The design and construction team has been selected for Centene Corporation’s new East Coast Headquarters in Charlotte, which was announced on the first of July.
This development on a 60-acre sitewill feature office space, an early childhood development center, a training center, as well as walking trails and water features. The design will preserve and take advantage of the campus’s environment with an emphasis on providing open spaces and natural light, and embracing the site’s natural features.
Architecture, interiors, and planning firm LS3P is the architect and interior designer; LandDesign is the site planner; and Uzun+Case is the structural engineer. Syska Hennessy Group will be providing the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering. Chicago based Clayco will be responsible for construction and sitework and Rafco Properties is managing the overall development as project manager.
The construction will occur over several years in multiple phases. Work on phase 1 will begin Aug. 1 and will include the main 770,000 sq. ft. building and a 2,400-space parking garage.
Centene Corporation, a multi-national healthcare enterprise, is investing more than $1 billion to develop the campus that will accommodate approximately 6,000 employees when completed.
“We are very excited to be part of this strong team that Rafco and Centene assembled,” said Clayco executive chairman and founder Bob Clark. “We are all committed to meeting Centene’s high standards in every way.”
