. The finished exterior product allowed construction to meet the owner's schedule and budget needs while giving the building a much richer look and feel.
The building's interior also incorporates the historical look of the area by utilizing quarter-sawn cherry panel finishes and furniture. The lobby floor is comprised of terrazzo and is accented on the second and third floors with Mandarin style art.
Safety was a concern throughout the project due to the dangers associated with erecting and securing the steel and precast walls immediately adjacent to high voltage (69kv) backup power lines that service the downtown Tampa area. Through careful implementation of a strong safety plan, including daily safety meetings and subcontractor awareness, the project was completed successfully with no lost-time accidents.
