Crescent to Develop New Facility Next to Adventist Health System HQ
- Apr 11, 2012
Following the December completion of its headquarters, Adventist Health System will once more collaborate with developer Crescent Resources on the construction of a new facility. The company has already started construction on the six-story, 199,777-square-foot office building and parking garage, adjacent to Adventist Health System’s five-story corporate headquarters.
Set on a campus encompassing about 25 acres, the two buildings are on Hope Way, near the intersection of State Road 434 and Maitland Blvd. in Altamonte Springs. Both buildings are designed and built with environmentally friendly design and materials. The corporate headquarters has received LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, incorporating green building materials, energy-efficient design components such as terracotta facade, glazing system, lighting fixtures and controls, mechanical system (HVAC), native landscaping plants and reclaimed water to conserve water resources. That philosophy and dedication continues with the second building.
The buildings overlook a large lake with fountains, and the campus features a bridge to a reflection pond. Nearly 400 employees will occupy the corporate headquarters building and 450 additional employees are estimated to move into the second building. The second building, scheduled for completion in spring 2013, will house support operations for Adventist Health System.
The same team that produced the corporate headquarters is creating the second building. In addition to developer Crescent Resources, the project architect is Little, the contractor is Brasfield & Gorrie and the Project Consultant is Parsons.
“It is a pleasure to join with AHS and the other team members to create an inspiring work atmosphere for AHS employees,” said Whit Duncan, president of Crescent’s commercial division. “The campus respects the environment, as evidenced by the recent LEED certification.”
