Tyson Foods’ headquarters includes two towers and Henderson led the redesign of building systems during a multi-phase renovation.
For tower 1, the first phase involved a thorough building systems assessment of the current conditions of all five stories of tower 1 as well as the 2-story connector building between towers 1 and 2.
Phase two featured tenant improvements of conference spaces, open office space, private offices, break rooms, and family rooms. Our design also allowed for future expansion and connectivity of telecom systems. The 100,000 SF, 5-story tower 2 remodel also included conference spaces, open office space, private offices, break rooms, and family rooms. Some of the mechanical systems design involved a replacement of all existing FCU’s and ventilation upgrades to meet current code requirements. The existing mechanical system and dedicated outside air units were replaced by two roof mounted air handler units, allowing Tyson to gain additional usable square footage per floor and relocate maintenance requirements to the roof.
Knowing that reuse of equipment was important to Tyson, Henderson made sure the power distribution portion of the electrical systems design allowed them to reuse existing panel boards and distribution equipment. We efficiently modified existing plumbing and our design also allowed for future expansion of low-voltage system integration.
