Autodesk offices by HOK, San Francisco

November 11th, 2012 by retail design blog

An innovative integrated project delivery (IPD) approach helped the team achieve LEED Platinum certification for Autodesk’s new gallery, customer briefing center and office space. The new work environment, which is in the landmark One Market in downtown San Francisco, provides world-class collaborative space for the software developer.

The design focuses on reusing existing materials and systems. The team maintained a significant portion of the existing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire suppression system, minimizing new material or waste.

Interior surfaces are kept intact in most locations, with brick walls, concrete columns, ceilings, floors and infrastructure exposed with no new material covering, greatly limiting the total use of new materials in the project.

The IPD relationship was structured as a four-way partnership among two architecture firms, contractor and client, with each team member sharing both risk and reward. Through the efficiencies gained by using BIM and the IPD process, the team achieved key performance and sustainable metrics, including maximizing construction waste recycling to include 95% of all material.
In addition to Autodesk and HOK, the IPD team included DPR Construction and Anderson Anderson Architecture.
