SRM Concrete Corporate Headquarters

SRM Concrete Corporate Headquarters | Smyrna, TN

The SRM Concrete Corporate Headquarters consists of an 84,000-sq.-ft., five-story concrete structure. The building includes office spaces for the operational home base of SRM Concrete, full-service cafeteria, workout facility, and a daycare for the employee’s children.

Also included, is a second-story outdoor amenity deck with green space, roof planters, and a connected conference room. This amenity deck is constructed of a three-part concrete system that includes the concrete deck, a sloped lightweight topping slab for drainage, a hot-applied waterproofing barrier, and a decorative concrete walking surface. The green area is constructed of artificial turf and is accessible through the adjacent conference room.

Details

The building features seven different concrete finishes. Many of these finishes are shown off in the main lobby along with a monolithic grand staircase that accesses the second floor through an open atrium. One of the most distinguishing features of this building is that there are no 90-degree angles at any concrete location. All concrete applications are radiused at the corners and further highlighted by the cylindrical concrete columns throughout the building. Additional interior features include polished aggregate concrete floors, demountable partitions at office locations, and decorative millwork to accent the concrete features throughout the building.

A key component of the building’s mechanical system is a geothermal system that includes a mechanical vault connected to 187, 500-ft. wells. The geothermal system means that the building is more sustainable and economically efficient to operate.

The building is enclosed completely by a window wall system that goes from floor to deck to maximize natural light. This system is supported by embedded steel in the concrete along with exterior framing. A mockup of this system was built on-site to review constructability, waterproofing details, and water infiltration.

The building will include office space for the operational home base of SRM Concrete and will also include a full-service cafeteria, workout facility, and daycare for the employee’s children.

Scope

Also included, is a second-story outdoor amenity deck with green space, roof planters, and a connected conference room. This amenity deck is constructed of a three-part concrete system that includes the concrete deck, a hot-applied waterproofing barrier, and a sloped lightweight topping slab for drainage. The green area is constructed of artificial turf and is accessible through the conference room on floor 2.

The building includes seven different concrete finishes. Many of these finishes show off the main lobby along with a monolithic grand staircase that accesses the second floor through an open atrium. One of the most distinguishing features of this building is that there are no 90-degree angles at any concrete location. All concrete structures are radiused at the corners which marry up nicely with the cylindrical columns located throughout the building.

Additional interior features include polished aggregate concrete floors, demountable partitions at office locations, and decorative millwork to accent the concrete features throughout the building. Luxury vinyl flooring and carpet are also included in offices and work areas. Two elevators are located central to the building providing access to all 5 floors. Two stair towers constructed of concrete shaft walls give access to every floor as well, with the east stairwell giving access to the roof.

The building’s mechanical system is supported by a geothermal system that includes a mechanical vault connected to one hundred and eighty-seven, 500-ft. wells that route water to eliminate the need for electric re-heat and help the building be more sustainable and economically efficient.

The building is enclosed completely by a window wall system that goes floor to the deck to allow for the maximum gain of natural light. This system is supported by embedded steel in the concrete along with exterior framing. A mockup of this system is built to review constructability, waterproofing details, and water infiltration.

The building is supported by a 60 Hz generator that is located West of the building. The generator has a 24 hour run with a 774-gallon belly tank. The main transformer is located at this location.

The site, which includes almost 40 acres, paves the way for parking and includes a pond to the North of the building which was made larger as part of the landscape package. All paving, exterior flatwork, and landscaping was performed by the owner. The site also includes an active cemetery where a new entrance and parking is included for this area.

Jefferson Pike was widened at the main entrance of the site and includes a new water main and main power pole. This work was performed by Duggin Construction under the owner.
